I’d never been to Krush Burger before. The chain is local to Sacramento and only opened in Davis in the last couple years. I thought it was going to be an American Burger joint but after visiting it seems I was wrong. It’s closer to a fast food place, though one that is trying to look modern and upscale. Lots of exposed concrete, dark wood, and brushed metal. If I had known beforehand I wouldn’t have included it on the list. Too late now!
Patty (15/35) – So small! I somehow missed the whole “mini” part of Krush Burger’s deal until I got my plate. Still, the patty is outsized by the bun and toppings. Medium instead of medium rare, this is becoming a trend. Dry and a little too salty. I think. It was hard to tell see ‘Condiments’ below.
Cheese (6/25) – Just sitting there on the bun. No flavor.
Bun (7/15) – Dry. Has a nice crunchy exterior. Bigger than the patty. No flavor, no moisture.
Toppings (8/15) – Lettuce and tomato were fine. No pickles or onion. A small spot of grilled onions. Those were good but there were hardly any.
Condiments (5/10) – Large dollop of 1000 Islands or Fry Sauce. I think most of those burger’s flavor came from the sauce. No mustard on burger or in the restaurant as far as I could tell?!
Ambiance (5/*) – Sparse, industrial, modern look with overtures to extreme sports & alt culture (skateboards, neon signs, etc.) If you look that look. I thought it was pretty sterile.
Total (46/100) – For less than $10 this isn’t bad. I think I was just disappointed in it not being an actual burger. I got sweet potato tots to go with it and those were good (picture below). For the price it’s a good deal. But, In n’ Out is right there…
