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.
