A cheeseburger doesn’t get much more unappealing than the one we had yesterday at Grind.*
Overcooked. Tough. Under-seasoned. Stale tasting.** On a day-old bun with a minimum amount of cheese underneath the meat.
Get it? They put the cheese underneath the burger. That’s so you’ll know how cool and different they are.
But they’re neither. It’s just a low rent, over-processed slab of ground meat masquerading as something it’s not.
And what it’s not is in the same league with Burger Bar, BLT Burger, Stripburger, In-N-Out, or any number of better burgers around town.
It costs $10.
Just thought you’d like to know.

* Neither does a turkey “burger”. We at ELV found it as atrocious as the beef — dry, under-seasoned, also served on a stale bun, and flavorless. The half “Buffalo” chicken was juicy, but so far from spicy as to be almost dull. The chopped salad was okay, and at least tasted like what it was, and the edamame beans were edible. On the plus side, they give free, unlimited refills on all sodas.
** A good hamburger should taste of deep, dark brown, sweet and savory caramelized flavors. Of minerals, iron and the earth. Of umami. This burger tasted like the color grey.
