    Went here on the recommendation of a friend. He said it was the best burger joint in Thailand. As I like burgers and quality burgers are few and far between, I checked it out. Twice.

    Sliders

    3 small burgers served with bacon, peanut butter, guacamole, and BBQ sauce (all on the side)

    Philly Cheese Burger

    180 gram burger stuffed with provolone.

    The burgers are delicious. Far better than any other burger I have had in Thailand. Prices are very reasonable. I went there with my wife, she had the sliders (pictured above), I had a burger topped with jalepenos, cheese and such. She had a beer, I had a gin & tonic. We were out the door for about 1000 baht.

    Second go round, I had the philly cheese burger (again pictured above), my mate had some NY Deli burger. We had that, 2 beers and a white russian each, and the bill came to just under 1500. The beers were 2 for 1.

    There are peanuts and pickles on the table and all you can eat. The pickles are crisp and tasty. Seating is a bit cramped, and they certainly don't serve stiff drinks, HOWEVER, you would be hard-pressed for better burgers in and around Bangkok.

    They are located at the end of Suk. soi 11 (end of the soi, turn left go about 50 meters - on the right)

    Yes! IMO, better burger, and 100 baht/ burger cheaper. If I were in the US, and popped in here at lunch, I would be more than satisified that I'd just had good burger at a good price.

    It is a good place to start if you are heading out for an evening of drinking. The waitresses are all cute enough, even if they look a little worse for wear. Their skin-art belies preivous forms of employment. The service is excellent, especially so conisidering the location and casual atmosphere of the place.

    Nice ...love a good burger even though I'm a Brit. My best burger experience to date in Thailand was at a bar bang opposite a Burger king on Sukhumvit near the sleazy soi 4. Canny remember the name of it, but was @300 Baht with fries and quality ...mind you, about 3 years ago.

    BTW: Ramses, I thought you was an 'up-north' teacher nowadays? :drinking:

    Looks good, Mr. T. Next time I'm in Prachuap I'll drop by and have one or two of those.

    Welcome any time Lui, the Aussie fillet steaks are even better. The little one is doing well in the MEP, she has a yank for math and English.

    I'm pleased to hear that. Both, I mean, about the fillet steak and the little one. Is that Prachuap Wittayalai?

    Yes mate, looked at the Catholic school at Tab Sakae and weighed up the extra cost and distance for her. Spoke to a few teachers and students from Wittayalai and felt good with it. They have a new director too, seems to be making subtle changes for the good.

    A new director may make all the difference. I didn't think much of the former director although I have to admit I rarely saw him and only spoke to him on very rare occasions. Perhaps that's why. Woody, a teacher from Prachuap Wittayalai School was in Chiang Khan two or three weeks ago but I saw him for just half an hour or so. He didn't say anything about the new director so maybe in this case no news is good news.
