One Man Band is an all-american diner with “one man” doing all the cooking, order taking, checkout and everything in between. Their most popular burger is the All-American so we gave it a try and here’s our One Man Band All-American burger review. The surprising thing about today’s burger adventure was that it wasn’t one man. We quickly noticed a lady helping clean up the tables, dishes and offering occasional refills. I’m not usually against good service but it did take a little bit away from the notion that this was a One Man Band. The burger menu covered blue cheese burgers to swiss, cheddar burgers on rye to Hawaiian burgers and everything in between but still, I can see why the All-American was the most popular. We’ll call her “old reliable”.
I was especially excited to add a fried egg for $.65 which as I’ve said before will make any burger better. The lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions were very fresh and flavorful. They were the perfect size and thickness for the burger so credit to the chef on the condiments. The bun was also nicely toasted and not only lasted the entire meal but tasted great. The All-American cheeseburger at One Man Band does come with cheese and bacon as well and this bacon was as close to perfect as I’ve had in a while. It was relatively thin but extremely flavorful and the perfect bacon burger texture (crunchy and chewy at the same time). Now for the beef patty, average. It wasn’t bad but wasn’t mouth watering worthy. The condiments helped but the patty could have used some seasoning or something to make it special. Overall the One Man Band burger is another reliably good burger that isn’t worth a special drive just to eat it, but won’t disappoint you if you’re in the neighborhood and looking for a burger. The fries were much like the burger as far as average goes. They were the thick cut (my personal favorite) but the sporadic seasoning and relative “plainness” made the fry sauce a necessity and made the fries just as reliable but not outstanding as the burger.
In a nutshell, there’s a reason one-man bands are never at the top of the iTunes music list. The burger and fries combo ends up at $8ish with a drink and was a filling lunch but nothing to drive out of your way for. If you’re hungry for a mean breakfast, I’d recommend the breakfasts over the burger anytime.
