Editorial Review

Tim Carman compared Z-Burger's burgers to other local patties for an article in the July 9, 2008 Food Section: Price and weight: $2.99 for single, $4.09 for double; 3.5 ounces per patty. Meat: A blend of ground sirloin, chuck and brisket, with 20 percent fat. The source is a company secret. Bun: A sesame seed bun custom-made by a local bakery. Atmosphere: Industrial playground. Verdict: These burgers follow the major-league baseball model: no juice. The condiments and soft, sweet bun do all the work, particularly because Z-Burger does not season its patties before throwing them on the griddle. The owner hints that this may change.

Eh

The burgers are fine, but not great. The fries are fine, but not great. The onion rings are too thick and quite doughy. The milkshakes are VERY GOOD.
