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.
