With a name like this, you would wonder if Mother Burger is the mother of all burgers. This is an interesting place, that I knew for its frozen margherita that I enjoyed few times in the outside seating area. But this time, I did not go for a drink but for their burger.
We went on a Sunday, couple of minutes after they opened and decided to sit outside. There were not too many people at that time and we enjoyed some quiet time, until a group of girls sat in the table next to us and made me think that, no, they were not four, but probably twenty of them, the noise level being a bit annoying. But we did not really care as we were finished and waiting for the bill, so we could escape! I wanted to try their signature burger, the Mother Burger, that had no description on the menu. So, when I asked the waitress what it was, she told me it was...a burger. Well, thanks for the information! I was able to know that it had I cheese and ordered a double with American cheese and sautéed onions.
It was a quite big burger, with two juicy patties that were delicious and tasty, or should I say tasting like meat. It also had a piece of lettuce that I discarded as well as a slice of tomato, all of this sitting on a potato bun. That was a succulent burger that I literally inhaled.
Jodi went for the veggie patty that she ordered without a bun. Quite good for a veggie option, but not as good as my burger.
The two dishes came with fries that were just ok for me, preferring thinner and crispier one, like the ones at MacDonald's or even better, Minetta Tavern. I just wished that they have sides like onion rings that are perfect with a burger.
I left with my burger craving totally satisfied. If you cannot get a spot at Shake Shack, few blocks from there, you may want to try Mother Burger. And hopefully now you know that their signature burger is...a burger!
Enjoy (I did)!
