…XXX Burger

This was. By far. The most unbelievable dining experience Beck or myself have ever had. We left almost speechless. It was treacherous. I would have rather paid to eat sticks and leaves in the forest across the street.

Today, Beck was wanting a nice, juicy burger for lunch and that sounded good to me! He suggested Five Guys or our favorite, Herfy’s, but I was wanting to try something new. He had been to XXX Burger a couple times before and thought it was pretty decent. But this time around. NO ONE could have predicted what we were getting ourselves into.

WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE?

We pulled up to Nasty Burger, I mean, XXX Burger, and the parking lot was PACKED; as it usually seems to be? You walk inside and it’s a cluttered retro feel, with vintage road signs, old jukeboxes, neat artifacts, and notes all along walls and shelves. Dusty Galore. But a lot of cool things to look at, nonetheless. Music was great, too. Old Elvis, Buddy Holly, and Harry Belafonte just to name a few.

That was the end of the “pleasantness”, though.

We walked in to a packed restaurant with one empty, dirty table. It took at least 10 minutes for someone to notice we had sat down AND we also had to ask her to wipe off the table. The confusion of the staff in this joint was unreal. One girl was even reluctant to take our orders and afterward, another girl came by and asked if we had been taken care of. Is there no system in place for these servers to work under? She brought Beck his strawberry malt, which was clearly whipped cream and strawberry syrup, only. No ice cream was tasted.

It wasn’t until 1/4 of the way through, that we could tell it really was just NOT good. Also noticing a small hair on the condensation of the outside of the glass. Vomit, please.

How bad could a burger be, right? Or a chicken Philly? The answer is bad. Worse than bad.

I ordered the “Chevelle SS 396 – mushroom burger” and Beck ordered the “55 Camaro – Chicken and cheese Philly”. You cannot tell me either of these look appetizing:

It makes me sick just looking at it.

My burger was $9.95 and the ONLY good thing about it was the crunchy, buttery bun. I LOVE curly fries and ALWAYS never have enough. I didn’t eat more than a small handful of these. They were just NOT good. I’d rather have to have a McDonald’s Mcdouble for a hamburger for the rest of the my life if I was craving one… than this garbage on a bun. I was starving and barely ate half.

Beck’s “chicken” philly was the ultimate disgust. DOES IT NOT LOOK REPULSIVE?! Who would eat that?! A pile of CHEESE and ONION grease with 4 chunks of chicken…intermixed with soggy bacon and green bell peppers. He almost got sick from looking at it. I seriously can’t talk…or type about it anymore. It was sickening.

One of the several girls who was walking aimlessly around came by to check on how everything was. We were honest and told her how awful it was. Whether you feel bad doing that or not, it has to be done. How can any place learn from or improve if they have offended/disgusted a customer who will not be returning?! She apologized and offered to get us a new one, but Beck had just told her to please remove it from the bill and that will be fine. He had completely lost his appetite. She said she would ask her manager what can be done and walked away. Another random server had come up to our table to take away the sandwich and told us she’d get it replaced. Again, is there no system for these servers to operate under? We already said we didn’t want another one. The former server who we complained to, prior, came back with a bill and said her manager had taken the Philly off the ticket.First of all, WHAT KIND OF RESTAURANT MANAGER, THAT HAS ANY VALUE OR CUSTOMER SERVICE, DOESN’T COME TO THE TABLE COMPLAINING FOR ANY EXPLANATION OR APOLOGY?! We were dumbfounded that the manager him/herself didn’t even come over to us to offer another solution. Despicable. This place is CASH ONLY, too and luckily I had some. We left the money for my disgusting $10 burger and Beck’s milkshake and we split like a banana in one of those nasty shakes.

NEVER. GO. TO XXX BURGER. EVER. IN. YOUR. LIFE.
