After nibbling on the freebie plate of chopped liver that comes with every meal at Don & Charlie's, I sampled the onion-stuffed Old Fashion burger (slathered with special sauce that tasted a heck of a lot like Russian dressing), as well as the Bleu Royale burger, dripping with creamy blue cheese dressing and topped with skinny, crunchy onion strings. Both were well-crafted, tucked into sesame-sprinkled buns.
Really, these are burgers I could eat all the time. The price is right, there are 10 varieties, and in keeping with the baseball theme, the sturdy homemade fries served alongside them sort of reminded me of what you'd find at a small-town concession stand during the seventh-inning stretch — perfectly fried, hand-cut potatoes in all of their naked glory.
