Ok, so I was brave or stupid enough to take on a challenge for the month of September and try and find the best burger in the city. Next month, I am going to have to cut red meat out of my diet. Too much red meat can be bad for your health, it leads to an increase in iron in your body and can lead to heart disease, diabetes, or colonic cancer. All this for a blog, I guess this blog might be short lived.

Ok, I was coming back from Richmond and I decided to stop off at Red Onion burger. They claim to have a nice lean burger and they are right. The lean meat tasted good but the burger as a whole was only ok. However, the fried onions are a nice touch. I would say it tasted like a White Spot burger with out the triple ooo sauce. Now, who wants a White Spot burger without triple ooo sauce? No one. The fries were ok, I got a good batch of small crunchy ones that I liked, but some were hard in the middle. All that said, I think I figured out where this place sits on my ranking. At the end of the month you can see the results of my burger challenge, if I am still alive.

I hear if you eat at inside Red Onion, the pops are bottomless just like Red Robins my hangout when I was 16.

I always thought Red Onion was just okay but mind you I haven't been there since high school which was mad long ago. It was the spot for us private school Westside snots. But alas my taste buds have matured.

Maybe next month can be vegetarian month for you to even out all this red meat eating.

Dude try the Cafe Crepe burger, $6.60 for a pretty good burger and fries that tastes like Mcdonalds fries.

You gotta do a Vera's and Splitz post.
