Lucky Buns, Burgers in DC - Report

Steve | Oct 2, 201902:28 PM     2

This paragraph from Washingtonian lured me into Lucky Buns in Adams Morgan:

"We know, we know: Who doesn’t serve a snazzy burger these days? Still, chef Alex McCoy crafts our ideal—a juice-dripping, jaw-stretching burger—at his spirited Adams Morgan pub. Single or double beef patties are tricked out with cheffy ingredients like bacon XO jam and spicy ’nduja, but we’re partial to the “Alfie’s bun” with grilled pineapple, pickled beetroot, and a runny egg. It was inspired by the Australian-run burger shacks McCoy encountered in Thailand."

So have you ever seen those humongous concoctions on Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives where a ridiculous mess of ingredients is piled high and you realize: This can't possibly taste any good?

Well, welcome to Lucky Buns where, in order to show off, all integrity is thrown out the window. I am not sure how anyone can even taste the burger, but if you could it would not be impressive. This burger is so far from any ideal if you want good-tasting food. Yes it is drippy, but not because of juices from the hamburger itself.
