Shady’s Burger Joint serves burgers and sandwiches, but I was definitely there for the burgers. The place was weirdly decorated like it was a little bit shady, so I guess that’s why they took that name. The even had a small bar with beer, wine, and hard liquor.
I ordered “The Hood”, with cheese, jalapeno, and onions with a side of fries. There were no options about how I wanted it cooked so I assumed it would be medium well.
The wait was not too long, maybe 7 or 8 minutes and they served it on a metal plate like you see other new and fancy places. I like this kind of arrangement so it was all a plus. The bun looked good also (see picture below). The burger was very good. The cheese was good and the meat tasted really good. It was a petty that they cooked it well-done. I am sure the burger would have improved had they cooked it to medium. The jalapenos were not spicy at all. I guess they want to play it safe.
The fries were homemade fries and they were almost perfect. They tasted wonderfully of potatoes the way only a homemade fry can do, but some of they were not crispy enough for my taste. That being said they were darn near perfect.
Shady’s is not so shady with their burgers. They are really good and their fries are even better. I might be back next time I am in the area.
