Trixie’s attempt at replicating a 1950’s American-style Diner is admirable. Good service and excellent burgers. Menu full of American-style Diner classics. All done quite well.

Trixie’s attempt at creating a “1950’s American-style Diner” ambiance at the restaurant’s location on Costanera Sur is better than admirable, with many details, including lots of art deco stainless steel, making the experience moderately realistic.

Combine this gimmick with a menu chock-full of American-style dishes (and a few not so American) and you’ve got a formula for success. Or so it seems, since the place is frequently full, especially on weekends.

Perhaps the most successful attempt at replicating American-style cuisine is with the classic burger offered with a variety of condiments.

Be forewarned. Latin chefs have a bad habit of putting Cheez-Wiz on food and calling the liquid plastic sauce, “cheddar cheese”. It’s not even remotely close to being cheddar cheese. Avoid the Cheddar Burger which uses this disgusting goo.

I note that on a recent visit they had once again modified the menu and removed our favorite burger, the Mexican, which had a Texas-style chili-con-carne sauce that made it highly unique, in city where burgers can now be found everywhere. Smart going guys. Remove the only unique burger on your menu. That said, the standard cheeseburger is still an impressive burger, and when matched up with a milkshake, you still have a unique burger experience.

The bun on all the burgers is a classic dome top sesame seed bun that’s been fresh and flavorful on every burger we’ve tried and does a decent job of holding these big ole burgers together.

The fries, although they appear to be the “out of the bag” variety, are hot and crispy.

And check out that big milk-shake in the image slider. Yum. And it’s served up in an authentic glass. I asked for one of those at Burger Joint and they best they could do was offer me a reefer (that’s a marijuana cigarette for those of you don’t hang out at Burger Joint).

Trixie provides real paper napkins, not that horrible tissue paper that seems to be standard at burger joints for some strange reason. If ever there was a restaurant that needs absorbent napkins it’s a burger restaurant. Wake up Burger Joint and Pérez-H. Lose the horrible napkins.

The service at Trixie is hit or miss. They hire very young and inexperienced waitresses, clad in their little Trixie waitress dresses. They young employees seem a bit more interested in talking and flirting with each other than they do watching their tables.

Trixie, although a bit gimmicky, is one of the best spots in Buenos Aires to have a burger.

Speaking of icing on the cake. They have some good American-style desserts worth trying. Read about that the other menu items, including egg, waffle and pancake breakfasts, in our full review of Trixie.
