|Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage|
|Cheeseburger - Flat Patties|
|Double Cheeseburger - Charlie's Kitchen|
Our third and final burger was from Charlie's Kitchen, famed for its double cheeseburger ($5.25 + $1.00 extra for waffle fries). Charlie's has that grungy-diner feel with blaring music and a dark interior, lit only by flashy, outdated neon lights. I give them bonus points for offering up my beloved waffle fries (why I have such an obsession I'll never know) but they have a off taste to them (old oil in the frialator perhaps?). The burger is thin patties again but very gristly, lackluster and served on a hearty and boring sesame bun. Again I bring up the subject of atmosphere and situation. This burger is the type that you order with a big group of friends after a long evening of drinking and not something you go out of your way for. If you're out laughing and having a great time over a couple beers, does an average burger taste better?
If asked to rank the three of these burgers, my list would look like this: Flat Patties, Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage, Charlie's Kitchen. Anyone else out there have burgers from these three spots? Let's get the discussion going, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
Stay tuned for other exciting burger news....it's going to be a big month!
