Flavor of the Week: Cheeburger Cheeburger

7003 Three Chopt Road

Having never been to a Cheeburger Cheeburger chain, I wanted to see how it compared to Five Guys and Carytown Burger. And I must say I wasn't impressed. The burger was a little dry and was definitely too hard to eat. I think the bun was the main problem, or maybe the slice of onion nearly as large as the patty?

With one of the fastest turnarounds I've ever seen, Cheeburger Cheeburger appeared in The Village Shopping Center to replace Smoothie King. The restaurant has a diner-like feel and a menu to follow, with lots of shakes, melts, wraps and, of course, the Cheeburger.

Looking past the shiny silver walls and bright lights, I realized I missed Five Guys 'peanut shell covered floor and their simple greasy burgers and Cajun spiced fries. Speaking of spices, I don't understand the "special seasoning" they provide at the table for the fries, it just tasted like pepper to me.

Some say they like Cheeburgers' variety of toppings and other menu items. I say, go to Carytown Burger. They have a wider menu and a better burger.

I am embarrassed to say that I didn't get a milkshake while I was at Cheeburger, and this is an area in which I am hopeful. I would like to mix my own and with 378,000 options it has to be good!

Another thing that would draw me back is my competitive side and their one-pound burger eating challenge. You call that a challenge? But, I think I'll just do it elsewhere, take a picture of myself and put it on their wall.
