John's is tucked away between a used car lot and a coin-op car wash and serves up legit old-fashioned char-grilled burgers- At John's the ingredients are fresh, the burgers are juicy and walking through the doors make you feel like you've stepped back in time.
The Double Super Burger ($7.45) is just one of the many burger creations on the menu. The two charbroiled patties (2/3lbs) were extremely moist and left a puddle in the plate as I ate it. The charring brought out just enough BBQ smokiness and the 2 slices of American coated the burger like a yellow melty jacket. A nicely toasted bun, lettuce, tomato, pickle, onion and mayo topped it all off. A great burger that will satisfy any meat craving- I recommend that you should try John's out!
Today's quest for burger perfection took me to Mission Burger in the Mission district of Fremont, CA. Located in a strip mall beside a used car lot and sharing a building with a pretty decent Mexican place, you'll easily miss this place unless you are looking for it.
The menu consists of hotdogs, sausage on a bun, burgers and fries- all with very reasonable pricing. Please note that they don't take credit cards (not sure about debit cards) and they offer outdoor seating only so make sure to plan around the weather.
Double Cheeseburger at Mission Burger
I ordered the Double Cheeseburger ($5.29) and it came cooked to medium well topped with american and what looked to be white american cheese served on a toasted hoagie roll- which made it more like a cheeseburger sub sandwich than your typical round burger- a different approach for sure. The beef patties were fairly juicy with good bbq flavor from being char-grilled over an open flame. Good beef flavor, a bit of crumble and lettuce, onion, tomato, mustard mayo to balance it all out- Not bad at all and worth a trip if you are in the area.
