If you’ve ever wondered what the hamburger equivalent of a shrug is, look no further.  Hangry Burger now exists to answer that question.

That’s the thing: it’s not a bad burger.  There’s nothing offensive about it, and I didn’t dislike eating it.  But it’s not particularly good.  It’s just… it’s fine (you can’t see me right now, but I’m shrugging pretty hard).

This is going to be a pretty short review, because I honestly don’t have all that much to say about it.  It’s hard to muster up all that much enthusiasm to write about a burger that’s so thoroughly middle-of-the-road.

I ordered the Hangry Burger, which is their no-frills choice, and had it topped with Hangry sauce, pickles, and tomato.

The patty had some colour from the griddle, though it was cooked all the way to well done and a bit dry.  It was also too finely ground, giving it a mealier texture than I’d like — but I’ve certainly had worse.  As for the flavour of the beef?  Remember all that shrugging I was doing earlier?  Yeah, I’m still doing it.

The toppings were fine, though if the Hangry sauce was anything other than plain mayo, I couldn’t taste it.

The bun, too, was fine, though it was clearly too big and dense for the simple single-patty option — the bun-to-patty ratio was way off.  The fact that it was cold and untoasted probably didn’t help.

As for the fries, they looked good, but they were a bit overcooked.  They were vaguely bitter, with a borderline burnt flavour.
