Bobby's Burger Palace

It's been awhile since I have had an adventure with my friend Teddy (or he decided its been to long since he has been featured on my blog), so we decided to drive into DC for lunch. 
Teddy requested what whatever we ate needed to have meat so I thought of Bobby's Burger Palace because I have heard pretty good things about it and Bobby Flay is awesome.The set up is similar to Shake Shack where you order at the counter but instead of having a buzzer to pick up your food, they bring it to your table which is a lot more convenient. 
I ordered the Dallas Burger $7.75 (Spice Crusted, Coleslaw, Monterey Jack, BBQ Sauce, Pickles) and I was very disappointed. This burger was bland all around-coleslaw had no flavor, non existent spice crust and barely any BBQ. I had to smother it in the sauces on the table (Chipotle Ketchup and the Burger sauce) to give it some flavor/edible. 
Teddy ordered the Bobby Blue Burger $7.75 (Blue Cheese, Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato). He said it wasn't bad, the actually patty was pretty flavorless but the bacon and blue cheese helped give it some oompf. 
The fries were not bad $3, but the dipping sauces really made the fries good. I was a big fan of the Chipotle Ketchup, the Burger Sauces was pretty tasty too. 
The high light of the place were the milkshakes $5. Teddy got Black and White (Vanilla with Chocolate Syrup) and I got Dark Chocolate. Mine was delicious and Teddy enjoyed his. 
This place was a slight disappointment. I was hoping for a flavorful burger (I mean it is Bobby Flay, come on), and while that was extremely lacking I guess I can be happy that it was a good quality burger that was cooked correctly (medium). The milkshakes were awesome though and the fries with dipping sauce made the experience more enjoyable although we were still left with a meh attitude.

  1. I had no idea that Bobby Flay had a burger place but it's sad to hear it's not so great! Although those fries look pretty good, I'm a sucker for fries. :) At least you got to end the meal with something good and filling!
