It’s been a while since I came to Tuck Shop, and I have always considered this to be the gold standard by which all burgers would be judged. It was time to put this theory to the test, and see if it stands up to the fine offerings from new entrants to the burger market.
Interestingly, this follows directly on from one of the better burger experiences I have had on my journey. It was also an opportunity to share my Dad’s first proper burger experience. Seemed like the gold standard was the way to go.
There is so much to admire here. Everything is made from scratch. Believe me, this approach takes some effort, and does not go unnoticed by me. Gotta love that kind of dedication. I finally got my hands on one of their Redskin brownies and it was just SO delicious! Every other time I’ve been here, they have been sold out. It was worth the wait. I will be attempting to replicate this on the weekend…
The burger is just so right. A nice balance of everything, it just makes me so happy. Although, I felt my love for it waning on this third visit. The flavour was there, but it didn’t blow me away this time. Too much lettuce – and chopped lettuce at that! Visually, the take away option just kills the experience. I tried to get a good photo, but it was just not possible. They do allow eating in, but in the cramped space there were some loud people sharing a 4 patty burger and taking endless photos, patting themselves on the back. Who does that – orders a 4 patty beast; takes 30 photos of it; then cuts it in half and shares it with someone? Completely ridiculous. If you can’t eat the stupid sized burger, don’t order it.
Anyway, back on point: I love this place, and it remains one of my favorites. I wish they would open a bigger place, with more seats and a dining atmosphere. This would complete the picture for me. I have resisted in the past, but this visit I must take off points for the presentation. But, burger lovers, come here at least once. This you will not regret!
