Central--Other than the Burger

Good morning hounds,
I hope everyone is waking up this morning despite the spring forward-shortened night.
I need a suggestion for my next visit to Central. I have been there for the burger several times and have always found it to be one of the best in the area. Unfortunately, last night's left something to be desired. It was cooked medium rare or cooler in some spots even though I requested Medium. It was also a bit sloppily put together. I couldn't even make it through one bite without the burger and toppings sliding right out of the bun (which was quite soggy on the bottom). i had to send back the fries because the insides were still a little tough (in the fryer for too short of a time?) but they were good the second time around. The food itself was quite good but eaten with a fork following all the falling apart. No problem at all. Has anyone had a similar experience? I can get the sloppy, no frills burger at Ray's.
However, I like the place a lot in general and still want it on my list of go-to restaurants. Hopefully, I can get a recommendation for my next visit.
Please help.
