I’ve read some really bad reviews about the Bad Boy Burger Bar, and prior to coming here, I was expecting a disappointing meal. The decor here is basic, slightly modern, kind of funky and a bit cluttered. To me, this place was like a new age Greek take away joint that offered gourmet burgers.
Tonight, I ordered the Bad Boy AB. The serving size was quite substantial and could have easily fed two people. The lamb was well marinated and tasty, however, there were a few morsels that were over cooked.
The chips were nice and chunky, and cooked to perfection; nice and crunchy on the outside, and soft and fluffy on the inside. Just the right amount of salt was added to the chips. The garlic sauce was of a nice consistency, and was what you would expect from a Greek establishment.
The staff here were really friendly and the service was pretty good. The atmosphere was relaxed, even with a steady stream of customers flowing in while we were there. We could smell the exhaust fumes from the outside traffic, so this was a bit of a problem.
The pricing of their burgers is on par with their competitors, however, their AB’s were more expensive. They also only provide two sauces with their AB which is a shortfall from their competitors. The standard AB should come with three sauces, and the inclusion of chili sauce is a must. There was no kick in my AB when there really should have been.
I was told that their Get Tzatziki With It burger was really good, and my meal wasn’t too bad, even though it was missing a critical element. It’s certainly not as bad as some reviews make it out to be. I would certainly visit this place again.
