Beth's Burger Bar

Beths burger

Finally had a chance to stop by Beth’s Burger Bar in downtown Orlando the other day, and found it to be a fairly underwhelming experience.

As is becoming the predominant style among new restaurants, Beth’s is a fast casual concept wherein guests order at the counter and then take a seat to wait for a staff member to deliver the food.

Ordering is a three step process. You must first decide on the patty -- single, double, triple, veggie or chicken. Then you choose toppings -- cheese, sauce, and other usual accouterments, such as lettuce, tomatoe and onions. And then a side item, if desired, of “classic” fries, sweet potato fries, chips or deep fried pickles, called frickles.

A humorless young woman took my order: single patty, swiss cheese, classic fries. To my request to have the burger prepared medium-rare, she responded, “They come out medium anyway,” as if that were the same thing. It’s not, of course.

The same unsmiling woman was assigned to deliver my order, and she did so by walking through the dining area auctioning it off to the first person who would answer to my name, this even though all previous orders had already been delivered, only two other orders were placed after mine, and I was the only single diner among them, sitting alone in a restaurant that was largely empty.

The burger was largely forgettable, though I liked the toastiness of the bun. The meat, however, was dry, as overcooked meat tends to be. The fries were above average.

Beths interiorBBB occupies a space on Washington Street east of Orange Avenue, so it should do well with the late night drinking crowd.

Beth’s Burger Bar is at 24 E. Washington St., Orlando. It is open for lunch and dinner daily, late nights Wednesday through Saturday. Here’s a link to bethsburgerbar.com. Prices range from $3.49 for a single to $8.49 for a triple, with some toppings such as cheese and mushrooms extra. The phone number is 407-650-4950.

I ate there a couple of weeks ago, and thought it was decent, not great, when I went service was friendly. I was also pleased ro find a place downtown at 1am, after a concert serving something other than pizza, hot dogs, and sausage. (The Fifth's kitchen closes at 10:30 I believe, and rusty spoon at 10, and I wasn't driving down to Johnny's). I audio went with the Sweet Potato Fries, and they were done of the beyter sweet potato fries I've had, a good mix of the sweet and salty.
