BASEBURGERR Bochum

Reviewed By tonibulg

Well the problem might be that i'm a chef myself. A head chef to be exact. So i might be a tricky customer. But non the less a fair one. After doing some research on tripadvisor i decided to check Baseburger out. I made reservations for 4 of us on a Sunday evening and off we went. The place was full when we arrived, so i already knew that the waiting time of about 40 minutes (for the main course) would be quite fair (i do work in the industry ;-)). The first thing i noticed was the fact that there weren't enough waiters for the amount of people dining. I could have lived with that. Two of us ordered cocktails and 2 of us lemonade... 10 minutes later came the lemonade... Another 10 my cocktail... And another 5 the last cocktail... Really?!? No need to mention that the ones who ordered lemonade were almost done when the last cocktail arrived... In between we managed to order food and i opted for 'son of the b...' (pulled pork/regular patty) burger. A friend of mine ordered a salad as an appetizer and a burger. Needless to say i was watching carefully what was happening around... 20 minutes after ordering the food my friend asked about the salad and got impolite 'it's coming' as an answer. So we waited... 40 minutes after placing an order we were approched by a waiter saying they were out of pulled pork!!! Meanwhile all the other burgers were surved AND the salad!!! So i had to decide ASAP what other burger i would take instead and got a promise it would be out very soon... The table next to us also got their appetizers with burgers and as all of them ordered nachos, they looked pretty stupid... Finally 50 minutes after ordering i got my burger... Unfortunatelly, the patty was lacking flavour, no salt, no pepper (and none was on the table), as did guacamole. The other service girl tried to bring away my cocktail when it was still half full, so i had to basically yell for her to stop... Then we decided to order a dessert and i went for brownie. It was good. But in the middle there was a ball of chocolate which as i suppose, was meant to melt in the oven... Same picture at my friend's plate... What shall i say?!? Just fyi if people order an appetizer it's a good way to keep them busy and happy until waiting for the main course. And what's the point in bringing it all together?!? All in all, really not sure... With some improvements it might be really really good... If service, and all other problems stay, i'd rather recommend Hans Im Glück, at least they know when to bring appetizer and patty has flavour...

Bang Bang Burgers & Beer

Reviewed By p_l_c_s

There are a lot of places you here a lot of good things from and often you are disappointed about because they don't live up to the expectations, this is not the case with Bang Bang Burgers. I was with a group of people in Gelsenkirchen and this was our dinner plans and we were all very happy. The restaurant is cozy and the service is really nice. Some of the people in our group couldn't speak much German and the staff was kind enough to make the effort to speak to them in English. The menu is not big but the burgers on offer can be swapped for a veggie patty (two different kinds) or a chicken burger. In our group we had four different types of burgers, as well as four different sides and several dips, everyone was very happy with their burgers, fries and dips, though the quinoa salad was only okay, but with the high quality of everything else it was forgivable. The prices are comparable with other high-end burger place and the servings are very generous. All and all, if you are in the area, this place is more than worth a stop for the lovely atmosphere, great food and service.
