Punch Burger 137 E. Ohio St.

This place has been opened for a while and has gotten some pretty good reviews. Of course some folks complain about the prices. The burgers they offer are all $6.50, and they are all natural. Whatever that means. Sadly that is about normal for downtown,even for 6 oz.

In addition to some specialty burgers you can pick just what you want from a pretty good list of options.

Pat usually is the more oblique part of the team but this time he was darn near Gabby. He isn’t a big fan of grass-fed beef because he ran into a couple of tough steaks one time,so he views all grass-fed cows with suspicion.

I settled for a cow burger,on a pretzel bun with swiss cheese house made sweet pickles and a side of waffle fries.

I agree with Pat the burger was really good, When we ordered we were asked if we wanted our burger well done or a bit of pink. We both wanted pink and pink is what we got.

The burgers are cooked on a flat top so you get a nice crispness. Marry it with a bit of pink and you get a good little burger. They also do a nice job as pickle makers. A slightly sweet pickle is a great change of pace from the standard dill.

They have a web site that shows the menu, but I don’t think it shows pricing. The burgers are $6.50, cheese $.65 and waffle fries are $2.25 while fries of the sweet potato variety cost $2.75. Oh and they also sell beer and wine. I actually can see myself eating on their little patio this summer. Burgers and beer and conveniently located. Sounds good.

  1. It all looks really good, Benson, and I think the prices are reasonable. I had no idea that grass-fed cows had a tough attitude! 🙂

  2. I don’t eat fast food burgers, so I’m willing to pony up the $$ for a good quality burger. Bun looked nice, waffle fries, looked like pepper jack cheese. Now what did you mean by “no punch”? Like Hawaiian Punch for kindergarteners to drink with their Nilla wafers? I’m confused.

    • That;s Pat. An enigma. I think it was his way to make a joke. Yes he was talking about punch. Hawaiian or otherwise. Don’t be confused Kerby.
      Just grab a nice cold Coke.
