Johnny Angel's 6.5 out of 10
For our next review it brought us to Johnny Angel's. We received a few suggestions from people to check this place and their burger. Before we go into the burger just let me tell you that this is a place to see. I felt like going back into a time warp into the 'Back to the Future' and showing up into the 50's. I love that. The entire atmosphere in there was very entertaining. But enough of the hype going into the real reason why we were there. They have a nice selection of burgers, from your James Dean to your Atomic burger. I picked the Heavy Chevy which comes with chili which is also a challenge by itself for restaurants to make enjoyable to eat. Anyway, here is what was served as the Heavy Chevy as the presentation. Before I get into the specifics let me just mention that we also ordered the onion rings which I'm a huge fan off, if they are done correctly. Believe me, there are many restaurants that can't make onion rings or even french fries correctly and in other words are shyte. I have to say, they probably made the best onion rings I have had so far.
They were awesome, huge, perfectly cooked, tasty, so worth getting. But enough of that, lets look at the burger. The burger was perfectly cooked how I ordered it. The chili on top was by the best alright. I spent many years in Texas and got spoiled for having awesome chili. So in this case, wish it would have been better. Actually I have to say that the burger was good, but not where I would go, out of the ordinary. I felt that it lacked a lot of seasonings in the meat. Even the chili was kinda of blahhh. Was OK, not bad, but was missing something, if you know what I mean. Same for the burger, it was OK. Now, if you take this burger with the combination of the atmosphere, the fries and the onion rings. Sure, I would order it again. Great place to hang out and enjoy the surroundings. But because we are doing a burger review here. Would I come here just for this burger, sadly I would have to say no. I know my partner in crime has a bit of a different view on his burger that he received and his review is coming next.
