Happy 2012, everyone! Sorry the Burger Bloggers are slackers to the -nth degree. We all got really busy, but now we’re back, and we’re hungry. It’s basically our New Year’s resolution to eat more burgers. Who doesn’t love a juicy slab of cow? I digress; sorry, vegetarians. I’d like to throw out an honorable mention to the veggies that help make burgers so dang delicious.

And just as an FYI, I’d like to let you know that the burger bloggers DID get a chance to try Ferdinand’s burger, (when it was still around), and it was delicious. Actually, the burger was fantastic, thanks to Oxford local Kyle Sanders who made it, but the service was, let’s just say, less than pleasant. That experience left us with a bad taste in our mouths, and we did not go back.

And on to our AJAX review. It has to be said that most of us agreed the burger is delicious (except Jill, who just thought it tasted like meat on a bun.) It is a burger that is worth eating a second time. Ajax uses cabbage as a side compared to most restaurants that normally use lettuce. I like that about Ajax, it’s different. However, the sides don’t expand much past cabbage, onion, pickles, tomato, and mayo. And all of our burger buns were cold. Not icebox cold, but you could tell it had been chilling in a fridge. Those of us who asked for onions noticed that they were not only lacking, but were thrown under the burger. It was a little of a disappointing arrangement of burger content.

Overall, we did enjoy this burger. We gave it a cumulative score of 18.2 out of 25. The burger costs $6.50 and that’s not including the cost of cheese at $0.50. The only real disappointment we faced was the bun.

Ajax, as a whole, does few things wrong as an establishment, which is why it’s such a local favorite. You can order cheese fries and get a side of gravy with it. Whaaa? If Ajax ever became a late night munchie place, I know Rebel Ride would have to change its drop off location.
