Sandwiches in Review: The Best Cheeseburger on the Planet?

September 5, 2011

On a recent trip to Big Boy, I discovered something of interest.  Like many chains, they have a new line of higher quality, more expensive “restaurant style” burgers.  What sets theirs apart, however, is the presence of a cheeseburger called “The Best Cheeseburger on the Planet.”  Friends, that is a bold claim to make.  I don’t know how anyone would even be in the position to make that call, but it means at the very least that it would be the best cheeseburger I had ever tasted in my entire life.  I had to give it a try.

Do your worst, old man!!

Unfortunately, it was not the best cheeseburger I had ever had, and thus probably not the best cheeseburger on the planet.  There was nothing wrong with it, per se.  It had a decent patty, Cheddar cheese, red onion, lettuce, tomato, mayo, the usual fare.  There just wasn’t much outstanding about it.  It was better than most higher-end fast food burgers, but there are burgers I’ve reviewed on this very blog I would rank higher than it.  Part of it has to be the lack of imagination.  Usual deluxe toppings are fine, but when you’re going for the title of “Best on the Planet” you need to think outside the box a little bit.

All in all though, it was a pretty good cheeseburger.  It cost around $7 I believe, and it was a filling, satisfying meal.  I’d recommend it as a cheeseburger in general.  It’s just that if you give a sandwich the oddly specific title of “The Best Cheeseburger on the Planet”, you’d better be able to back it up.
