went a few weekends ago after a movie. it was CROWDED! but we found a place to sit upstairs and had some beers. we ordered the lobster and shrimp eggrolls and the burger. this is not a big review - just a quick take.
eggrolls - pretty bad! about one cut up piece of lobster per roll (i know - what do i expect), not particularly good tasting shell, poor texture (crispy outside, but too thick - and so gummy/stretchy middle). they had way too much cabbage/carrot inside. dipping sauces not so great. for $14 - i would definitely skip. i wanted the mac&cheese or nachos or shrimp - but somehow ordered this? odd choice.
burger - OUTSTANDING! this was super delicious. we got it medium rare, cooked perfectly. bacon and cheese flavor seemed infused throughout along with the onions and sauce. the onion/sauce combo had a hint of the onion reduction on the FO burger. the cheese/bacon, however, made it a different beast. i really thought this was delicious. zero complaints and i would like to eat again.
shoestring fries - first, i don't like shoestring fries. so we have to start there. these were particularly eh. somewhat stale almost - not crisp and no seasoning at all. so it just tasted like dried potatoes. again - i don't really like these anyhow, but especially didn't care for this version (I will eat them if seasoned and cooked properly - i couldn't eat these).
oh - and i almost forgot - the funniest thing about the place was the aroma of truffle oil every time a server past us. they had truffle fries and so i assume that was what it was -- but it seriously overwhelmed the nose.
