Parkers Drive-In Double Burger and Fries is Average

Parker’s Drive-In located in on State St. in American Fork has been around since 1953.  Famous for their ice cream and sundaes, Parker’s also offers a Jumbo Cheeseburger or Jumbo Hamburger and thick, fresh french fries that go well with their refined fry sauce.  I went with the Jumbo Burger to make sure I gave my first trip to Parker’s Drive-In a strong effort and it was a huge meal.  I was the only one in the place so everything was fresh and I watched them make everything.  The burger was Average at best and it’s because of the meat.  They skimped on the meat quality so rather than having a juicy, fresh tasting burger it was a dry, low quality burger.  The toppings were fresh, the bun was good but the core of the burger, the meat, was lacking.

Rumbi Grill has a Kahuna Burger and it is Delicious

Rumbi Grill Kahuna Burger with Rumbi FriesMy first ever trip to Rumbi Grill resulted in my exposure to a surprisingly refreshing Kahuna Burger.  This burger was wonderfully delicious!  With two beef patties marinated with a teriyaki sauce, swiss cheese, grilled pineapple and the addition of really fresh lettuce and a slice of tomato.  The bun is also slightly toasted on the inside and “stretchy” on the outside so it lasts all the way to the end of the meal.  The Kahuna burger also tasted heathier than any other burger I’ve had.  The beef patties weren’t dripping with grease, in fact I don’t think there were any grease drippings.

Little Acorn’s Shadow Fighter is worth the Trip

Little Acorn is a fun little burger joint in Pleasant Grove off of State St. (they have another location in Springville but let’s talk about Pleasant Grove).   I’ve never been there when it’s busy and this trip was the same.  Two other groups, one person taking orders, someone else cooking the food and that’s the experience.  Located in an old chinese food restaurant, Little Acorn has the atmosphere of a chinese restaurant (big fish tank when you walk in with a lucky Buddha by the cash register) but their special “Shadow Fighter” burger is quite nice.  What makes this burger unique is the bread it’s served with.  Here’s how it looks: Continue Reading

Five Guys is the best burger in town….any town!

If you haven’t heard about Five Guys, let me be the first to say that it is the Best Burger in Town!…..any town!  For about $10 a meal (including fries and a drink) you will experience a deliciously hand-made burger, real potato fries and an atmosphere that makes everything better.  They have two locations in Utah now, both in Salt Lake County.  My favorite is in Sandy by SouthTowne Mall.  When you walk into a burger joint the best way to tell if it’s good is the line.  Today’s line up was almost out to the door at 12:30pm.  Here’s the picture Continue Reading

JCWs Cheeseburger and Fries Combo is Classic

JCWs CheeseburgerOne of my favorite burger places happens to be located just down from my office in American Fork, Utah.  JCWs is wonderfully delicious at every level.  The french fries are always perfectly cooked and are thick enough to handle fry sauce or ketchup and a great combination of crispy and soft.  Part of what makes JCWs so good is the atmosphere.  It’s not a greasy burger joint yet it’s not a fancy restaurant so that means it’s a great place to sit down and enjoy a cheeseburger and fries.
