Big City's Burgers and Sausages

Big City at SM The Block
Last Saturday, we (Martha & I) worked up an appetite shopping and running errands. That afternoon we were craving for burgers. We came upon Big City, a food joint that serves grilled hotdogs, hamburgers & sausages.

It seemed a nice, little place that sits about 25 people. As the name implies, the setting is pretty urban, bright, and straight-forward. The menu board categorizes their three main items, each with different choices. I decided on a Beddar Cheddar sausage with chilibeef as topping (other toppings include relish and onion). Martha chose the Broiled Burger with cheese and bacon. Each order came with onion rings and a drink. Mustard, mayo, and ketchup placed in big condiment dispensers were available on the counter.

Martha's treat (Burger meal: P145, Sausage meal: P130)
The sausage was tasty and meaty however the chilibeef was sadly untasted as its serving was pretty thin. The accompanying onion rings were also flavorful but there were only four pieces of it. Martha's burger had a juicy and delicious 100% beef patty. Though she said she would have liked more veggies on it instead of the flimsy slice of the lettuce and tomato.

Because the meat were grilled, the place had a bit of a smoky air smell.  I don't know if this was always the case but the order taker/server was by his lonesome. He was unsmiling and you're almost wary to ask him questions (he seemed pretty busy). He thanked us politely as we leave, though.

The burger and sausage were yummy and savory with average serving size but the side orders and general atmosphere could definitely be improved.

Rating: 3/5
