My quest for the best burger in the City of Pittsburgh took me to Bubba’s Gourmet Burghers and Beer…
There was nothing particularly gourmet about the burgers – or the beer – at Bubba’s. Unfortunately, this burger shop would be more appropriately titled, “Bubba’s-Run-of-the-Mill Burgers”. This particular Friday evening, we strolled into this remote Bridgeville suburb shopping center, with a grumble in our bellies and an eye towards a gourmet handcrafted burger. Although the staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, no amount of kindness could make up for Bubba’s campy unauthentic atmosphere and it’s lack-luster, unsatisfying “gourmet” burgers.
The proof is in the pudding, and this particular pudding proved nothing positive. My burger was more or less without flavor. It was served with a heaping pile of undercooked, room temperature fries, an inadequate bun, and toppings that were clearly an afterthought to the burger process. The ideas behind the burgers at Bubba’s are not bad; the menu presents creative options featuring sauces, spices, and garnishes, everything is served made to order, and the french-fries are prepared as medley of sweet and savory, but the execution is severely lacking. My burger was over cooked, my bun fell apart as I was eating it, and I left this dinner dissatisfied.
Sorry to report, I do not intend to return to this suburban catastrophe.
