Just another burger joint. – This feels like the kind of place that should be a late-night service operation only. The music is too loud to carry a conversation over, the disco ball in the front window is always turning and after a night of drinking, you won't mind overpaying. The burgers are decent but get pricey if you want something more than the basic. The shakes (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry), sprayed with whipped cream on top, taste like your run-of-the-mill shake, but the sweet potato fries were a winner (surpassing the dry regular fries), with good seasoning. The service was slow on an early weeknight and the hygiene slightly questionable (grill-man, please don't wipe your nose on your finger and not wash your hand).
Citysearch Editorial Review – Dupont's The Burger Joint is fast food meets rock-and-roll. If the cobalt-blue walls adorned with electric guitars and old album covers from icons like Billy Idol and Def Leppard don't inspire a spontaneous dance party, then the disco ball and multi-colored light fixtures surely will. As the name implies, the standouts here are the juicy, made-to-order burgers on thick, buttery buns--there are 10 versions, including veggie. Of note: The mayo-based "mojo" sauce and The 9 Pounder--with bun and condiments, it weighs in at 15.4 pounds (and is meant to be shared).
