There’s been a few burgers and shakes in the last 11 months that just didn’t perform as well as we thought they would. Well here’s their chance to totally redeem themselves!
The Mercury Cafe & Grill was originally going to be my first choice in the very first round of Burger Shake Club, so my expectations were always pretty high for this place. Mikey chose before I did and he took us to the Mercury, which worked out well in my favour because it scored horribly and I won the first round quite handily!
Redemption Round is upon us, and off to the Mercury we went again! I really want this place to do well and knew that the last time had to have been an off day for the diner. Its a diner, it’s supposed to have good burgers and even better shakes!!! Ive got this one in the bag, it’s a lock, they’re going to perform this time for sure!
Well, the results are pretty much the same as last time.
The burger faired pretty well again. Meat was good, bacon was very good and the buns can best be described by the following:
The shake didn’t score as well as it probably could have but did taste good. The Mercury uses chocolate ice cream with chocolate milk, so it’s a little different than most places so that did hurt it a little. But I personally enjoyed it!
After all the marks were in, I scored better than Mikey did the first time but definitely a beatable score.
First Mercury score – cumulative avg of 68.00
Second Mercury score – cumulative avg of 70.17
Difference of +2.17
