I think I might have just found my favorite casual burger and fries spot in town and it is literally down the street, off of Westlake Avenue & Republican, right next to Uptown Espresso.
The burgers are made with hormone-free beef, the onion rings are Ruth Reichl worthy (thick cut, beer batter dipped) and the fries are hand cut, blanched and fried again.
The fixings (tomato, lettuce, red onion and pickles) are served cold (the way it should be), the cheese melted to perfection (Swiss please!) and the crispy pepper bacon is a thing of beauty.
They also serve grilled chicken sandwiches, Boca, Garden and Wild King Salmon burgers and salads.
