Summary of Review

Urban Burgess sells beer and burgers. Not much more. A limited offering of burgers with the usual ingredients. Décor is a miss. So is the bright, laminated menu. But the saving grace is that the burger was tasty. As was the beer.

Urban Burgess serves burgers. That’s it. Nothing else. Well … let me amend that. They apparently have a chicken sandwich on a bun that they call a burger, that of course isn’t, since it’s not made with ground beef.

Oh. And they server beer and cocktails, too.

There are a bunch of brightly painted murals on the walls inside. That is, assuming you can call black and white, “bright”. The tables, chairs and stools are a collection of mismatched items. This place clearly won’t win any design awards.

That said, it would be perfectly acceptable at night when the sun goes down, after a couple of pints of ale.

I chose to eat my burger out front at one of the tables on the sidewalk, which was a pleasant experience. I was able to watch all the people milling around at the steakhouse across the street. And the graphics on the wall outside the bar are better than those indoors.

The menu is a cheesy laminated piece of cardboard with bright photos of the burgers that make them appear as if they’re made from plastic. And rather than print new menus every time the prices change, they put little white labels over the old prices with new penned-in prices. Tacky. But the saving grace was that I was actually charged the price they penciled in.

I’m an adventurer and despite all these minor obstacles, I decided to order the UrbanDaft. Basically, that’s a burger with 140 grams of ground-beef with bacon and blue-cheese. Now, I have to say that this is the funkiest looking burger I’ve experienced in Buenos Aires.

As you can see from the photo in the slideshow, it’s got a skinny bun and a big, fat meat patty. It looks like a cooking adventure gone awry. But after you get past the initial shock of how odd it looks, and take a bite, the result is a burger that’s actually quite delicious.

It was juicy. The bacon was crisp. The blue-cheese was mild and flavorful but not overly funky. And that skinny bun actually held it all together. It was a very good burger. A better burger than anywhere in the immediate neighborhood.

Which only goes to prove that “looks can be deceiving”.
