I would classify Sobelmans as a sports bar. TV’s fill the air, and if its late at night, their will most likely be a sporting event on. The vibe you feel is electric and contagious. The energy is upbeat due to the loud music and conversation buzzing. Considered as one of Milwaukee’s best burger joints, Sobelmans does not disappoint. The menu offers a wide variety of famous burgers (15 exactly). I ordered The Sobelman which entails American, Swiss and cheddar cheese with bacon, fried onions, and diced jalapeños. I’m not a big fan of spices, so I opted out of the Jalapeños. Don’t worry if you don’t dabble with spices as well, there is plenty of other flavors to enjoy. When you get a burger, and a toothpick is holding it all in place, you know you are in for a treat. With the first bite, you immediately taste the variety of cheeses in the burger. For a Wisconsin burger, this is premium. The patty itself is cooked to perfection. It’s well done with little to no burnt edges. I am also a big fan of the bacon on the burger. It isn’t chewy, but it also isn’t too crispy. It’s a perfect medium. The burger also comes with French fries on the side. I would describe them as very crispy, which is the best kind. Lathered with ketchup, it’s a wonderful delight. All in all, I would say that Sobelmans lives up to the hype and deserves an overall score of 9.1/10.
While at the resort I’m staying at in Puerto Rico, I decided
to venture to the poolside café, and order myself a delectable cheeseburger.
Now folks, this wasn’t no ordinary cheeseburger. This patty was met not only
with cheese, but it was slathered between bacon, ham, and an egg. You simply
cannot go wrong getting bacon on a cheeseburger, and egg is slightly common,
but I have never consumed a cheeseburger with ham on it. I actually really
enjoyed the ham; however, the egg was a bad choice. This was because it was runny
and showered the bun and patty with its juice. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge
fan of the egg on the burger because it adds a very zesty taste. I prefer the
egg over easy, so it doesn’t create such a mess. The bun became soggy, which
wasn’t enjoyable. The burger itself was a tad undercooked, which is direct no
in my book. There is nothing in this world I would like besides a well-cooked
burger with a Pepsi on the side with ice. Keeping mind everything, I would
consider the 5 o’clock burger at Margaritaville extremely average, deserving a
score of 6.2/10.
I have always been an avid fan of the Johnny Rockets burger. I vividly remember devouring my first cheeseburger in the Great America theme part in Gurnee, IL. The experience was eye opening. I didn’t want it to end. The JR bacon cheeseburger is slightly greasy, but that just ads to the flavor. JR has dominated the fast food industry for some time now, and it is quite apparent why. Within the confines of the kitchen, you can see sparkling silver grill and fryer equipment. The employees take a lot of care into the craft of grilling their cheeseburgers. When going to JR, I highly recommend getting a milkshake. Although it doesn’t come with the burger. Fries are also highly recommended. If your feeling dicey, dip the fries into the shake for a whirlwind of taste bud explosion.
I would classify the burger as slightly above par. I am a big fan of the flavor that comes with biting into a JR bacon cheeseburger. It reminds me a lot of the famous burger that comes of the In-N-Out burger that has captured the heart of the West. Each JR burger contains “special sauce,” however, it takes extremely acute taste buds to decipher the taste. The bun takes a lot of the blow of the taste, which is something that doesn’t appeal to me. On the upside, the burger is cooked medium with minimal chew to it. Overall, it’s an above average burger with a rating of 7.2/10.
