Restaurant Review for The Burgers at Indiana - Buenos Aires

I just made two more recent visits to restaurants with hamburgers on their menus hoping to find one that truly gets me salivating.

The search took me to Indiana in Palermo Soho today. This place is all things YANQUI from the menu to the decorations on the wall. Truly red, white and blue. I presume this place is owned by a gringo as it didn’t really look like a “copy cat” kind of restaurant (e.g. MUU Alabama 50s Diner). I was hoping with a gringo owner I might finally sink my teeth into a burger worthy of the name. No such luck.

On delivery of the burger it looked promising. A nice onion roll and a creamy special sauce. The burger appeared to have been cooked the way we ordered it ... medium rare. But a couple of bites and the disappointment began to surface. Another slab of ground meat that just wasn’t up to snuff. On this one the grind was way too fine and the patty had been compressed (a sin in the religion of burgers) such that it had this rubbery, chewy texture. It sort of tasted like I imagine the frozen patties you can buy in the grocery store in cardboard boxes would taste. I didn’t even finish it.

The fries were cut from real potatoes but were limp and greasy. The onion were crisp but nothing unusually unique about them. Overall a less than average burger.

The bartender was doubling as the waitress. Luckily the place was not busy or service might have been an issue as a result of the lack of personnel.

Final verdict. These guys barely rate a review as result of a descent ambiance and service and the fact that a menu full of unique American-style cuisine is creative in and of itself.

I might be back sometime to have a drink and sample the ribs or a Fletcher’s dog if I really get homesick. But for my beloved burger I’m still in search of the place that can do one justice.
