I’m always on the search for the best burger in Iloilo City. I’ve tried some beef patties, or what was passing for beef, on our island province of Guimaras, but have always come away with more bun than actual meat. Pitstop in Guimaras, has one of the worst burgers (and pizzas) I have ever tasted so I have to take a motorized banca boat to travel to Panay Island for some real hamburger havens.
I’m a big eater, but there was no way I was even going to attempt the Tombstone Challenge. I went to the Major League section of the menu and picked a Maverick Burger, a half-pound patty with deep-fried bacon while my asawa ordered a Breakfast Burger, a half-pound of beef topped with an egg and bacon.
Both burgers were good but my deep-fried bacon was a disappoint while my spouse’s bacon wasn’t crispy so she handed it to me. I happily gulped it down.
It took a while for a server to come over to us, though there were at least two waiters and waitresses standing around. The place was extremely noisy with speakers loudly blaring music I didn’t recognize, though I hardly keep up with whatever is popular nowadays anyway.
But as noted, the burgers, fries and lemonade were good (couldn’t order soft drinks) but the extreme noise would keep us away from another visit. Too bad. The hamburgers there definitely rank as one of the best burgers in Iloilo City but this crusty old American expat in the Philippines just can’t handle the noise.
