Cheeburger Cheeburger

 Cheeburger Cheeburger is a chain of restaurants specializing in you guessed it, hamburgers. They go for a 1950s diner vibe, with lots of neon and stainless steel. We went to the location in Cranberry which I believe is the only location in Western PA. Cheeburger Cheeburger is all about customizing your burger. First you choose the size of your beef patty (anything from 5.5 oz to a whopping 20oz). They also have salmon, turkey, and veggie burgers. Then you pick from a myriad of toppings. Check out their complete menu HERE

  My order consisted of the 1/2 pound burger with American cheese, lettuce, mayo, onion.  It was definitely a full 1/2 pound and was cooked a perfect medium. Everything tasted fresh. My only complaint being that I did not think the beef was as juicy and flavorful as I have had at other places (5 guys, BRGR, Burgatory).     

 We also shared a side of sweet potato fries which were sweet and crispy.

    Cheeburger Cheeburger also has a huge selection of hand made shakes, which are thick and indulgent. 

  All in all I thought Cheeburger Cheeburger was ok.. It has reasonable prices, and is a good place to take kids. However I am not sure that I would choose their burger over any of the competitions. Let me know what you think. 

 RATING: 6/10

The Oven Pizza Company

   So after trying Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza the weekend before. My girlfriend and I went to check out The Oven in Wexford. She was excited because the owner had a pizza place previously that she had thought was very good on Banksville Rd. The Oven's claim to fame is that they cook their pizzas in a big ass wood fired oven, which puts out a lot of heat for a crispy crust. The wood also imports some flavor into the pizza as well..

 Ordering is a little confusing the first time you go to The Oven. You go up to the counter and tell them what you want . The menu is on a chalkboard above the counter. After that, you go and find a table and wait for them to call your name.They have a selection of bottled beers for your consumption as well.

My girlfriend and I shared half of a pizza. Half sausage, half Margarita topped with fresh mozzarella and basil.

 Just like Anthony's Coal Fired Oven Pizza, the star of the show is the crust. It is thin, with a perfectly crisp bottom. Not quite as dark/burnt as Anthony's. The toppings were all fresh and tasty. The sausage tasted homemade letting the porky goodness shine through. However, just like Anthony's the sauce was used just a tad too sparingly in my opinion.

All in all though, a very good pie. If you like a thin crispy crust, this is definitely a place you should stop and try.

Finally, The Oven is owned by a local Pittsburgh family, and you should all be behind supporting your locally owned businesses.

RATING: 8.5/10
