My quest for the best burger in the City of Pittsburgh took me to Burgatory…
Everyone in Pittsburgh chirps incessantly about the burgers at Burgatory. “What yinz need to do is go dahn’ to Burgatory,” they say. Well I went down to Burgatory, and although very good, it failed to rise to expectations. Burgatory is situated in the corner of a strip mall in Aspinwall. and is decorated with fake flames and poor lighting. There were eight in our party, and although we were told the wait would be 60-90 minutes, we were seated within half an hour. The beer and cocktail selection did not disspoint, and the Sriracha wings appetizer was delicous.
I really appreciate the Custom Creation menu. You can pick exactly how you like your burger. I selected: “Hormone Free” Beef; Baguette Bun; Cracked Peppercorn Rub; Horseradish Cheddar Cheese; Grilled Onions; Baby Spinach; and Jalapeños. The burger was served with house made chips, which I love, and it presented very well. The Baguette was the highlight of this burger. Not to crunchy, not to soft, it provided the cradle for a wonderful burger experience. The Jalapeños slightly overpowered the flavor, and unfortunately the Beef, and Cheese were slightly masked. Overall this was a good burger, and I wouldn’t hesitate to come back and try it again.
