“Great Burger, Noisy and Expensive”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

I just got back home from my visit to the Zinburger and I got to say the Zinburger lives up to the "Burger Joint" category. It has a bunch of different burgers that are every day and a few that are specials. I ordered my burger and honestly it was one of the best burgers I've had. The buns are really good and soft and the burger itself is great. We were served relatively quickly for the amount of people there so I have no complaints.
One problem here is that the food is outrageously expensive. It cost me $11.00 to get a "Plain and Simple" burger with cheese. The 3 of us together had to spend a total of $54.00. The food is great but the price is way too much.
Second problem was that the same waitress spilled or dropped something to two different families on our left and right. The ones on the left got a bit of a water bath and the ones on the right got a lettuce shower... But the waitress cleaned up the mess immediately.
Overall, the place is good to eat if you got money to spend and if you like a good burger. The place is clean and the waitresses are quite friendly.

“Great Burgers, Nice Wines/Beers”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

Busy and noisy atmosphere which makes it feel like a very lively upbeat place. Simple menu. One side has drinks - wines, beers, & mixed drinks. The other has burgers, salads, and shakes/floats. The burgers and salads were delicious. I really enjoyed the Ahi Burger. Fries were also great.

“Great burger, cheap wine!”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Went with a few friends on I think a Wednesday when they had half priced wine bottles. I had a burger that had bacon, cheese, and some other stuff and it was actually really good. Big, too. It's a bit noisy in there, very open feel, but it didn't make it that difficult to have a conversation. Great place for a date.

“Great variety of burgers!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We had a great time and tried different burgers such as the kobe beef, turkey, veggie, and ahi tuna. They were all very tasty and cooked to order. The bacon bloody mary was especially delicious as was the shake! Definitely make a reservation or have somewhere to shop while you are waiting.
