Last weekend was another brunch day in the burbs. Being close to Jenkintown, I tried one of Drake Tavern’s seven burgers.
The Black Angus burger comes topped with (obviously) bacon, ranch, and cheddar. In addition to those, it sits on top of lettuce and a bed of fried onion strings. It’s sandwiched between a LeBus bun and served with pickle chips and Brew City fries. I later learned that Brew City fries was the name given to their beer battered fries as they have regular fries, too.
The burger was cooked right to medium-rare. It wasn’t particularly dry, but it wasn’t super juicy either. It was, however, pretty large and a good size for the fresh baked, flaky LeBus bun. The burger was alright and filled a craving but could have been better. My favorite part was the fried onion strings. Those things were good! I would have preferred a juicier burger, meltier cheese, and a smidge more ranch (the burger needed more moisture of some sort). The fries needed a little bit more, too.
They have a couple other burgers on the menu that sounded good. Perhaps I’ll try one of those next time!
