Dirty Burger

Located in the Fairway shopping center, this is a pleasant little restaurant, with a large "to go" counter as well as seating in a modern, comfortable room adorned with comic book art. It was fairly busy on Saturday night, but we had no trouble getting a table.

The menu focuses on burgers and fries, but other items, such as steaks and salads, are available as well.

"Dirty" means they dust the food with their special seasoning blend. It's spicy, but not "hot", if you know what I mean -- there is obviously some pepper in the mix, garlic, interesting flavors. And most items can be ordered "clean", meaning without the seasonings.

We started with pigs in blankets, ordered clean. The hot dogs were served in puff pastry and accompanied by Dijon mustard.

We also ordered the wings, served "dirty" with BBQ sauce. The wings were accompanied by a blue cheese dressing and carrots and celery. Nice bite to the wings, pleasantly cooled by the dressing.

We ordered our burgers medium rare and "dirty". The meat was served perfectly pink, the seasonings a subtle touch. The buns were so soft and fresh that it was difficult to cut my burger in two -- after the hot dogs and wings, there was no way I could eat the whole burger. My burger, topped with Swiss cheese and grilled onions, was so juicy it was literally dripping.

Fries were crisp and tasty, no need for the seasonings. I didn't care for the truffle mayo, but their store-made ketchup is much tastier than the standard tomato ketchup.

Lots of leftovers, of course. And we didn't order dessert -- pretty standard ice cream items.

Yes, another "find". We will be back.
