One Man Band is an all-american diner with “one man” doing all the cooking, order taking, checkout and everything in between. Â Their most popular burger is the All-American so we gave it a try and here’s our One Man Band All-American burger review. Â The surprising thing about today’s burger adventure was that it wasn’t one man. Â We quickly noticed a lady helping clean up the tables, dishes and offering occasional refills. Â I’m not usually against good service but it did take a little bit away from the notion that this was a One Man Band. Â The burger menu covered blue cheese burgers to swiss, cheddar burgers on rye to Hawaiian burgers and everything in between but still, I can see why the All-American was the most popular. Â We’ll call her “old reliable”.
I was especially excited to add a fried egg for $.65 which as I’ve said before will make any burger better. Â The lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and onions were very fresh and flavorful. Â They were the perfect size and thickness for the burger so credit to the chef on the condiments. Â The bun was also nicely toasted and not only lasted the entire meal but tasted great. Â The All-American cheeseburger at One Man Band does come with cheese and bacon as well and this bacon was as close to perfect as I’ve had in a while. Â It was relatively thin but extremely flavorful and the perfect bacon burger texture (crunchy and chewy at the same time). Â Now for the beef patty, average. Â It wasn’t bad but wasn’t mouth watering worthy. Â The condiments helped but the patty could have used some seasoning or something to make it special. Â Overall the One Man Band burger is another reliably good burger that isn’t worth a special drive just to eat it, but won’t disappoint you if you’re in the neighborhood and looking for a burger.Â The fries were much like the burger as far as average goes. Â They were the thick cut (my personal favorite) but the sporadic seasoning and relative “plainness” made the fry sauce a necessity and made the fries just as reliable but not outstanding as the burger.
In a nutshell, there’s a reason one-man bands are never at the top of the iTunes music list. Â The burger and fries combo ends up at $8ish with a drink and was a filling lunch but nothing to drive out of your way for. Â If you’re hungry for a mean breakfast, I’d recommend the breakfasts over the burger anytime.
