There’s another new burger in town, and you say, so? The latest entry in the new segment of “not fast food – good food fast” are the burgers, chicken, and salads at Fresh Grill, in the out lot by Best Buy and Burlington Coat Factory, across 217 from Washington Square Mall.
When you start with fresh ground beef from Fulton Meats, and daily deliveries of great rolls from Portland French , it’s hard to go wrong. When you add “cooked to order” and “secret seasonings”, you’ve got it made.
Veteran Portland restaurateur Jerry Pardo gets it right, and I’m predicting you’ll start to see this concept spring up faster than you can say “Five Guys”, cause he has them beat, hands down.
Today, my 3rd visit, I had the Greek burger, great seasoned beef patty with feta, olives, and roasted garlic. Along with shoestrings, a fantastic meal. Mrs. BurgerDogBoy had the club with sweet potato fries, and was all grins. I like that at the counter when you order, they have the patter down to a science, like “pink or not pink.” Add hand-dipped shakes, smoothies, and espresso drinks – what’s not to like?
I’ve got the menu posted on this site, drool over your selections prior to your arrival. Since the food is cooked to order, call ahead if you are in a hurry.
Bottled beer, glasses of wine, and milkshakes available as well, but not mixed, as far as I know.
Will I be back? Weekly, dude.
