Burger Beast Approved - Burger Shake

Burger Shake – Lexington, Kentucky

When I read about Burger Shake in Lexington, I knew it would fit in nicely with the group restaurants I had just visited: A&W Burgers Chicken Floats, Blue Door Smokehouse, Frisch’s Big Boy and Parkette Drive-In.

The no-frills, keep it simple stupid menu is precisely 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 milkshake. 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 only to add pickles and mustard, *scout’s honor.
