Masala Veg Cheese Burger at Burger Xpress
We've been driving past for three years and finally ventured in. A little hole-in-the-wall, they are all-vegetarian and serve only four burgers (sandwiches and pizza make up the rest of the menu). We opted for a Masala Veg Cheese Burger (Rs 55) and the single staff sauntered into the little black kitchen. Our patty was fried in a wok and the burger came wrapped in tissue paper. It was too bready a bun with lots of ketchup and a negligible touch of
mayonnaise but still, a respectable patty. The cheese was totally forgotten. They do offer a slightly better burger than some other burger joints of repute.

Mac N Cheese Bomb at Burgs
A high-end burger joint with 16 burgers on the menu, including beef, pork and unusual veg options. We tried a Mac N Cheese Bomb (Rs 180), literally a macaroni and cheese patty bread-crumbed and deliciously oozing. Among the non-veg options, we gave the Barbeque Lamb (Rs 179) a try. It was a crisp patty but with a sauce that didn't match. A good option for pre or post movie burgers. Do give their shakes as try; we highly recommend the Burnt Caramel.

If only they would have stayed true and improved upon their core concept of eggs converted into Stufflettes, they would have been quite a hit. Unfortunately, they now do all sorts of veggie and chicken burgers and not too well. While the Spanish Stufflette (Rs 49), a burger with potatoes in an egg omelette is quite alright, their Popeye Tikki, Mexican Roll and more are a sad deal.
At: BanerStay away from: Burger Barn
Our fourth time here and they've been consistently bad. We tried a Barn Mexicana Burger (Rs 90) - it came in its signature big bun, layered with a ketchup mix, a few tortilla chips and a chicken patty that was under-cooked. As we attempted to swallow, we saw a staff member touching the soles of his feet and touching the cutlery. The rest of the burger was rendered inedible.
