Never in doubt

The truth was, it was over long before it started. From the minute we walked into Burgers Bar in Ramat Beit Shemesh I knew that it would not compare with the ultimate burger. The Burger Buddy would not go down to some Israeli 300 gram double burger with fries and and a coke.

The decor didn't compare, but the food was excellent. The fries and onion rings were crisp, the ketchup was cold, and the fried chicken nuggets were first rate. But we weren't there to munch on side dishes or amuse ourselves with fried chicken. Today was all about the burger.

I should preface this by saying it was my second Burgers Bar experience in as many days. Last night we had Burgers Bar delivered in Raanana, which meant the food wasn't going to be nearly as good as it was in the store. Still, it gave me a chance to prepare myself for the moment of truth.

But back to lunch in Beit Shemesh. To set the scene for you, we were with Richie and Michal, my three kids, and two of their three. The weather was cooperative, and we dined outside on the sidewalk.

The burger was great. It just wasn't world class. And after talking to the owner of the Burgers Bar in Beit Shemesh, I found out that in his opinion he didn't even have the best Burgers Bar in Israel. To him, the best one is in the German colony in Jerusalem. If you don't think your burger is the best in your chain, how am I supposed to believe it is a top burger.

Anyway, if you are in Beit Shemesh, stop in and check it out. If you are stuck in Brooklyn, there is a Burgers Bar opening there sometime soon. But if you are stuck in Brooklyn, don't wait for Burgers Bar to come to you. Get out while you still remember how to read.
