We have been meaning to eat at the Merv’s Burgers Mountain Creek Road location and hadn’t gotten around to it. When we learned that they opened another location out in our neck of the woods, we had no more excuses. We stopped by early on a Saturday evening (around 5 o’clock). There was only two other tables occupied and so reading the Seat Yourself sign, we sat by a window. Don’t let the empty tables fool you, by the time we had finished eating, there were only a couple of empty tables. We could see into the other side that there were pool tables, but we didn’t go in there.
Our waitress had our menus to our table before I had even sat my purse down! She took our drink orders. There really wasn’t much to think about. We were at Merv’s Burgers, we were definitely having burgers. She brought our drinks and took our order – burgers with cheddar and regular toppings and fries. She said that they were testing a new bun – corn dusted as opposed to sesame seeds and we said we’d be happy to test it.
The food was out quickly and everything looked great. The burger was obviously hand formed with simple toppings. Now, the burger was good. It wasn’t great, but it was good. I would have liked it a little more juicy, and not so dry. The corn dusted bun was nice and I prefer it over a sesame seed bun. The show stopper for me were the fries. Hot and crispy, perfectly seasoned and hand cut.
We will definitely go back. We like having an option to get a good burger and fries out our way.
