This review is a little overdue truly, I ate here a few months back, but haven’t been able to rave about this place through the blog. So far, only my family and friends know how much I loved eating at this gem. I mean I’m no burger connoisseur, but this joint is hands down the BEST burger in Hamilton. Ever since they made King William their home they have been masterfully cleansing our palates of all the sh*tty burgers that came before them.
Hambrgrs’ motto is plain and simple they make a good f*cking burger, the goal is to focus on what a good burger entails and deliver the best experience for their customers. Making a downright delicious burger isn’t rocket science, although I believe Hambrgr has nailed the formula. A burger from here will cure the hangry (when someone is hungry and angry because they are hungry), the hung over or someone who simply is in need of some satisfaction.
Locals will be glad to know that Hambrgr uses ONLY locally sourced ingredients delivered daily to their location, obviously to ensure that their burgers are delivered to their full personality and flavour. Every burger patty is made with fresh AAA chuck and is made right on location.
During my first visit to Hambrgr I was able to enjoy the “Montezuma’s Revenge”. This burger features house pickled jalapeno, smoked cheddar, crispy onions, Sambal mayo and iceberg lettuce. If you have the appetite of an ancient warrior this burger will not disappoint and delivers on all levels of taste. For those of you who like a little kick to their burger definitely, try Montezuma’s Revenge when you come to Hamburger.
I was also able to sample the “Have you ever heard of a patty melt?,” courtesy of my boyfriend. This burger features caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, Russian Porter dressing, butter toasted rye bread that is certainly a classic melt. Nothing is better than a burger on a healthier bread option right? It makes you feel a little better about devouring until you can barely eat another bite, but who are we kidding? You won’t have eater’s regret after eating a burger like this one.
Of course, no meal would be complete without a fabulous side to go with it. We decided to try out the “half & half”, which was half hand cut potatoes and half sweet potatoes fries, which can only be considered as the best of both worlds. The fries were served with Sambal mayo which was an absolutely perfect companion to these delicious fries.
Not only was the food great, but they also have a great atmosphere. The restaurant is small so seating arrangements can be cozy but it is a great spot to hit up with a couple of friends. It seems that small places are the way to go nowadays; they are cozy, intimate and add a feeling of closeness to other people who are there for the same reason you are: Good times, great food and drinks.
Hambrgr just proves that you don’t have to go much further than your own backyard to get a great homemade burger, okay so maybe it’s further than your backyard, but how can you say no to meat that literally melts in your mouth? Thank you Hambrgr for a mouth-watering experience. Next time I’ll be back hungrier than the last time I was there.
