Wild Commons Burger Review

Wild Commons- Marquette University

This review excites me tremendously because I have generally considered the dorm food at Marquette questionable. Sodexo (campus food provider) has been commonly known as providing students with rather disgusting food on campus, so I decided it would be a grand burger to review. My freshman year, some Marquette students created an Instagram account, where they post pictures containing some of the items that have been found within some of their food. Some of the items include: workers hair, a bolt, undercooked chicken meat, and plenty of others. These expectations were shattered. I actually really enjoyed the cheeseburger. In the back of Wild Commons, by the barbecue line, they have their own grill for grilling chicken breast and other meats. I asked for a burger with cheddar cheese and bacon on the side. The burger was nearly cooked to perfection, with the exception of being a tad overcooked. This is actually unusual, because I usually find the opposite. This being said, I would rather have my burger overcooked than undercooked. The sides were definitely a little charred, but the inside was golden. The cheese perfectly melted onto the patty. On top of the cheese some juicy bacon rested. Now is where things get interesting… the bun. At McCormick Hall (the previous freshman dorm)the bread that they used for the buns were tragically horrendous; I always kept very low expectations before entering. That being because they were super crunchy. The buns at Wild Commons were soft, which is one of the best things a burger bun can possess. I also added barbecue sauce on the side, which added a flavorful kick. All together, Wild Commons burger receives an unexpected overall rating of 7.1/10.
