Arrow TUE OCT 21: Ray's Hell Burger - October 15, 2008, 04:24 PM

Next Tuesday night - time TBD but most likely 6pm or 7pm


Ray's Hell-Burger
1713 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 222
09
703-841-0001

There's still no sign out front. But fans of the most publicly dissected hamburger around know exactly where to go to get their fix: this Arlington storefront with not much more than some B horror film posters and a bunch of wooden tables to dress it. Michael Landrum, the owner of Ray's the Steaks in the same block and Ray's the Classics in Silver Spring, distinguishes his new place from the pack with a 10-ounce whopper of a sandwich built from freshly ground, hand-trimmed beef and his usual generosity: Sides of watermelon and corn on the cob are built into even the basic $6.95 hamburger, and a number of toppings -- mushrooms, peppers -- are free.

A guy can spend upwards of $17.50 on the signature attraction, but choices such as "The Burger of Seville," which packs in foie gras, bordelaise sauce and (chef, you must be joking!) white truffle oil, have nothing on the simpler models.

Customers place their orders at a counter overlooking the big grill, then listen for their names to be called. The strongest brew available is root beer, but it's great, and while you might wish for french fries, Hell-Burger recently began offering sides of chunky potato salad and creamy coleslaw. The downside? We appreciate the fact that it's toasted, but the brioche bun tends to fall apart under the weight and juice of the hamburger. Otherwise, Landrum has thought of everything. Next to the condiments on your table is a big roll of paper towels.

I ate there on Sunday. Burger was damn good but the bun sucked. A better bun would make them great, but they're still pretty damn good.

Ate there this past weekend and I completely agree. I'd give it a 3.5 out of 5.

Men are qualified for civil liberties in exact proportion to their disposition to put moral chains upon their appetites: in proportion as their love of justice is above their rapacity...Society cannot exist, unless a controlling power upon will and appetite be placed somewhere; and the less of it there is within, the more there must be without. It is ordained in the eternal constitution of things, that men of intemperate minds cannot be free. Their passions forge their fetters. ~Edmund Burke, Political Theorist and Philosopher

Cliff, thanks for setting this up! The burger was great!
Dans, thanks for showing up as well!

So, to everyone else: the burgers were made from steak - very lean, very yummy! You get a choice of how it's cooked (pepper crusted was the option I went with), a choice of probably 30 cheeses, and a choice of gourmet toppings. I decided to go for a well-done burger with guacamole and bacon.
After hearing from the people on here that the buns couldn't hold in the burger, and seeing Cliff try to eat his, I decided to use a fork and knife. Either way, the thing was delicious! The place was packed and we had an oggling contest with some woman over who would get the next table (ha ha!) but gave up and ended up standing at a bar-type table.
After dinner, we wandered down to the coffee shop and chit chatted.
Good times!! Thanks again, everyone, for coming!
