A while ago, my friends and I went to lunch together. I'm always on the lookout for new burger places and I haven't tried HB Burger even though I've heard good things about it. So we finally went to my happiness. It was pretty crowded that day but they have a whole seating section downstairs as well. We didn't have to wait at all.
We didn't need to take long to figure out what we wanted to order. My friend had the Cajun Crab Cake burger ($14) which came with a pickle spear and fries. He seemed to enjoy it though he did mention that it wasn't impressive. It satisfied him just fine but he wouldn't rave about it either.
I had the HB burger ($8) which cheddar (+$1.25) and sauteed onions (free). I ordered it medium rare and it came out just the way I ordered it. The meat was juicy and fatty. Grease and meat juices ran down onto the plate. It was delicious. It did need some ketchup but sparingly. There was enough flavor from the beef and the seasonings. I would absolutely order this again.
