The Skinny: On-The-Bun is a new burger hole in the City of Lomita that flaunts it’s chili toppings and fried jalapenos in a hipster-ish restaurant setting. The storefront that On-The-Bun took over used to be an old neighborhood favorite grease pit, but I only took notice of their “grand opening” since it was right next to the hockey store I was visiting and the minimalistic logo.
The High: I ordered the Chili Cheese Burger, fries, and a drink. The Beef Patty had a nice crust I never really had before on a Burger. The fries were crisp and tasty.
The Low: Not sure if it was from the cheese, chili, or a heavy hand that seasoned the meat, but the burger was way too salty. On sight alone the burger did look yummy, but when I picked up the burger, the bun started to shift and break apart from the rest of the build. The chili didn’t help the ease of eating the burger either, because after each bite into the store-like bun in a bag, the runny grease just started streaming everywhere. The burger did have a nice looking pickle, some fresh red onions, lettuce, and tomato, but they barely served as a texture component. The salt lick effect was just too distracting.
Would you come back again? No, thank you! In fact, I was so dissapointed in that $7.something burger meal, I went to Bristol Farms Market and spent 30 bucks just so I can make my own burger for dinner and my family.
