PROS AND CONS
Honestly, this was fast food perfection. The meat, frshly ground, was flavorful and juicy, cooked exactly to the specified medium. The tasty sauteed mushrooms and the Gorgonzola – my choice of cheese – packed a umami punch which equals great flavor. The housemade Tasty 17 Steak Sauce, slightly sweet, contrasted nicely with the blue cheese funk. And the soft sesame seeded roll stood up to all the juicy components of the burger. Frankly, I could find no fault with this burger.
Overall Assesment – Two Thumbs Up!
Attention should be called to the superior onion rings. We decided to order the “50/50” – half rings, half fries. Our server, sensing our love of onion rings, suggested we skew our order to 75/25 with the rings predominant. We were glad she did. Thinly sliced, nicely breaded – breaded to order in fact – crispy and sweet, the onion rings were pure deep-fried happiness. The fries – which I’d characterize as “frites”, thin and crisp – were fine but outclassed by the onion rings.
