Take a look at the burgers above. Which do you think is from Chili's, a national chain? Which do you think is from Chomp Burger (Adrian, MI), an actual burger joint?
When I look at the photo on the left (top if you're on mobile), I see a handmade patty that looks like it's a solid 1/2 pound or so. Ignore the onion ring and bacon, and just focus on the bun and the patty of beef.
The burger on the right (bottom if you're on mobile) has a smaller patty and a bun that is covering the meat for the meal ahead.
Which would you rather have? I think the choice is obvious; we'd all take the one on the left.
Not sure if you'll believe me, but the burger on the left is from Chili's, and the one on the right is from Chomp Burger. Chili's is on their game, and unfortunately, locations calling themselves burger joints are not always standing up to the competition that simply shouldn't be competition at all.
In the past year, we've become growingly frustrated with burger joints not paying attention to the simple details that can create a very solid burger. Even though we haven't owned our very own restaurant or bar, we have visited many locations on the burger trail that keep it simple and end up creating an awesome burger.
