Burger queen


Saturday night, a Bagburger. The Bag, at the base of Sugarloaf, has been perfecting the burger for 40 years, and it is a beeyootiful thing. I had one of the designer versions, this one with blue cheese. Yes, perfection; ditto for the curly fries that come with it.

Last night, a burger at the Jolly Drayman English Pub, at the Briar Lea in Bethel. $5 burger night, and although I love the Briar Lea and know its portions are generous, I was figuring something more in the slider size. Hah! This is the same burger served other nights for $8.95. A gorgeous, perfectly cooked, half-pounder served with lettuce, tomato, onion and a bountiful side of crispy-yet-tender fries. Yup, all for $5. That’s every Monday night; gotta like that.
