After a long, hot day at the beach we decided to hit up this burger joint I'd heard buzzings about.The menu is relatively simple, though I want to rant for a moment about that. Apparently there's a ""secret" "menu"" (yes, all those scare quotes are deliberate). It's the sort of thing that isn't a secret at all, and isn't supposed to be, it's just supposed to make trendy people feel good and let them show off about all the """secrets""" they know. Anyway, it angers me. I'm certainly not going to
The burger comes with: bacon, cheese, tomato, pickles, and ketchup. I saw someone else with lettuce, but apparently that's a """""secret""""" and you can only get it if you look up the secret on the internet and say the super-stupid-secret code-word. I'd've liked lettuce, but again, dignity.
You don't get a choice for how they're cooked, but they're cooked perfectly. The patty is big and meaty and juicy. The bun is exceptionally good. Like, if you just took a hamburger bun and... made it better. Like, by a lot. I wish there were mustard and I wish I got whatever top-secret spicy whatever they had, but it was still excellent. A- I took this photo to show to dudes at the wet market so I can point at the cow parts I want. This pile of fries is two orders, so you don't get that much fries. They are heavy and delicious though. I don't know what the duck fat in particular does, but the fries have a nice crisp exterior and are are nice and fluffy inside. I loved them A+.
At the end of the day, I loved the food. I thought it totally blew Beef & Liberty out of the water, and the only thing I didn't like was the stupid hipster secret menu. But I will forgive even that obnoxiousness and say: eat here.
