Silver Spring House

Review 19 @ Stop #18
Silver Spring House
8322 East Kemper (west of Harper’s Point)

Known for its chicken and comfortable atmosphere, a friend highly recommended the burgers so enter the Cincinnati Burger Guys to make a judgment.

One thing for sure, numerous options for eating are available: the main dining room, the outdoor brick patio with umbrella-shaded tables, the dark lounge area, or the covered open-air area with a beer garden atmosphere.

The Silver Spring House’s menu is large, including several burgers. Given the wide range, the menu of sandwiches and entrees reminded us of our burger trip to the Back Porch.

The Burger ($5.95) is a one-third pound medium-sized patty served on a toasted Kaiser bun with shredded lettuce and sliced pickles on the side, with Saratoga chips.

Given the ambiance and reputation, the excitement quickly turned sour. Not only would they not serve Wolfy his requested medium rare, only minimal differences existed between the medium and the medium well. Freddie was very unhappy with his tasteless, dry patty surrounded by a dry bun. Bucky simply stated that there wasn’t anything exciting about this burger.

Let’s face it. The Silver Spring House is a popular gathering place with a broad menu and a wonderful atmosphere. Advice – stick to the chicken and get your quality burger elsewhere.
