|The Paramount Burger|
|Cute little atmosphere|
I wouldn't consider this burger a total wash, after all, it was cheap (clocking in at just $11 including bacon, mushroom and caramelized onions to top my burger off and a side of fries). The size was exceptional as well, with the patty totally fitting into the arms of a soft, fresh and lightly toasted bun. I also really enjoyed the thin pickle slices that adorned my burger and provided a subtle tang to each burger bite.
Now for the negatives. Right off the bat, the cheese wasn't melted. Instead, a sad and sweaty piece of yellow cheese laid on top of my little pile of mushrooms and caramelized onions. In my book, not melted cheese is a major offense! Moving away from that, the meat itself was overcooked (even though no temperature preference was requested by the cafeteria style kitchen) and it lacked flavor, juiciness and I found it to also have an off-putting gristly texture. In addition to that, the fries were boring and lacked crispness.
