National Burger Month Day 19 - Jimbo's Hamburger Place

This literal hole in the wall has been open for sixty years. They claim to use "the best chopped meat money can buy" which is probably not true in this age of Kobe and other boutique steer but to be fair the beef is of good quality. Griddled and served rare as ordered the patty was juicy but lacked seasoning, this was somewhat remedied by a sprinkle of salt but it is better to season during cooking. In any event the bun was nicely toasted, the cheese thoroughly melted a the burgers exterior well browned but not really charred.

A decent, perfectly servicable hamburger but probably not worth traveling too far for since there are so many other notable burgers in the area such as Goodburger and PJ Clarkes. Still, if you live on the block and want a quick bite this place is perfect.
