I heard good things about the burgers at this place so it was high time I gave it a try. The fact someone stole the “C” and “Y” off the side of the building doesn’t speak too well of the neighborhood it’s in, but I’ll risk anything for a good burger. A couple Vietnamese guys run the place so there are a few Vietnamese / French inspired items on the menu, but I was here for the burgers. Next visit I may try the Lemongrass Chicken Tacos or the Mussels & Frites, both of which sound delicious.
My dining partner and I decided on splitting the Classic All-American Burger and the Hot Sausage sandwich.
The burger was delicious. Fresh toasted brioche bun and a nice thick slice of ripe tomato on it. We always order our fries extra crispy and these were great. And they give you plenty. I wanted to, but forgot to ask if the pickles were made in house. They didn’t have a very strong dill flavor and were very good. They do make their own mayo (aioli).
After we ordered the hot sausage I realized I didn’t ask if it was a link or patties, and if it was served on French bread or a bun. Well, it is a link, and served on a kind of hoagie roll. The link was delicious with a nice spice to it. The bad thing about a link was it didn’t cover the bread well, so I grabbed my knife and butterflied it right there at the table for maximum roll coverage. Yes, I am just that talented.
Only thing I could knock the place on was the speed of the service. It took about 30 minutes to get our food after we ordered it. If you don’t mind the wait I recommend this place.
