With the juice cleanse the following day, we decided to enjoy our “last supper” with none other than one of our favorite foods, burgers. There has been talk about going to Lucky’s Last Chance for a while but the trigger hasn’t been pulled because, well, it’s in Manayunk. I’m not the biggest fan of Manayunk and I don’t have much reason to go there. However, this past dinner is slowly changing my mind.
Lucky’s burgers are made up of hand made, quarter pound patties. Most of the burgers are available in both a junior (single patty) and standard (double patty). They don’t ask you how you want it cooked as they’re all made to the same temperature.
I went with My Boy Bleu, The quarter pound patties were topped with bleu cheese, homemade onion strings, and a tomato. It’s sandwiched between a buttered & toasted Liscio’s roll. The meat was cooked to medium well and had a slight toughness to it (not the appalling well done toughness though; it didn’t fall apart). Aside from the temperature, this was one tasty burger. The crispy onions added a nice texture. I believe this was a Liscio’s kaiser roll and it tasted great. If other restaurants that served burgers on a kaiser roll had rolls this fresh, perhaps I wouldn’t have such a negative impression of them.
My dining partner went with the Bacon Egg N Cheese burger. As the name implies, it comes topped with American cheese, bacon, and a fried egg. I wasn’t lucky enough to try a bite, but by the look on her face, I can imagine it was pretty damn good.
The burgers here don’t come with fries, but you have the option of adding them for a couple bucks. I added the fries with Cajun seasoning. The other option was adding the homemade onion strips (it’s about a dollar or two more than the fries). I’m not huge on crinkle cut fries but the ones here are pretty tasty. They certainly didn’t compare to the onion strings though, those are really good!
Despite the medium-well burgers, the meal was delicious and they have a bunch of other burgers I’d like to try, as well as a whole hot dog menu! Till we meet again, Lucky’s!
