Eh. There are two reasons to come to Big Beaver Tavern. Reason #1: If you want to enter the Big Beaver Burger Challenge and get your picture on the wall, along with this t-shirt: “I ate the Big Beaver Burger.” (Which, if read at just a glance, can sound kinda dirty, so maybe would make a fun t-shirt). Reason #2: If you’re one of the old men who play poker downstairs. Oh, a third reason is if you’re in a group around Big Beaver and can’t find anywhere else so you end up here because Kona Grill is too busy. Other than that, I won’t be back. I came here for reason #1 and 3. My friend wanted to check out this burger contest out of a lifelong dream to enter and win a food contest, any food contest (turns out she wasn’t ready for the commitment that day). And again when my friends and I went to three busy places and ended up here instead. As a testament, I don’t even remember what I ordered, just the feeling of dissatisfaction and the lack of flavor. I have a faint memory of dry meat. And my friend wasn’t much happier with her meal. Moral of the story: I bet their burger is fine. And if you want to eat a couple pounds of ground beef for a free t-shirt and fleeting fame, then go!
