$45 plus tip for two burgers, an order of fries (a la carte), and an iced tea. I'm not joking. I went for dinner recently. It was an early meal, so I wasn't surprised to see the restaurant empty. The atmosphere is a schlocky retro 50's rehash, with a lot of chrome and cobalt blue. A huge, super-cool flame-adorned papier mache hammerhead shark is suspended above the bar (a la the taco lady at the Rio Grande). This is a place that I don't imagine sees a whole lot of repeat business. Sure, the burger is a decent burger, and it ain't hard to make a decent burger. Mine was a little rare (I ordered it medium, and it was definitely south of that). The brioche bun that accompanied my Kobe burger was nice and soft. I sincerely doubt that the meat was ground fresh (and Kobe? Not on your life). My associate's bison burger (also ordered medium) was overdone and tasted just like the three other bison burgers you can find in a 2-block radius of Acme (at two thirds the price). The 'thick-cut' fries were undercooked and floppy and not worth the $4 we paid for them. This place is a gimmicky hackstraunt suitable only for the appropriately-themed quadrant of Disneyland. Acme's burgers are a joke. If you want a delicious burger, go to Crown Burger. If you want a high-end delicious burger, cook it yourself. At least you'll know how badly you're ripping yourself off.

I HAD THE ELK BRATS WITH COUNTRY POTATOES A REALLY GOOD SANDWICH

3 things:

 

1) Service is AWESOME.

2) The fried zucchini sticks are AWESOME.

3) Their teeny tiny 4 oz burger is AWESOME.

 

I would go there every day if I could. Oh, and the full bar helps....
