Ok, I signed up as a Citysearch Member just to write this reivew for Prince's, for which was the first time I visited the restaurant. I keep reading and hearing about how wonderful the burgers are at Prince's, so I went for lunch to go try them. I am amazed that this location gets the publicity it does for a burger that does little to impress. It's a normal, plain old burger....absolutely nothing astounishing. I had the ""original Cheeseburger"" appartently the burger that started it all for Prince's... I hade the combo of fries and onion rings, and a root beer to drink. The burger is thin, cooked well done, dressed with the usual tomato, union, mustard, and pickles, on a flat sesame seed bun. I'd rate the burger a 4 or a 5.. nothing exciting at all. The fries were far from exciting, as they are just plain old machine cut fries...and with no special seasoning or any kind. I would rate the fries a 3, as they could use some tips from any old fast food joint for pointers. The onion rings were much better and I would recommend them....a good 7 rating. The root beer was nice because is was very cold and served in a frozen mug.....but the root beer was just normal old root beer....a 7 rating again. If you took good old A&W root beer, put it in the freezer for five minutes, then put in in a mug, you'd have equal to or better root beer. The atmosphere is like a 50's dinner. The price was fine...like $7.50, but I just don't get why people love this place; especially with a Fudruckers next door. Honestly, it's not even fair to Fudruckers to compare Prince's as I don't think Prince's is even near the same quality of a burger as Fudruckers. The meet, the bun, the salad bar (build your own burger style) , and the fries are all 100 times better at Fudruckers. Prince's is special because its been around for a long time, not because of the burger I ate today. AMF Windfern Bowling has a better burger by far...and I'm not joking.
Pros: Atmosphere, cold mugs
Cons: absolutely nothing special for food...maybe the onion rings are an exception.
