A good turkey burger?

generic turkey burgerHungrily, Aaron emails:

I love a good turkey burger, but have had a hell of a time trying to find any in the Capital region. Any ideas on where to feed my craving??

We've had decent turkey burgers at the Pump Station, Brown's Brewing and -- gasp -- The Cheesecake Factory.

Got a suggestion for Aaron? Please share!

The problem with turkey burgers is you aren't tasting turkey, you're tasting the seasoning they put in it. This is never a problem with a real burger.

I think that the Ginger Man has a pretty good Turkey Burger. I would check it out... Great Beer selection too.

Thanks,

The interior's not the prettiest, but I'm very fond of the turkey burgers at Burger Centric on Delaware. Get the veggie pakora appetizers on the side. Nom.

I've never had a complaint about the turkey burger at the Pump Station. It does actually taste different than a beef burger, like... turkey. My problem is not what the juj. brings up, but that it never matters what I eat at the Pump Station because the beer is so damned good.

I know it's a chain, but I think the Red Robin turkey burger is pretty good!

Ruby Tuesday for the win!

The best thing about the Red Robin turkey burger is the chipotle mayo. I think you could smear chipotle mayo on a corkboard and I would still eat it.

I have to admit, I'm a fan of Red Robin's as well..the best part about theirs is that you can order any burger on their menu and just have them switch from beef to turkey.

I thought people stopped eating turkey burgers 20 years ago when they realized how much fat and skin got ground up in the patties. Sure, it sounds healthy. But industrial-produced over-processed food isn't going to be good for you if it comes from a cow, a pig or even a turkey.

Give me a well-seasoned, rare, grass-fed beef burger, with a nicely charred crust any day. It will blow your turkey burger out of the water on both taste and nutrition.

Shazam!

Michael's Clubhouse in East Greenbush had excellent turkey burgers. Far better in
I eat a lot of turkey burgers & in my opinion far better than Ruby Tuesday's & Red Robin's-/ higher quality & cheaper.
