I loved my stay in Lexington, Kentucky and how could I not with stops at A&W Burgers Chicken Floats, Blue Door Smokehouse, Frisch’s Big Boy and Parkette Drive-In. When I read about Burger Shake I knew it would fit in nicely with the restaurants I just mentioned. The no frills keep it simple stupid menu is exactly what I like to see when I visit an old school burger joint.
I skipped out on fries and went full speed ahead for the Chili Dog and Double Cheeseburger with a Chocolate Milk Shake. When I unwrapped the dog I was ecstatic to see no beans in the equation. I made a shakey mustard trail down the middle and took a swig of that chocolate shake. Yes, I had no choice as it was so thick and tasty. Damn, that chili dog was so good too.
The Double Cheeseburger was everything I was hoping it to be and I cheated a little bit. I added some Mayo, Mustard, and Ketchup to the bottom bun. I did feel guilty for doing that but honestly, it’s what I would have done when I was a kid. Next time I solemnly swear to only add pickles and mustard, *Scout’s honor.
