Reader: $13 for a friggin' cheeseburger?

Since Tom Ryan founded Smashburger, it's no surprise that his namesake Tom's Urban 24serves a good burger. "Made with eight ounces of ground Angus, the patty isn't smashed to order, as it is at Ryan's other joint -- that technique doesn't work as well on a chargrill -- but it is marbled with a half-ounce of frozen, grated butter," Gretchen Kurtz reveals in this week's review of Tom's Urban 24. "Topped with bacon, cheddar and Stranahan's Whiskey barbecue sauce and barely contained in a toasted brioche bun, the burger is every bit as good as it should be, considering Ryan's pedigree."

But is it good enough for the price tag? See also: - Tom's Urban 24: Is this upscale diner ready for prime time? - Photos: A closer look at Tom's Urban 24 - As burger season approaches, take a tip from Tom's Urban 24
