Latest Visit to Burger Joint

As I was walking home on Friday night along West 57th Street, the horrific thought occurred to me that I had not been to the Burger Joint in about 2 years. Looking at my watch and realizing I had nowhere to be (and a magazine in my bag), I decided to pop in. The line was out the door, but the gentleman in front of me assured that it would move quickly and it did (about 15 minutes). I reviewed the menu (remembering that it was like the Soup Nazi - order, hand up your cash, and immediately step aside). A burger, fries, and a Sam Adams was $17.50, which is a little steep in my book. The burger was good (but still ranks behind Shake Shack in my opinion, which is a little juicier), but the fries were outstanding (just as I had remembered) - thin, crispy, and when shaken in their bag with a packet of salt, absolutely delicious. Of course, the Sam Adams and the fact that 2 seats opened up right as I was placing my order (and the gentleman in front of me was nice enough to save me one of them) made it all that much better.
