Apparently, there exists a celebrity chef named Michael Symon who started a chain of “industrial-chic” burger spots after a successful run on Iron Chef. Never heard of him. But I have heard of spiked milkshakes, so after learning they were being served at the newest B Spot location on the north side of Indy, I made a trip to the Ironworks building to try them out.
Moral of the story? Don’t go.
B Spot offers “gourmet” burgers, but the toppings are nothing new, unless eggs, BBQ sauce, and chorizo suddenly became gourmet while I was on Christmas vacation.
And that’s all they serve! Like you better like burgers or you’re left with a couple salad options or a chicken sandwich. And the boozy milkshakes? You get 1 oz liquor compared to the 20 oz milkshake, so the taste is long lost in chocolate foam.
My friend and I split the “Fun Guy” burger with a side of Lola fries (I never trust a place where you have to order fries separately) and I tried the Seasonal Shake, which I think was chocolate peppermint.
Burger restaurants seem to be a dime a dozen with ever increasing attention to detail and introduction to new flavors, but this one was a step backward into boring land. Add slow service to a bland environment and you get my recommendation to head to Five Guys instead for a decent burger. So long, fancy chef!
Anyone else checked out B Spot yet?
