Smashburger had been mentioned on more than one occasion for a HBC meeting but chains usually don’t have the same appeal as a unique 50 year old hole-in-the-wall.  But this time, Dave G, attending possibly his last HBC meeting ever before heading out around the world on his motorcycle, put his Chaco wearing foot down [...]


Vic & Anthony’s Steakhouse

April 16, 2010

Who knew that such an expensive place would be such a hit?  14 people came from all over town to go check out the nicest Burger Club outing yet.  Chris came straight from the shop, Dave came from vacation or something like it since he showed up in shorts which was clearly against the dress [...]

Pappas Burger

July 18, 2009

Fries were good, but didn’t match the quality of the burger; onion rings might be the better option. $9.85 for a cheeseburger but this includes fries. OVERALL [...]


Lankford Grocery & Market

June 6, 2009

Overall, a really good burger experience. Sitting outside, the second Burger Club meeting did not disappoint. Lankford’s lived up to its reputastion with a good burger all around and spectacular tater tots. Six members attended while two (of seven) guest participants submitted their own scores which weren’t factored into the final rating. $4.60 for a [...]
