The Duke of Hamburg (aka the The Guilty Carnivore ) tickles our fancy:
Burger. Ciabatta…always with the ciabatta. No tomatoes, which makes me cry. Pickled onions, honking slice o’white cheddar, and ok fries. At $11, it’s $3 cheaper than their veggie burger. That better be some fucking intense veggie burger.

RareMediumRare finds a winner:
I wanted a burger and thought of the staples downtown - Red Coach, Higgins, Clyde Common, Rialto, but then when I walked outside, it was raining. We decided to awning walk our way down to the Veritable Quandary.
Before arriving, I had only hoped they had a burger, not really sure if they would. They did! The menu only lists it as a burger with cheddar and fries - that's it. Who would have thought that it would be a great frackin' burger.
The bun was almost like a Ciabatta roll but dark. I honestly didn't know what type of roll it was, but it was so so tasty. The cheese on the burger was perfect. Some may think it was too much, but for me it was just right. It encompassed the medium rare chuck of love just right, keeping the juices in. Oh, and the burger was one of the tastiest I have had in awhile. It challenges me to say this, but it may land in my top 5. There, I said it. The burger came with fries which were tasty, yet a little soft. I prefer my fries a little crispier. I did like the garnish of the marinated white onion slice. That was tasty.
