When the summer hits I have to admit I love grabbing some grub from a roadside joint. You know the kind of place you pass by after a day in the sun with just a counter and strictly outdoor seating. You grab a few of the classics like a burger, fries and a milkshake, pull up a seat and chow down. It’s a summer thing to do.
Owner Carl Huben is focused on keeping it local, from the beef and buns to the sodas, chips and ice cream. His goal is to avoid big corporate food and use only local companies. Is that right up my alley or what?
I have a serious love of French Dip so, of course, I ordered the French Dip Burger . The burger is topped with sauteed onions and melty Swiss cheese and a side of au jus for dipping. The burger was a bit more cooked than I normally order, but it was still flavorful. The buttery brioche bun held together wonderfully even after a serious dunk in the au jus. Highly recommend!
Renato went with the Original Burger, where the beef is blended with egg and sauteed onions then topped with lettuce and tomato. Again, great beef flavor. In this case Renato thought maybe there was a bit too much bun to burger.
There is also a seasoning bar for the fries. Pop them into a wax bag, sprinkle on the seasoning of your choice and shake. Of course, I chose the garlic seasoning. And I have to admit it’s hard not to smile when making “Shake, Shake” Fries.
In addition to burgers and fries, Olde 37 offers hot dogs, chili, sandwiches, salads, a few vegetarian items like the Bella Burger, as well as soups and stews in winter. Delivery is available via Vroom Service.
