We arrived at max burger restaurant at 1:29pm it was crowded and we was notified that there was a 30 minute wait to be seated. We was hungry where you could hear our stomachs attempting to eat itself. Thank the Lord we was seated no longer than 10 mins later.
Our servers name was CJ which you could tell he was having a long day already based on his demeanor. Nevertheless he was attentive and ready to take our orders.
We ordered two waters with lemon and one Coffee Hazelnut Milkshake we agreed to share. An attempt to watch our waistline is a must since our restaurant endeavors has picked up in the recent months.
The Mrs decided to order the Inside Out 8 ounce burger and as for myself I had the BlackJack burger. The Inside Out comes with Gorgonzola stuffed, with applewood smoked bacon, grilled onions, arugula on a artisan roll. The blackjack is a blackened burger with jalapeño jack cheese, roasted green chilies, guacamole, honey-chipotle onions on an artisan roll also.
The burgers has arrived and the looked cooked to perfection. A minor set back, I received the burger without a side of bacon as I requested, but CJ corrected the kitchens error right away. The burgers was moist and all the toppings was in place. The wife is was very please with her Burger. The beef is seasoned within means not flavorless and the bun was soft almost melted in your mouth. My burger the BlackJack was good as well, but I felt that there was something missing even though all the ingredients was there. It was missing the kick, that spicy flare that you would expect from jalapeño cheese or the chipotle onions. It was rather on the sweet side oppose to spicy. Based on that I would have to drop the rating on my experience. Other than that it was still mouth watering good.
Conclusion: Looking for a family style burger joint and your in the greater Hartford area Max Burger should be on the list of restaurants that you must try. Max Burger receives a 4 star rating.
