If you don't know me, then you don't know that I really like burgers. Cheeseburgers to be more precise. I think it's the perfect meal or snack. It covers most of the major food groups and will always leave you satisfied. When I'm presented with a really fine burger, I'm as happy as can be. It's all the other ones that leave me less than content. But there's no way for me to tell what's good or not without actually trying them out, right? So my burger adventure rides again. This time to Lucky's Famous Burgers with TC in tow.
Their storefront in Hell's Kitchen is medium sized. There's a small counter to order and pick up your food while a few sparse tables are available for those who want to eat in. When I went for lunch, most people ordered take out. I had the luxury of sitting and staying so that I could enjoy the company of my friend. I ordered the Lucky Meal ($10) with the Lucky Cheddar Burger, fries, and a soda. Their soda machine was broken so I was able to get a bottled one instead.
Their burgers are made from Angus beef and served on a choice of potato or whole wheat bun. Naturally, I picked the former. So how did the burger taste? Just okay. It wasn't really juicy nor was it dry. It was somewhere in between. The flavor was lacking. I suppose it could use more seasoning. The cheddar cheese was nice because it was completely melted onto the burger encasing it. The lettuce, tomato, and onion was just forgettable. The bread was nice and soft though and held together through the very last bite.
While I sipped on my soda, TC had the chocolate milk shake ($4) which he said was just okay. Hmm, I sense a trend.
