Patty Melt at the Chesapeake Grill
I paid a visit to the Chesapeake Grill in Harvre de Grace, Maryland with Mom and Dad. I have been here many times before and I reviewed their bacon cheeseburger back in April. I like the Cheasapeake Diner because it is close to us (just 10-minutes away) and it is an old fashioned diner that serves everything (if you want breakfast waffles at night you can have them).
I ordered their burger melt which is a flame-broiled burger patty, topped with sautéed mushrooms, sandwiched on rye with Swiss cheese.
Except I skipped the mushrooms, because… ugh… mushrooms!
The burgers at Chesapeae grill are hand formed from 8 oz of fresh beef. This one was nicely cooked and packed full of meaty juices. The Swiss cheese gave it a nutty taste (better for rye bread than American cheese!) and the rye bread had a nice sprinkle of carroway seeds.
(At least that’s what Dad says them are. I just call them “the seeds they put in rye bread.”)
I award this burger melt a score of 6.5 out of 10. It is better than average and having a “melt” instead of a regular burger was a nice change. If you are at the diner then you should give it a try.
Dad says to try it with the mushrooms, but… ugh.. mushrooms!
