Carytown Burgers & Fries Restaurant Review

: Carytown Burgers & Fries offers whopping burgers (plain, with cheese and/or bacon or chili, and many specialties like the Pancho Villa with guacamole, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, tomato and onions) dripping with all the trimmings and sided by hot, salty fries. Add to this a thick shake made with milk from grass-fed, hormone-free cows, thank you very much, and you’ve just created the classic American lunch. It’s hard to imagine ordering anything else, though the menu does present hot dogs and a plethora of chicken choices such as the grilled chicken pesto with provolone and roasted red peppers or a chicken club sandwich. Extras are the usual coleslaw and chili choices, plus an unusual chicken fried salad. If you don’t do meat, though, don’t worry. There are garden, Boca, black bean and portobello sandwiches, as well as mock chicken nuggets. Limited craft beer and wine, too. This place is about as casual as Mom’s kitchen table. And just like at Mom’s, dessert might be cookies. Other locations and food trucks.
