3.0 out of 5.0 stars

We all love a good dive bar, don’t we?  This one has Christmas lights strung up all over the ceiling.  It does have charm.  Reviews for this place were definitely mixed, but I’ve never let mixed reviews stop me before.  OK.  I have.  There were good reviews as well.

I had heard rumors that the Double California Cheeseburger was the best around.  Hopes were high as I ordered it with some bacon as I am want to do.

It is an impressive looking burger.  The double patties were certainly thick, but as I took a couple of bites, I knew the cardinal sin had been committed.  The beef was super dry!  Not juicy at all!  Dang it!  Very disappointed.

Everything else turned out to be pretty solid for a dive bar burger.  A couple slices of American cheese, pretty good grilled onions, lettuce, tomato, mayo and pickles.  I chose to add bacon even though the menu said crispy bacon.  It was way too crispy, at least for me.  The bun was standard, but fine.

You certainly can decide for yourself.  I’m hoping I just caught them on a not so good day.

French fries – Pretty good!

Chicken Cordon Bleu Balls – OK
