Basically Veneto with none of the personality or flair. You can survive without flair, but not without personality. You get three burgers here—just to clarify for those with counting problems (we'll cure numericus perplexicus someday!). One is draped in Swiss cheese, another in blue cheese sauce, and the last in BBQ splork.
Keg wins points for at least serving what appears to be house-made patties in their minis (and using higher quality beef than you usually find at a chain restaurant). Even the ciabatta bun used to house each mini is not nearly as detrimental to enjoyment as a ciabatta usually is—here the buns are soft and the patties have been formed into ovals to allow for better symmetry.
So with two major factors going pretty well for The Keg, why do these minis remain so banal? Well just look at them: they're lazy. Lazy is often fine if it just means sticking to the generally accepted burger blueprint (lettuce, tomato, mustard, mayo etc.), but even that requires some thought.
Swiss cheese is like any given awards show performer: you better sexy up the stage around her, 'cause she don't sing sultry enough on her own. And BBQ sauce—don't even get me started. The blue cheese sauce is more-or-less good enough to stand on its own, and thankfully rises a little above the blahness of its brethren. The other two really are little more than works in progress though, and that's a shame.
VERDICT: Veneto is well worth the extra cash.
