Christian's Totem Makes the Saveur 100

Christian's Totem continues to rack up great reviews and awards for their burgers. They were recently named to the annual Saveur 100 list for their Jalapeno Cheeseburger. I haven't had the Jalapeno Cheeseburger myself but I can imagine it is pretty awesome.

Your site is making me real hungry - nice work on the reviews. Have you ever reviewed any joints in Michigan?

My last trip (and I do mean last) to Christian's Totem resulted in a severe burn to the inside of my mouth that took 10 days to heal. Apparently, the burger patty I was served had been sitting around prior to my arrival so they nuked it. This resulted in a dry and unbelievably hot patty. When I bit into it and began to chew, I sustained a nasty burn before I could spit it out. The fries had also predated my arrival, and were re-dipped into the grease to crisp them up. This made them crisp, all right, but they didn't resemble potato in the middle anymore -- they were just fried grease. Christians is just so-so, and also very hit-and-miss. There are lots of good burgers out there that are reliable. Why risk being served a nuked burger and refried french fries?

Great burger (Cheese burger - 1/2 lb. all the way) I'd rank it just below the 105 Grocery & Deli, the Town & Country in Sanderson and the
Hog Pen (or whatever it is named) in Newcastle. R.W.

I am a regular at Christians and I've never had a problem with their burgers or fries being nuked or cold. In fact, I usually can't help but dive in too early, while the burger is still fresh off the grill and the fries just pulled from the grease, unfortunately resulting in a burnt tongue, thus taking away from the experience. That might be what makes me keep going back: the chance that I might one day enjoy the entire burger and all it's many flavors. Keep it up Christians.

I don't believe the comment about the nuked burger. I have been going to Christian's since before the Houston Press review put it on the map, and have never had such an experience. I also question whether they even own a microwave.
