BurntZilla is the brick and mortar store for two popular Orange County food trucks: The Burnt Truck which focuses on sliders and comfort food, and Dogzilla which does an Asian inspired hot dog. The first thing we have to address (as every review will address) is the portion size. For $3 you get a slider or hot dog that you could literally eat in two bites. One if you’re feeling ambitious. For reference, an In-N-Out Cheeseburger costs $2.40 and their Double Double costs $3.45. To get full you’ll probably have to mix and match three to four sliders/hot dogs, and that’s with a side of tater tots. I saw a guy order a single PB&J slider, and when it came out it looked so small and sad I could see tears forming in his eyes. Don’t get me wrong, the food itself tastes great, it’s just hard to mentally prepare yourself for portions this small outside of Ethiopia. Too far? That felt like it went too far.
The sliders are pretty much exactly like the food truck, though the hot dogs are probably less than half the size of their food truck counterpart. I’m not even sure these things qualify as hot dogs. These are the kinds of hot dogs other hot dogs point and laugh at in the locker room. Sure, it’s probably just really cold.
$3 Fried Chicken (buttermilk fried chicken, garlic potato spread, country gravy)
Probably the most popular thing on the menu. People love fried chicken and they love gravy so it only makes sense they would at least somewhat enjoy chicken and gravy.
$3 Sloppy Joe (sloppy joe, cheddar sauce, mild pepper rings)
Not as good as the fried chicken.
$3 Dogzilla (avocado, grilled onions, Japanese mayo, teriyaki, furikake, bacon)
They use King’s Hawaiian rolls instead of hot dog buns, because nobody makes hot dog buns this small. Plus, it’s like an unwritten rule that all food truck hot dogs use some sort of sweet and chewy roll. It’s like the first thing they teach you at food truck school.
$2 Tater Tots
Probably the best deal on the menu. You get pretty much what you’d expect for $2 worth of tater tots. After seeing the sliders and hot dogs, I was half expecting them to serve a singular tater tot in a thimble.
