Take Your Pick…

… of the best burgers in the USA, bar none!. This is no exaggeration, because I’ve tried burgers all over the country and the world. The Classic Diner in Malvern, PA, serves them up exactly as ordered and here’s the photo to prove it.

The one in the lower left is topped with pepper jack cheese and fried onions. The one in the upper center is cheddar and sauteed mushrooms. Dig those onion rings, too! Man oh man, what meal! The flavor is akin to a delmonico steak brought back to life in the form of the burger. Never greasy, always juicy, you can count on the Classic Diner to deliver when your burger jones just has to be satisfied, which for me is about once every six weeks or so. I can’t hold out any longer than that. Add an ice-cold Coca-Cola and your set for the rest of the day, or a good nap.

The Big Joe (burger that is)

There’s a place in Aruba called Smokey Joe’s. It’s a rib shack with outdoor seating, paper towels on the table, and metal cans for the bones. In other words, a place I appreciate when the need for cholesterol ingestion arrises. Well, they came up with “The Big Joe.” The verbal description is something like this: a cheeseburger topped with pulled pork, cole slaw, lettuce, tomato, onion, and the rest. Here’s the visual vertical profile:

That’s a stack of fill-you-up if ever there was one. Just in case, it comes with fries. I have to say, that pork on top was most delicious and the tangy barbecue flavor contrasted well with the cole slaw, too. The burger underneath is charbroiled and satisfying on that most basic level. In other words, after one of these, you’re good to go so long as you have a cardiologist on standby. Be sure to wait an hour before going swimming after you eat this.

Bon dia.
