BURGERGUYZ: Menches Brothers Restaurant, Green, OH


The search for Akron’s best burger

Menches Brothers

By Don Johnson

DSC_6798The Akron-Canton Burgerguyz paid a visit to Menches Brothers in Green which is a few minutes south of Akron just off of I-77.  Menches Brothers has had several of their 50 burgers ranked in Akron’s National Burger Festival.  But, it appears that they use the term “burger” loosely, as some of their 50 selections had what we would call “non-burger” items which included pulled pork.  We feel that, just because it comes on a bun, it isn’t automatically qualified to be a burger.  Anyway, we chose “real” burgers; that is, ones that featured hand shaped beef patties.  The burger sizes ranged from 1/3 to ½ lb.

The burgers sampled at this visit included:

The Menches 1000

Number 10 – Menches 1000 : A beef hamburger with “Melted American cheese, onion, lettuce, pickle, & creamy Thousand Island dressing”. It is further captioned on their menu as “The Big What??”.

The Crispy Onion Burger

Number 16 – The Crispy Onion Burger – “Crispy fried onions, Wisconsin Cheddar, smoked bacon, and our very own Big Mench Sauce”.

The Bobbalouie

Number 21 – The Bobbalouie – A “double burger topped with American and Cheddar, fresh sautéed mushrooms and onion, smoked bacon, & our Big Mench Sauce”.  The Bobbalouie was the #1 burger at the 2006 Akron Burger Festival.

Our service was friendly and unhurried.  The unhurriedness occasionally seemed to turn into long waits.  Our orders were taken and accurately prepared.  However, none of us were asked how we preferred the doneness of the meat.  Our burgers arrived well done and somewhat dry.

The presentation was average; wax paper lined plastic baskets with the hamburgers dressed and wearing their crowns.  Everybody agreed that the bun was solid and held up to the last bite.  However, we felt that the bun was too tall for the single burger but decent for the double burgered Bobbaloui.

Nobody was really impressed with their toppings.  The Menches 1000, purporting to be a “Big what??” (get it?) delivered a lame flavor, other than the pickle slices, that resembled nothing what it suggests itself to be and sans sesame seed bun– this coming from a fast food Big ^^ac fanatic.   The other burgers with the “Menche Sauce” were whelming eaters with a strong pepper flavor.  Nobody said anything about the sweet potato fries and the order of onion rings were nothing special.

Perhaps something about the Bobbalouie changed since 2006.  Perhaps, well, we could keep guessing….  None of us disagreed, that if we were in the area looking for something to eat, that we would return.  The food was not bad by any means.  It was just not what we expected.  However, for any of us that do return, there are 47 other “burgers” to try.  This is in addition to a full menu and full bar.
