So after seeing Burger Me on Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives, and having Chef Guy Fieri rave about it, we took a drive up to Truckee yesterday to see some friends and give it a try.
I am sad to report we were disappointed. Although having been on DDD has helped business which has created long lines for ordering, the service was slow and the food was only so-so. The food had little flavor and was definitely not worth the wait. The fires were flavorless, the onion rings greasy and the sandwiches lacked much flavor. Nothing memorable.
It's a place where you stand in line to order, then if you are lucky, grab a table and wait for your name to be called to go pick up your food. The place is cramped, getting drinks from the self-serve bar was slow and crowded. There are not enough tables and the ones outside had little or no shade and it was extremely hot.
I will say the staff was friendly and although rushed, they were smiling. And yes, they did clean tables between guests. There were lots of families there and even a group from the Tahoe Fire crew on their way back to Tahoe from Quincy after spending 2 weeks helping on a wildfire. (God bless 'em!)
But, we will not be going back there again.
