Overall, the meat was cooked pretty well, albeit a little on the drier side (as they don't serve anything more rare than medium-well). They had an interesting tangy sauce to go with the bacon and pepperjack cheese, which I thought worked quite well. All-in-all, not a bad thing.
Apparently they added seasoned fries to the menu. That being said, they did take the burger off of the cheaper, value menu slot, and this was a special anyways, but still it wasn't that bad of a deal. It's Denny's so you're pretty safe overall. I'd imagine this would be amazing at like 2AM.

All in all, it was pretty good. You could tell that the beef was used for making cheesesteaks as it was generally pretty lean. For a place that had kind of an old diner feel, the lack of greasiness in the meat was fairly nice. It gave a full beefy flavor. This burger was then topped with cheese, which being a cheesesteak place was melted quite nicely, grilled onions, a hickory BBQ sauce, and jalapenos. Overall the execution was pretty good, though I do have to say that the concept behind the burger itself wasn't extraordinarily well thought out. The ingredients sort of clashed for flavor, and for the first few bites I couldn't quite decide what to make of the contrast between the jalapeno kick and the sweetness of the BBQ sauce, which in and of itself I thought was slightly overpowering. Overall though, I thought the burger pretty good.
The fries were pretty "well-done" for all you In-N-Outers out there. They were left in the fryer a little longer and came out crispy, but not overly so, which was good. Overall, a pretty nifty novelty place, what with all the historic pictures on the wall and that, but I'd probably go with the steak sandwich more than the burger next time.

The burger was done really well, that much is true. The burger was in fact quite juicy. The Cajun Burger that I got was done well, it was well spiced to bring out the overall flavor of the burger. I'm not sure if there was like a special mayo on it, but hey it was good. The other fixings were quite well done, it had some tang with the pickled chiles. The bun was a kind of hard roll which was well done. Kind of light and fluffy, but well toasted.
The fries were pretty run of the mill, though they were called Yukon Gold fries so I'd imagine those were type of potatoes used. Overall, it's a good place to go and grab a burger. It's a little pricier than what I think is warranted as everything is paid for separately (i.e. burger, fries, and drink), there are no real combos, but hey, the burger is good. I'd come out for it again, sometime. Should probably try the other sides too.

Overall, the burger was about as plain as you can get. I mean, it could've been worse, but it definitely wasn't on par with what I would consider top tier fast food (i.e. In-N-Out and Five Guys). Very, very forgettable. Not even the roller skating waitress made up for that, she looked about as excited to be there as I did after having my burger. Everything was just plain, which is again, not to say bad, but I'm not exactly going to go out of my way for backyard BBQ type stuff. Then again, I may have just insulted a bunch of backyard BBQers with that comparison.
Fries were the normal fries like you'd get at a Burger King or generic local burger joint. Nothing worthwhile. Overall, I have to say, major disappointment. Can't really say I understand the appeal of the place.

However, only having a quarter of the burger was sufficient for me to get a good idea of the burger. The onion straws were good, the bacon was a good touch. The patties were well cooked, but I did notice a major disparity between the first and second patties, not necessarily in quality but in size, the second was significantly smaller. They supposedly had a special brewhouse sauce on the burger, but the flavor from the onion straws kind of over powered it.
They have wedge fries, which are always a plus, which are essentially jo-jos, which are a plus. Jo-jos are always a plus.

The burger in and of itself was pretty well made, the patty large and juicy, and it was grilled (duh) with a nice char. However, after that, there really was absolutely nothing to distinguish this burger from its smaller counterpart found at a local picnic BBQ. It was just a hunk of ground beef cooked on a professional grill. Served with lettuce tomatoes, two large cups of ketchup, and a side of fries. Not bad, not great, certainly not worth the price. So if you ever venture here, get some BBQ, not a burger.

Yes, there is a patty under there, it wasn't phenomenal, but it was pretty good. You can't really rate the fixings or condiments a whole lot when you kind of pick your own, the selection overall was pretty good, with banana peppers added to the normal selection of pickles, onions, lettuce, and tomatoes. I opted for mayo and their BBQ sauce, which was nice and tangy. Otherwise, a generally forgettable meal.
The fries were pretty typical of a fast food joint, let's say comparable to Wendy's, good not great. If you find a Roy Rogers not in a service station I'd like to know where so I can go. Otherwise, it's not really worth making a trip for.
