Prime Cincinnati

Our 72nd Review
Official Review #72


      Prime Cincinnati

                580 Walnut Street  Suite 100 

Cincinnati, Ohio 45202


  513.579.0720


Parking is rough here in the 6th street & walnut st. area, we usually park one street over by wahlburgers & up that next block or with luck you might catch a spot in front of Nada right across the street, parking is $2.50 an hour on the meters, with 1 hour an 12 mins on our meter, we had 17 mins left when done after eating 2 burgers.

I would suggest no matter what time you go, use open table on prime's webpage to get a reservation, it's quick an easy to do.

Update  #2  We made a 3rd trip to Prime today at 1:15pm, it was just as good if not better than the 1st 2 trips, absolutely a delicious, just dive right into it burger.


UPDATE!  MADE A 2nd TRIP TODAY Saturday 7/21/2018 and it was just as good as the 1st trip on Thursday for Burger week, so the review below, still stands for today's visit, nothing changes.
We tried out this excellent place for the 1st time during Cincinnati Burger week, on 7/19/2018,
I actually had never heard of it before, and it's burger had never been mentioned in any other top 10 list I've seen for reviews in town.
This one is normally $11,  so that's a tremendous deal to get to try it out for $5
It was The Jack Burger Prime burger  $11  with rocket arugula, aged Vermont cheddar, Jack Daniel’s infused bacon and onion jam, Berkshire bacon truffle aioli on a brioche bun.
What is Rocket Argula/Arugula or rocket is an edible annual plant in the Brassicaceae family used as a leaf vegetable for its fresh peppery flavor. Other common names include garden rocket, or simply rocket, & eruca

What is Truffle Aoili/Truffles are an extremely rare, aromatic & delicious member of the fungi family. Able to grow only in certain soil & climate conditions, they have an intense, earthy flavor that has long been considered a culinary delicacy. you can enjoy this rare & wonderful ingredient on sandwiches, burgers, as a dip or dolloped onto grilled fish.


Here is Prime Cincinnati's claim,
We proudly serve Certified Angus Beef  The Best Angus Beef Ever Made!

I have eaten a LOT of burgers in my life, and this was hands down, the BEST burger I have ever had. 

The Brioche bun was warm and soft and Brioche is my Favorite type of Burger Bun, but Wahlburgers had the best non Brioche I've ever had, but this one is as good as they come, overall an Excellent Bun, not quite the very best we've ever tasted in a bun, but extremely close, Delities in Maysville, Ky. has one delicious Brioche, just by a slight edge., .
 The aged Vermont cheddar and Jack Daniels infused bacon were a spectacular pairing with a perfectly cooked, juicy beef patty, thick, Looks great with Grill marks on it, it definitely says take a bite now! I would guess it had Salt & Pepper but could not detect any other spices if it had them, this one Melts in you Mouth like butter & very juicy, the bacon was crisp but not hard & had an awesome flavor. 
The Aged Vermont Cheddar was near perfectly melted & had an excellent flavor that added to the overall taste.
This Patty is as good, if not better tasting than any other Burger Patty we've ever tasted, B&A Street Kitchen had one awesome tasting burger patty that came close, but it's texture & freshness taste did not quite match this one, but it was definitely a close 2nd, soft, Juicy & delicious.
All the Toppings & additions, like the onion jam, just added to the overall flavor of the burger, the Bacon was crisp but not hard or tough, had a softer texture to it,  I would love to try their burger with just the brioche bun & the beef Patty, with regular lettuce, tomato, & onion on it, to see how that tastes, maybe sometime I might order one plain to go & make it my own at home, just to test that out.
The Execution & preparation & overall appearance of the Burger, It looks Delicious, can't wait to dive into it, nice fresh looking, the bun sort of had a glistening shine to it, the burger patty looked perfectly grilled with clear grill marks on it, from the nice green Rocket Argula, to the Bacon hanging over it & the perfectly melted cheese, we ordered it well done, cooked to order & that's how it came out.
We also got an appetizer of Deviled eggs and they were PERFECT.  Smooth and creamy with the right amount of salty taste from the bacon and chives.
Also added a side salad and it was excellent also, everything on the salad was crisp & fresh, well prepared.
 I really can't say enough about how wonderful all of the food was. If you have never been to Prime Cincinnati you NEED to go. It is THAT good.
Prime Cincinnati was the general consensus as having the best burger in Cincinnati's Burger week in 2017 & 2018, so they extended their $5 Burger 1 additional week until July 29th, 2018, so we decided to on Friday the 27th.


Overall an extremely tasty burger, that left an awesome aftertaste in your mouth after every bite & even after we got in the car we could still taste the delicious flavors it left us with, I would recommend this Burger to anyone, anytime, even you personally did not rank it as the best ever, you would certainly have to agree it's as good as any or right up in the top 2 or 3.

Final Thoughts:  Absolutely Awesome Burger, the best I've had anywhere in 35 years of Blogging for the best Burger,  also very good Bun, I would eat here again anytime, and we have plans to do so again soon.

Definitely The New  #1 Burger on my List

Final Rating: *9.6 
  ( Extremely Exceptional-Must try it) 





Deviled Eggs were also very Good!

The salad was very Good!
