We will continue the hunt for the Best Burgers in the Cincinnati and Northern. Kentucky areas, and will also include places when we travel and do it in the Tradition of the old Cincinnati Burger Guys, they are the ones we patterned this site after, they had a hugely popular burger blog in the early to mid-2000's.!
We went to the Landen Location in Cincinnati, it is 1 of 4 Locations in town, with 4 Adults & 4 kids, I tried, The Mac Burger, $8.49 with Lettuce, Tomato, Onion & Pickles, with Waffle Fries on a Brioche Bun.
They have 4 other types of Burgers, on the Menu, it's 8oz. of All Beef Burger, To start with, the Burger Looked awesome, one of the best presentations of a Burger I've seen anywhere, I love a good Brioche Bun, and only Delites in Maysville, Ky. has a great Brioche bun, but I have finally found another awesome bun on a Burger, the toppings, Lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles were all fresh and tasted great, the biggest problem with this burger, was the Beef, it tasted pretty good, but that's it, just pretty good, not great, not awesome, it did not match the flavor of the great Bun and toppings, at 1st I thought it tasted like a Frozen Pre-Made Patty out of a box, but they claim it's real Beef, so I will go with it, I put on salt & pepper, still did not improve it, so that keeps it from making the top 10 on our burger blog, the Waffle fries were very good, I tried some of my Wifes Jumbo Wings, and they are awesome, they tasted great, she got the Mild Hot sauce, and it was just about the best Mild Hot sauce we've had anywhere, we asked to taste the Spicy Garlic and I really liked it, but Mild Garlic or Garlic Parmesan are my favorites, but they had neither, but this SPicy Garlic was very good, My son's both had the chicken Quesadilla's and they said those were excellent also, the kids got Pizza and I tried a piece and I would have eaten that myself, so I have to say their Pizza is very good also, I took half my Burger home and really spiced it up with some of my favorite burger spices and it still barely helped the burger, it's not a bad piece of Beef, just a bit more on the plain tasting side, if they could come up with a really good flavorful meat, they would have one of the best burgers in town, the Server, he was AWFUL< TERRIBLE, nice but just plain BAD, first off he carried to much food to the table and dropped my Wifes little plastic container of Dressing onto the table and it splattered all over her and the tables are metal with holes all over them, and the dressing dripped through onto her Jeans, and he did not even get her a towel or anything or offer to help her clean up, we had to clean it up, then she had stained clothes from the oily dressing, she had goto the event we went to after we ate, he took too long to return for refills and after spilling the dressing, seemed timid about coming back and when he did barely talked to us, so I always leave a good tip for good service, but this service was terrible, so not a lot of tipping, for my wife and I, 1 Burger with Waffle fries and 12 Wings, and she got a side salad, was $25.05 my burger seemed to taste a little better after I heated it up in the little oven and added more spices, but not much more, and the Wings still were great, so next time, it's the Wings for both of us or a Quesadilla. Also, her salad for $2.99 was very good. the atmosphere of the place, a nice looking clean sports bar, with Sand Volleyball outside, I would return here anytime, I might try cheese & bacon on my Burger if I ever got another on to try to get more flavor into it.
Take some advice from a WING LOVER< ADD MILD GARLIC FLAVOR AND PARMESAN GARLIC FOR YOUR WINGS< EVERYONE DOES NOT LIKE HOT & OR SPICY SAUCES.
Final Thoughts: Excellent Bun and toppings, very good Waffle Fries, Awesome Wings, nice clean Sports Bar, terrible Waiter, I would eat here again anytime, but won't waste my time on the Burger, I would order WINGS. Too many other Great Burgers in Town to waste money on this one, The Excellent Bun is wasted on a Plain Burger that if it is all Beef, tastes like a frozen Pre-made non-beef patty.
