THE BOARDROOM CLIMBING LTD – 8oz STEAK BURGER

– Rectors Lane Industrial Estate, Rectors Ln, Pentre, Deeside CH5 2DH

The Boardroom Climbing, is a large indoor climbing centre dedicated to providing you with the best utilities, in each form of climbing. The ‘Boardroom‘ is where i usually find myself 2-3 times a week, struggling to climb, socialising and occasionally eating. They have a menu which usually consists of paninis, curry, pizza and cakes but no burgers. For a one off, The Boardroom decided to place on the menu an 8oz Steak Burger, which meant i had to make an immediate trip to feast on the said burger.

BOARDROOM BURGER((8oz steak burger, bacon, fried onions, cheese on a brioche bun))

As a whole the burger did what it stated, just 4 bold ingredients, standing together on a brioche bun, leaving you satisfied that it only cost £5. The steak burger was cooked well-done on a barbecue, which gave it a different taste than your usual burger, but still providing you with that homely feel. What i did find with this burger, is that it felt like a meal my Father would make me when he was let loose with the BBQ. Now that’s not a bad thing at all, its more of a comforting thing.

I’d definitely have this burger again, for £5 how could you not? Burger rating of 5 out of 10.

THE CORN MILL – STEAK BURGER 

– Dee Lane, Llangollen, North Wales 

Burgers are an anomalous, an incomparable blend of whatever ingredients you feel fit. Which is where the beauty lies, in the mind of the creator and at the fingertips of the maker. 

Closing in to nearly 40 opinionatedburger reviews, it seems like burgers have become 90% of my meal intake and this was carried on at lunch, in the beautiful tourist town of Llangollen. 

I won’t babble anymore, I’ll get to the important content. The burger. Labelled as the Steak Burger, I was interested for three reasons; I’ve surprisingly never had a steak burger previously, I was ravenous and what else could I choose from the menu? 

The entire mass and weight of the burger was overwhelming, not so much the amount of content but the size of each ingredient was not done in half portions. The steak which made up most of the burger was of great quality but the flavour overpowered pretty much everything and that was this burgers downfall. 

The steak was of gargantuan size which killed the burger, but with the chips, salsa and cheese following closely behind I managed to finish the burger feeling accomplished and satisfied. 

I’ll stick to ordinary burgers from now on. Burger rating; 3 out of 10.

HICKORY’S – THE HICKORY’S BURGERS (Double) 

– 9 Llandudno Rd, Rhos on Sea LL28 4TR

My 21st Birthday. A special yet terrifying time where nothing has changed yet everything is different and one thing staying concrete is my love of burgers.

My first burger as a 21 year old was the hickory’s burger, a name that’s not inventive in any sense but that doesn’t really matter in this case. The burgers fillings were; seasoned prime beef patties grilled medium-well with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, house sauce and American cheese… Very American? 

The burger was stacked well, making it very pleasing to the eye but meaning you couldn’t take a bite from top to bottom. I guess this is the consequence of your eyes being to big for your mouth. Weirdly this burger tasted different, I’m not sure what it was but then I’m not saying this was a negative thing. Overall it gave you what you wanted, thick well cooked beef, generic salad (lettuce, tomato) and a tasty cheese. 

Overall I did enjoy this burger, but it’s nothing special. Burger rating: 4 out of 10.

HARVEY’S NEW YORK BAR AND GRILL – PULLED PORK BURGER 

– Rhuddlan, Denbighshire, Wales

I’m not sure what Harvey’s New York Bar and Grill think they’re producing with their array of tasteless meat filled burgers but it’s not good news. 

After this visit, it was my second and last visit to the American style restaurant due to foreseen reasons but I was weakened by the persuasion of my peers, this won’t be happening again. Something which seems to be reoccurring, is my choice of pulled pork on my burgers, and the burger I had chosen at Harvey’s was in fact primarily pulled pork. 

 
‘Pulled Pork’ – shredded pork, piled high on a toasted roll. Served with Harvey’s BBQ sauce and onion rings. I’ll start with the onion rings, as they seem to be the hardest to write about. Flavoursome, chewy, small enough to devour without fuss and all round delicious, shame I didn’t order more. The bun which encased the meat, was not toasted and looked/felt like 1 of 4 bread buns you can pick up from a supermarket, that’s not what you want, is it? As they explained, the pork was in its masses, way too much for the ‘toasted bun’ which mean’t towards the end of the burger I was using a knife and fork to try and finish it off, not what you want. 

If you are looking to eat an average meal with a Harley Davidson hung above your table. Then by all means, waste your money on Harvey’s New York Bar and Grill. I rate the ‘Pulled Pork’ at 1 out of 10.

MCDONALDS – BIG MAC

Rhuddlan Road, Abergele LL22 7HZ, Wales

I won’t beat around the bush when reviewing the BigMac burger that McDonald’s have gloriously mothered for so many years. But when you take into account every aspect of the burger, there really isn’t much praise to give. 

What you have is 2 slivers of tasteless beef, minimum salad, and awful amount of BigMac sauce, sitting between 3 pieces of moderate bread. I’ve eaten BigMac’s for around 11 years now, having my first when I was 9 years old and for the price you pay and the convenience it gives you, you can’t seem to stay away. 

That said, the BigMac will always be McDonald’s signature burger and more than likely their most sold burger, but there are many more other options on the menu that would satisfy you in more ways than the BigMac can. The BigMac has always been an occasional choice for me and it will stay that way.

BAR ONE; SHEFFIELD STUDENT UNION – BLACK & GOLD 

– Western Bank, Sheffield, South Yorkshire 

Traveling across the country to visit my close friend while he completes his education in the University of Sheffield is quite a rare opportunity but not one I’ll shy away from. 

  
The evening fell upon Sheffield, so this meant it was around the time to ventre through the beautful city to Sheffield’s Student Union bar, Bar One. Hunger and the Buy One Get One Free voucher which was floating freely about the bar was the deciding vote to get a burger. Having 7 different beef burgers to choose from, did make it an interesting decision but I finally went with the ‘Black and Gold’. The contents were, Monterey Jack, aged cheddar sauce, smoked streaky bacon, jalapeños and ranch sauce, sounds good huh?

  
If so, you would be correct. It’s contents were different but they were sensational together. It was filled with sauces, which is something I do enjoy but i would say they did include many jalapeños, alittle too many for my liking but I should expect so really. Overall it was thoroughly enjoyed, the burger was cooked well, the bread was soft and altogether not too overwhelming, a lovely burger.
