Richard orders the Zone Burger ($6.99; 5 oz). "My burger is flavored very nicely...but it is slightly overcooked, a bit beyond medium rare. My bun is the perfect size and it held up well to the burger. I think I should have ordered bacon with this burger...it would have been really good...43/50."
I order the Zone Burger as well. It's fine, but it's more of a medium well than medium rare as I ordered it. It's a bit small for me....It/s fine. 40/50.
"My fries are just the right size," Richard says. "They're crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, seasoned very nicely...they are quite good. And this is a generous amount, too. I'll score these at 9/10. They are very good."
Since the fries are cooked in flour-contaminated oil they are not gluten free, I order a baked potato with butter and sour cream. It's fine. 8/10.
Richard says "Our server comes to our table just often enough. She's taking good care of us even though she's busy. I think she is doing a fine job-she's outgoing, friendly, follows up our requests quickly and got our food to us in a very timely manner. 18/20 for service!"
I also score service at 18/10 and agree with everything Richard has to say.
Regarding ambiance Richard says "It's a sports bar. I can imagine it might be fun to come here to watch a game and eat...there are quite few TVs. I like our booth, it's not too loud...it's comfortable. I'll score ambiance at 8/10."
I also score ambiance at 8/10. It is a sports bar and the food is a bit better than I expected.
"Well, this is a bit of a drive for me, but there is plenty of free parking, so 7/10 for location," Richard says.
It's near the mall, easy in and out, free parking...what's not to like? 8/10 for location.
While we both enjoyed our burgers, we do not think this is the best burger in Columbia.
