We might be getting to the heavy-hitters right about now. I’m dying to go to Craigie on Main, Radius, and all the other high end restaurants in town that serve burgers. But, I’m totally aware that these are fine-dining restaurants, not burger specific eateries, and if you don’t think that matters, think again. I fully expect all these “high end” burgers to be outstanding, my expectations are high, and I may not be so kind in my reviews, not that I have been in any way so far. Value is a huge aspect in finding the best burger, in my opinion, and spending any more than $10 is borderline pricey for something that is a food for the people, and should be affordable to all. continue reading »

Nick has sworn off burgers for a month. Sounds like a bad idea to me, this being a website about burgers and all. I also think I’ve done all I can with this website myself, and I think it may be time for someone with experience to spruce it up a bit. Since we’re not exactly making any money on this blog (advertisers come this way!) I’d love for someone to do it for free, which may be asking a lot I realize, but maybe we can work something out. Please contact me if you or someone you know might be interested. Also, because it’s a sign of the times, Boston Burger Blog is now on Twitter, we’ll see how long/if we can keep it up or if we even like doing it. You can find us as: bostonburger, spread the word!
Ah, the Burger Crawl. I’m not sure who’s brilliant idea this was (let’s blame Nick), but I sure as hell promoted it and was as excited as anyone. Six burgers in a day? No problem, I could fast the night before, not eat breakfast and be good to go. It was spaced out perfectly, an hour and a half in between stops, some good walking to stretch us out, surely it couldn’t be that bad?? To be honest, we had an amazing time, despite the lousy weather, and the bloated feeling that we might never eat another burger again, this was one for the ages. Some folks run marathons (or you can be like Katie, run marathons and eat a ton of burgers), some people try to find a cure for cancer. But us, we like our red meat, and lots of it, but that’s nothing new. continue reading »
“We are not gluttons.” At least that’s what it says on our home page. But it has been called to my attention that, well, perhaps we are gluttons. Privately, I think people eat way too much meat, don’t really appreciate vegetarian cooking and consume way too much food that is generally unhealthy. Publicly, I boast about burgers and how fat tastes good and the burger crawl. Oh my, the burger crawl. I’m sort of a small guy, but I can eat when I have to. Of course nobody has to eat six burgers in a day, but I’m pretty sure I can do it. But I am completely torn lately, I love quality and local ingredients, organic is terrific in the right place and I hate processed foods. But between burgers every week and unhealthy “guy” food every football Sunday, I’m beginning to spiral out of control. I don’t feel good about eating these things, and it totally contradicts everything I stand for professionally. Hopefully I can turn it around, eat a burger once a week at the maximum, and make football Sunday’s a great way to introduce heal
