Had a business lunch and the client had picked this as the location. My first time to this chain, apparently the “theme” is burgers and booze. Calling themselves a Wind and Burger Bar it’s the latest and greatest in the evolving sit down full service burger joints. While the client mentioned this was their first time to this location, apparently there are others located in North Jersey as well, someone in my office said they are slated to open one in the Edison area.
Long story short…I don’t get the draw of these $10-$15+ burger places. I ordered the Turkey Sloppy Joe burger no fries, (which the burgers do NOT come with) and the turkey burger was “ok”. Its my bad for not realizing the sloppy joe would be ground turkey not formed into a patty instead just piled on the bun…taste was Ok, nothing offensive, nothing great. The clients enjoyed their burgers as well, but I just don’t understand the draw of the place. Obviously I’m not a big burger guy…so this entire concept is a bit lost on me. The business seemed to be doing well…I have no idea how long they have been open. They offer “American Kobe” beef as an upgrade and I think the menu said it was a $6. upcharge for the “American Kobe” beef substitute. So that places the burgers in the $15-$20+ range. ((shrugs))
They do have a ton of different burgers from a po’ boy, which has andouilli sausage in the patty and topped with craw fish and a spicy mayo…(one client had that and liked it, although they wouldn’t cook it less than medium well)
I won’t be back…but if you are in the mood for a burger and a brew feel free to check them out.
