The next great Cincinnati burger?

So there's been talk of a new burger place in town that has awesomeness on a plate - at a good price to boot - so I had to check it out!

I'm talking about Gordo's in Norwood - it's right across from the Norwood Library on Montgomery Rd. They don't have a website that I could find - if someone knows it - please send along and I'll link it!

So now - the important stuff - THE BURGERS!

The top photo is the Gordo burger - which has boursin cheese (I think? really creamy ala goat cheese but begins with a b) as well as mushrooms, bacon and some other stuff.

The second photo is a blackened burger with tomato, bacon and more good stuff...

All burgers come with fries at around $7.50.

They also have a wide variety of other items on the menu - appetizers, sandwiches and "entrees" such as pasta, etc...

The atmostphere is nice...it's recently been redone and looks great on the inside.

All that said - the service was a bit slow and it wasn't very busy (4 tables out of 20). Secondly - the burgers were all overcooked and dry. I asked for mine medium rare and everybody else asked for medium - they were all pretty much well done.

But the service (other than wait time) was great and the taste of the burgers was good. I like that they are trying unique flavors and the menu does look great. I'd like to go back and try them again...

I really love the burgers at Terry's - these are good but not as good as those - IMHO. BUT I do want to go back and try some of the other menu options...

So - the burgers - a 2.5 star - but I'm going to give it another whirl because it's close-by, affordable and has unique options. So let's say 2.75 stars!

I finally tried something else - got the chicken breast entree with bacon and mushrooms. It came with 2 sides and I chose roasted veges and potatoes gratin. It was delicious! Terry's has the best burgers in town - hands down. But Gordo's - you got that right! I can't wait to go back and try the other entrees!
