Review of Nationwide’s French Ground Steakburger

Nationwide Freezer Meats is one of the oldest hamburger joints in Sacramento.

From their website:

The French Steakburger is made with U.S.D.A. Choice certified quality steak, freshly ground and topped with our signature thousand island sauce. Each French Ground Steakburger is made with a 1/3 pound patty. We cook each patty to the perfect temperature on the flat top grill to seal the juices for best flavor. We add red onions, tomatoes and lettuce and top the whole thing off with a wholesome french roll, soft and chewy; that’s what holds the sandwich together perfectly throughout the meal.


About Steven

There are a few burger toppings I enjoy including avocado and grilled pineapple, but a good burger is all about the fundamentals of the beef, bun and the traditional lettuce, tomato, pickles and onion toppings. The bun needs to be soft but lightly buttered and toasted/grilled to add flavor, texture and structural integrity. The beef patty needs to be correctly proportioned with the bun, have balanced seasoning that does not overpower the natural flavor of the beef and needs to avoid too much oil/grease that results in the gut-bomb feeling. Added cheddar cheese is welcomed and almost a necessity to ensure you are comparing apples to apples as it is hard to compare a hamburger from restaurant A to a cheeseburger from restaurant B.
