Y&H Dining Guide by the Day: BGR: The Burger Joint

burger-joint-pic1BGR: The Burger Joint is beginning to scare me. The small chain is growing at a rate usually reserved for malignant cancers—or Five Guys franchises—but it isn’t showing any signs of declining health. The quality of the BGR burger remains feverishly high. Whatever source owner Mark Bucher has for his blend of prime, dry-aged beef, here’s hoping that well never runs dry, even after the Joint has come to a strip mall near you.

    My posts are particularly well-timed this week (see Metrocurean and Liberty Tavern picnic supper as well). Yes; I'm shameless in my own promotion.


    While I love a good hamburger as much if not more than most.....I am worried at the burger "explosion" of late....

    IMO...its quality not the quantity of chains.

    FIVE GUYS has declined since its humble beginnings....lets hope BGR does not follow the same path (though it is not my favorite burger joint by far).
