Mikey’s selection: Mercury Grill and Cafe
Last week’s burger shake club selection was the Mercury Grill and Cafe. The establishment has the classic diner look and feel to it so it was only natural that we ended up there early on our quest for the ultimate burger and shake
The atmosphere was good and the wait staff was friendly and efficient.
The bacon cheeseburger was the selection of all three judges and it performed pretty well in the ratings getting an average score of 37.3 out of 50
The bacon was delicious, the bun was top shelf but the burger was a little small and while it was tasty I believe all 3 of us had higher expectations. After finishing our burgers and fries we moved onto the Shakes
The offering was limited to the classic chocolate/vanilla/strawberry but once we heard the shakes were served in the “old school” metal cups there was more than a little excitement amongst the 3 of us.
Once served, metal tins and all, we were disappointed as the chocolate shakes we selected were quite runny and very little in the way of ice cream thickness. The milkshakes had a nice taste to them but the lack of ice cream coupled with the “watery” consistency was more than disappointing.
The average milkshake score amongst the 3 of us was 30.7 out of 50.
Cumulative avg score 68/100
Stay tuned for next week’s selection and reviews on our pursuit for burger and shake enlightenment!
