Restaurant Review for The Burgers at Big Sur - Buenos Aires

 

Review by: Ollie O
Rating: 4.0 stars
Review Date: 10/23/2017

Big Sur recently opened in Palermo Zoológico, a little neighborhood that has some of our favorite casual dining options like Trattoria Olivetti and Mishiguene.

Like many of the city’s burger joints, Big Sur falls into our fast-casual dining category. There’s no table service. You order at the table and wait for them to call your name.

Despite the ultra-casual ambiance, lack of air-conditioning, and the lack of table service, the burgers at Big Sur are expensive. The ambiance is on par with other fast-casual burger joints in Buenos Aires, however, the prices are considerably higher.

A cheeseburger with fries and soft drink would have cost you about 200 pesos (US$12.50) at Big Sur in late-2016. That’s close to twice what a similar burger would have cost you at 180 Burger Bar or Perez-H.

The burgers are good. A course grind on a well-seasoned beef patty and a good fat-to-lean ratio. Juicy. A very good burger.

The French fries? Not as good. They were beginning to shrivel-up, having spent a few too many minutes out of the fryer.

These minor shortcomings won’t likely have a big impact on Big Sur’s business. It’s still mostly about location in Buenos Aires. Nobody in that neighborhood is going to drive to Palermo Hollywood to buy a burger at Pérez-H.

But, our low rating for value, reflects the fact that the prices are a bit high for what you get at Big Sur. Luckily for this restaurant, when evaluating burgers, the quality and taste of the meat is weighted most heavily in the evaluation. As a result Big Sur ends up with high overall rating despite high prices and a shortage of ambiance.
