Tuesday Taste of the "Town"


ANDY’S BURGERS
SHALLOTTE, NC

Their menu here.


FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
It’s a 1950’s era theme, one big black and white room, with pictures of Elvis, old gas station signs, that sort of kitsch. Very white and very bright, and pretty clean.

SERVICE:
Confused is the word that comes to mind. Our server, upon hearing the complexity of EK’s burger condiments, realized mid-order that her memory skills were insufficient. She came back with a writing implement, and all was well. Don’t be in a hurry, as it takes surprisingly long for your food to arrive – but oddly, we never saw our original waitress again.

FOOD:
Excellent, juicy, hot burgers with a well steamed bun. We both had double cheeseburgers. I had the onion rings which were crispy, hot, and not over-battered. Overall, a bit greasy, but what’s not to like about that?

CHEESEBURGER & FRIES:
EK devoured his burger and fries (after adding mass quantities of ketchup – as is his wont - but alas, there was no mustard on the table). So far, very early in the Quest, this is the best burger yet. A-

OVERALL EXPERIENCE:
I say highly recommended. This is a surprisingly large chain in NC, and it’s easy to see why. Simple, with very tasty food. Next time I’ll try their “frozen custard” – I’m guessing it’s just soft-serve like Dairy Queen.

WTF? EVENT:
This happened after our departure, actually. The food, while seeming to be of average size proportions, was so gut-filling that it spoiled our concomitant happy hour – neither of us even wanted (or needed) a second beer. Which, I must tell you, is a “WTF? Event” in and of itself. The single burger will suffice in the future.

I wondered if you were going to mention the hyper-blotation we suffered. I've eaten plenty of double burgers and I've never been as stuffed as that ... and it wasn't like they give you a ton of fries (like Five Guys.) Anyway, the double burger is fine ... just don't plan on doing any exercise or drinking any quantity of beer afterward.

Also, I love it when libs worry about how much ketchup someone is using ... or what kind of light bulbs they might want ... or what kind of toilets they use ... or whether they drive an SUV ... etc etc. Very helpful, the libs ... always worrying about others.

Ok, one more comment. I must agree with your recommendation ... really good burger. I'll be getting more burgers from there as circumstances permit.
