G Burger

This is my first time at G Burger and the item that stood out on the menu was "The G Burger" ($15): hamburger ($5) with a choice of any extra toppings and cheese ($1). Thus, to break even, you'd have to order at least nine dollars worth of extra toppings. As listed on the menu, getting all the possible toppings is a value of fifteen and a half dollars. In the end, The G Burger is just a novelty.

As such, I got a hamburger ($5) with teriyaki glazed onions ($.5), grilled fresh pineapple ($1), and avocado ($1). While tasty, an avocado (~$1) teriyaki burger ($2.5) with pineapple ($.75) at Fuji's Famous Burger is just as delicious, if not better, for a fraction of the cost.

Of course, Fuji's Famous Burger doesn't have as many choices in toppings as G Burger. On that front, it might be more appropriate to compare G Burger to Five Guys, which has a wide selection of both toppings and sauces, at no extra cost.

Ultimately, I find the quality and options at G Burger are top-notched, but I dislike the steep prices. At these prices, I might as well go to Red Robin Gourmet Burgers or Slater's 50/50.

As a side note, my friends and I split an order of sweet potato fries and an order of G Style fries. The sweet potato fries were good and the G Style fries were delicious. The G Style fries are similar to the animal fries from In-N-Out Burger, except the fries themselves are crispy, which makes me like them more. 8:44PM PT

Also, I'm generally not picky about where to sit, but the Fountain Valley location was a bit chilly and most of the good spots were filled.
