Rich, the proprietor, used to run a burger and sandwich cart on Main Street but now has opened up this cozy little place on Broadway. What the joint lacks in ambience, it makes up in a big way with flavor.
Unsurprisingly, I chose the bacon cheeseburger (sans pickles and sauce), fries and a Coke. The fries were absolutely outstanding: crispy, nicely seasoned and among the best I've ever eaten. The juicy burger was excellent and cooked to perfection. About the only quibble I had was that I prefer a toasted bun, but as far as un-toasted buns go, the kind they use at Rich's are fresh, slightly dense, but very good. SuperScrunch said the bun reminded him of challah bread, which I could sort of get.
Perhaps the highlight of the meal occurred when I asked GPaK what his Coke's Fizz-o-meter rating was going to be. The exchange went something like this:
Me: What's the Fizz-o-meter going to be?
Greg: It's just right.
This caused a two-minute argument with SuperScrunch and me on one side and GPaK on the other. Finally, Greg yelled, "WHO IS IN CHARGE OF THE FIZZ-O-METER!?" I hate it when Greg is right.
Oh, and by the way, I correctly guessed what Jon ordered. I'm borderline psychic when it comes to predicting fellow Crew menu choices.
