The golden rule when eating at a new restaurant is: Eat the burger. If they screw up the burger, the rest of the menu isn't worth trying. The follow up to that rule is: If they've named a burger after the restaurant, eat that. Pine Street is the latest addition to the town of Burlington. It follows suit that they be rated on their burger.
I was disappointed that the burger came with the basic and blandest of chips. A general rule with burgers is that they're served with a hot side. Fries or onion rings fit the bill well. I was also shocked that the server called it the "barbecue burger" instead of the restaurant's namesake. I guess some people just don't appreciate the value of a burger.
The burger itself was quite tasty. There was no grease to be had, the burger didn't fall apart, and there was a fair amount of flavor to be had. It was a classic barbecue burger. All in all, a fairly decent burger.
On the side: Chips
