gerg and I decided to check out Buster's on 28th on Thursday.
Head count at 7pm: 52.
Our server was sweet-natured and prompt, and she wore a flippy ponytail. I love those flippy ponytails!
They have outdoor seating complete with umbrellas. We opted for indoor.
We started by splitting a flavorful, but uneventful caprese salad.
I ordered the portobello sandwich - which surprised me. The mushroom was delivered to the table battered and deep fried atop a bun. The first couple bites were interesting, as I've never eaten battered, fried, portobellos on a bun. Unfortunately, the sammich did not sustain my interest.
gerg ordered the Juicy Lucy.
I asked him about it.
Me: "How's the Juicy Lucy?"
gerg: "It's not bad."
Me: "Is it technically a Juicy Lucy? Remember what The Deets said?"
gerg: "Yeah, the cheese is all gooey and it's inside the burger. The middle is pretty raw."
Me: "How does it rate on a scale of 1-10?"
gerg: "As a Juicy Lucy, it's a 7. As a burger, it's an 8."
Me: "So it's a C as a Juicy Lucy?"
gerg: "Hmm. I guess so."
Me: "I like this sour pickle mayonaise. It's dill-ish."
