When we started SparkLabs Global, I knew we were diving into pool fraught with risk and uncertainty. There were six founding partners, and half of us didn’t know each other well. How were we going ...

Basic Information
They deceive customers and health inspection necessary. They do not serve freshly grilled burgers. On the large pan next to their grill, they have pre-cooked burger patties nicely stacked on the backside. When ordering a Double Char, a 2 patty burger, only one is freshly cooked (you'll get a fresh one if you're lucky). They neatly stack one freshly grilled patty and a second, dry-burnt-on-one-side-like-jerky-chewy-hockey-puck. I live right across the street in this neighborhood, and I've suspected it for a long time and finally confirmed it tonight. Tonight, I ordered a Double Char w/ single cheese. (2 slices of cheese over powers the taste of the burger, and I can't digest it). Mistakenly, they put 2 slices - one on each patty. When I pointed this out they took one of the patties with the melted cheese infused all over it, the cook began scraping off the cheese...impossible without scraping off a layer of the thin beef patty. Health inspection necessary. They cook frozen beef patties for only 3~4 minutes. I asked for my money back and they said they'll cook a fresh patty, but it'll take 3~4 minutes. ***This is BAD sign when they cook their frozen beef for only 3 or 4 minutes*** Plus, my burger that they were trying to FIX will have been sitting there yet another 5 min getting even more soggy and cold waiting for that second patty. Instead, they grabbed yet another hockey puck from a pile of pre-cooked burger patty and said now you don't have to wait. WTF !!! I wasted time waiting for what was supposed to be a quick burger run along with other food sitting in the car cooling off. If you choose to go here, ask for freshly grilled burgers and not burnt hockey puck. Charred red meat causes cancer. Be careful.
