Well whataya’ know, a hip joint called No Name. Who woulda thunk it?

First things first, I must tell you that the server offered me rainbow trout knowing damn well that I was a member of BEU and what the evening was all about (he said he would’ve been remiss if he didn’t mention how pleasant the trout was). F’ that buddy, give me the BEEF!

Oh wait, and how about that surprise classical pianist? What was that all about? Don’t get me wrong, he was very talented (although his banter left a lot to be desired), but for the love of god, the timing of that performance couldn’t have been worse… Maybe it was just me (and Rebecca), but wow, I was absolutely derailed.

Even though I had a server who was hocking trout and had to endure a poorly timed pianist, I enjoyed my burger quite a bit. The meat was cooked to my liking and had a nice char on the outside. Also, the coleslaw topping (while a little messy) was a nice touch. I sprung for the fries as well, and they were on par. All in all, while the value equation is a little off and my other complaints could’ve been expected from a place called No Name, I’ll let the food do the talking here.

Whelp, I’ll leave you with a quote/link from a speech by one of my favorite philosophers.

Anon: This place is amazing!

Liz Rogers: The shiitake mushroom calamari was fantastic!

Brayden: Maybe the best burger I’ve ever had at a BEU, holy crap.

Nick Robelotto: Patty presentation pristinely perfect upon plate. Burger a tad salty, not a dealbreaker. Bubble bass would’ve been upset…there were no pickles.

Patrick Clancy: Wow. That was so good.

Nyiko: Amber is the color of your energy.

Jess Martin: Lovely evening. Thank you.

Jeremy Silver: Rebeefa Rienks knows her way around a burger.

Mayra Cortez: Someone stop me from getting another one.

Ryan M. Carroll: I enjoyed the burger but it tasted quite well done charred. Nevertheless…enjoyed.

Jessica Agranovich: Overall a solid burger. Still is a little pricey but what do you expect! Note: I ordered mine w/o cheese (#health) which is why I’m prob not super stoked.

Casey Newlin: If it weren’t charred crispy it would have been great.

binks: Kudos to Jamin and No Name for bringing one of our largest groups together!! Dan Macken has all the best ideas – must be the hat. This burger was delicious and the service was A++++.

Koichi: They were out of Laphroaig. COME ON.

Tyler Kniep: Impossible burger was literally impossible. It impossibly went in my belly and tasted impossibly delicious.

Candace Meade: I had the Impossible Burger w/a lettuce wrap so basically my thoughts on anything don’t count for crap lol.IMG_0206 IMG_0205 IMG_0204 IMG_0203 IMG_0200 IMG_0199 IMG_0202 IMG_0198 IMG_0212 IMG_0232 IMG_0231 IMG_0230 IMG_0219 IMG_0218 IMG_0215 IMG_0214 IMG_0210 IMG_0208
