Juicy Jake’s Junior

After math camp today, Dad drove me up to Jake’s Wayback Burgers in Elkton, MD for lunch.

I had a “Junior” which is a single burger patty. You can also get a “Jake” (2 patties), a “Big Jake” (3 patties), and you can get turkey burgers or veggie burgers instead of beef.

Options for non-burger eaters (WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?) include chicken, hot dogs, grilled cheese, and salad. Check out their menu for details.

Because Jake’s served a single, a double, and a triple, Dad wondered if there was a “secret menu” like at In-N-Out Burger where you can add extra patties. Nice idea, Dad, but I don’t think Mom would appreciate you eating a 4×4.

Dad is on a diet. He is only supposed to eat burgers occasionally and he is only supposed to eat the smallest burger with the most salad toppings. Today I can report he had a small burger, no cheese, no sauces, no fries, no milkshake, and a liter of water. It sucks to be him.

I am not on a diet. I had the Junior, fries, and a strawberry shake. It rocks to be me!

Here is a photo of the burger patty. It is everything a burger patty should be. It is made from fresh beef (never frozen! no pink slime!), it is juicy without being fatty, it is cooked to order, and it is flattened out to fit the bun.

I did not have cheese or bacon today, because I wanted to taste the beef. It had a great flavor and was not covered in salt or “grillin’ spices” or weird sauces. You can get some crazy toppings (chili, fried egg) and that could be fun, but today I just wanted a pure burger.

I award this burger a score of 8 out of 10.

If there is a Jake’s near you then I suggest you visit.
