Bobby's Burger Palace: University City Review

Bobby's Burger Palace in Cherry Hill hit the spot for me. Perfect for the Cherry Hill Mall food scene and the location featured simple Americana burgers done right. So after waiting almost an hour for a table at The Fat Ham (they did away with reservations!), the GF and I decided to grab a bite at the Bobby's Burger Palace in University City so we could make a movie time.

It seems perfect for the Drexel-Penn crowd, burgers, fries, and onion rings for the college crowd. Makes sense! 

Classic Burger [$7.95]
American cheese, lettuce, tomato, red onion

The GF went with the classic. The sesame seeded bun housed a burger that wasn't well-seasoned however. And even worse? The accompanying pickle. It had the texture of tofu, which is to say there was no texture. Sad.

New Mexico Burger [$7.95]
Queso, roasted green chiles, pickled red onions

I went with the New Mexico, which was also surprisingly flavorless. I expected more acidity from the pickled red onions and some depth from the chilies. The medium rare burger was cooked to temperature, but again no seasoning. And in case you were wondering - my pickle was long past as well.

Half and Half [$4.50]
Onion rings, sweet potato fries

We went with the sweet potato fries and onion rings for our half and half order. The onion rings were great, though at only two, it was a lonely pair. The sweet potato fries were crisp and well-seasoned fortunately. I didn't understand why honey mustard came with the order though.

Not to completely poo poo on the experience, but the milkshake was fairly standard. The undertones of whiskey were there, however slight. The milkshake was smooth, with the sweetness of the caramel coming through with each sip. 

Overall this location could do better in terms of seasoning and certainly with taking care to ensure that their ingredients are up to snuff. I don't want anyone to think I'm some pickle police, but they should not disintegrate upon mastication.
