ROAD TRIP!!! Nothing says good times and great beers like a good ole fashioned road trip. Since one of our RSB’s was turning the spry age of 40 this weekend, we were off on a quest for an awesome burger not located in the Sacramento region. Our journey took us to the Russian River Pub in Forestville, CA. Guy Feiri recently featured this roadside pub on his show DDD. As we sat down on their outdoor seating area we were cheerfully greeted by the owner and waitress. Read More, see photos→
I had never heard of Gatsby’s, but that’s why we RoShamBurger – to discover new places. Looking at their website, I gained little info, other than its loose ties to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby by way of roaring 20′s inspired art.
Entering the diner, it wreaked of burgers (which is a good thing). I soon discovered why, in the middle of the dining area were two teppan grills normally reserved for Beni Hanna’s and the like. But instead of flipping shrimp into chef hats, they were cooking burgers to order on the large griddles. Read More→
I liked Burger Me in Truckee. It’s location at the end of its heavily tourist laden main drag is perfect. You can park across from Burger Me, grub, and then walk a couple blocks to the American Bar, while wives and girlfriends shopping in one of the 80 nic-nak shops along the way, it’s a win-win.
Back to the burger review.
We stopped here because Guy Feiri, had done a show from here, which usually means it’s gonna be good; and it did not disappoint. Burger Me started as a Food Bank, but quickly became known for their burgers. So, they opened Burger Me to front the operation. They still run the Food Bank, but ever since Guy stopped by, the burgers are taking front stage.
After standing in a bit of a line outside Hodad’s (popular and has a very small interior)once inside, surrounded by the smell of burgers, fries, onion rings, and beer,I knew everything was gonna be great! Ordered the standard Bacon and Cheddar with a side of “frings” half fries/half onion rings(by the way, one order is enough for the whole table of 5 people). Burger was prepared nicely, very juicy and all orders were cooked properly and served correctly, fries and rings were good as well.
