Great milkshakes at Z-Burger, but not so good onion rings

I was feeling “blah” and totally bored (Dog Days of Summer?) so Dad drove me down to White Marsh and we went to Z-Burger.

Z-Burger is like a Five Guys or a Gino’s or a In-N-Out. I think Z-Burger is a local chain (DC-Batimore area) with just a few restaurants. But it’s kinda the same as the others.

Dad says these places are still “fast food” but a little bit fancier and with slightly better ingredients. Then he usually complains about how much they cost! Hey, Dad… thats why I let YOU pay 🙂

I ordered a single cheeseburger with lettuce and tomato. Side order of half fries, half onion rings. And a strawberry milk shake.

The burger was OK. Not great. Not awful. Just average. I would award it a score of 5.5 out of 10.

The fries were good. They were nice and crispy. The onion rings… yuck… not so good! They had too much batter. I threw most of them away because they were really not good to eat.

The milkshake was made with ice cream and this is something that Z-Burger does really well. We sometime stop here just to get milkshakes. You might have to wait a long time on a hot day, but they are GOOD!

I would recommend Z-Burger if you are shopping in the White Marsh area. The burgers are OK. But don’t get the onion rings.

Double Chipotle Burgers at the Double T Diner

We went to the Double T Diner in Bel Air for a quick dinner. Going to a diner is great because everybody can order whatever they want. Breakfast at 6PM? Yep! Soup at 6AM? Yep! Whatever you want 24 hours a day!

There are a bunch of Double T’s around the area. Bel Air is our local. I don’t like the one at White Marsh so much (I gave their “bacon cheeseburger deluxe” only 4 out of 10), but I do like the one outside of Frederick (because it’s close to the Monocacy battlefield). Dad says he’s been to the one at Perry Hall and Ellicot City. He hasn’t taken me to those yet.

The daily special at Bel Air was “2 chipotle cheeseburgers and fries” for $6.99. Yeah, baby! Only $6.99. You can’t beat a hamburger deal like that!

Two chipotle burgers and an order of fries.

This is a horrible picture taken with Mom’s phone. My iPod takes better pics, but I’d left it in the car. The burgers tasted better than they look in this picture!

The chipotle sauce seemed to be a homemade mixture of mayonnaise, ketchup and chipotle sauce. It was pretty tasty. You could make it at home. It reminded me of my secret recipe El Paso sauce (secret recipe available for $5).

The burger patties were average quality. They were definitely cooked better than the burger I had at White Marsh! Congrats, Bel Air. You should teach those guys in Baltimore County how to cook.

What made the burgers better than just average was the chipotle sauce. It made the burgers zesty and zingy. Not crazy hot… just flavorsome.

I award this burger a score of 5.5 out of 10. The sauce made all the difference and I am going to try to make some at home.
