Chicago Gyros & Dogs
Our 9th Review
Official Review #9
201 W McMillan St, Cincinnati, OH 45219
We came here for Lunch 1 day, on a tip from a relative that works nearby at a Large company & several of the people there had ordered the Burger & Fries & had highly recommended them, I was a bit skeptical about it being a Gyro place to eat, & then having good Burgers, but I won't discount any Burger Joint, until we try it out.
We had a Variety of 13 Different Burgers to order from!
I ordered a Hamburger $4.00 that came with Lettuce, Tomato, Pickles, Mayo, & Red Onions, on a Sesame Seed Bun, which was Toasted & good.
they did not ask how I wanted it cooked, so right there, I was guessing it came out of a pre-packaged box.
Others ordered the Bacon Cheeseburger $5.00 all got Fries $2.00 with their Burgers.
At this time, no one ordered a Gyro, or the many other items on the menu, like Chili, Slaw & a Variety of Pita's & Salads & other items.
Overall, we would have to rate this Burger a 5.5, because, it does come Frozen, out of a Box, and even though it can, & does make a decent Burger, it's not up there with the Best around, I would compare it to the Toot's Burger, or close to it, the Toasted Sesame seed bun was very good, it had excellent pickles on it, & fresh Tomato & lettuce pieces, which I love the lettuce pieces cut up, like that, on my Burgers, but as far as just the plain ole Burger on the Bun, it could not cut it, on its own, it does need the good bun & other items on it, to bring it up to the final rating we gave it, we all liked the Fries, they were very good, & for a quick & fair priced Lunch, this is a great place to eat, & is located in the heart of Clifton & the U.C. area, it's a great place for Students to go, I probably would not come here again, just for the Burger, as there are way too many other & better options out there, if a good to great Burger is what your after, look more into our list, but I would come here again & eat inside because it is a very clean place, with a nice decor, & several other menu items, I would like to try.
Final Thoughts: Great place for U.C. Students & workers in the area to get a decent burger & fries at a good price, clean place inside if you eat there, & a good variety to the menu, but for a great burger, you must go elsewhere, this one is just average, & it comes out of a pre-packaged box.
Final Rating: 5.5* (Average/Not Bad-Nothing Special)
