David absolutely loves this place. And I can’t complain, their burgers are tasty. So once Lent was over, it was on our schedule to head here for lunch today.
When we sat down, I ordered an ice tea and David ordered a Magners. A few minutes later, I ordered a Guinness. When in
Rome a pub, right?
Their burger menu at this place is huge and very tantalizing. A couple of times that I’ve been, I’ve had the Hawaii 8-0 and the Mexican. This time around, I ordered the Italian which had onions, peppers and melted cheese, ordered medium rare.
These burgers are gargantuan. Now, while they are juicy, lean, charbroiled (which I love) and smothered in delicious cheese, it’s actually a battle against you and your napkin when you eat one of them. Don’t expect to be dainty and don’t expect your chin to stay clean. I do like the taste of these burgers, but I am not a huge fan of the size. Because of the lack of surface space on the burger, the peppers and onions just fall out of it and I’m ended up with just a cheeseburger. And the “fries” that come on the side are not really fries, more like steak-potato-wedges which have to be eaten with a fork and knife. They are a meal in and of themselves, and I ended up taking mine home to have as an afternoon snack. As a side note, the chef was nice enough to box up fresh potato wedges for me to take home.
All in all, I would say that for burgers in the Somerville area, RF O’Sullivan’s is a solid choice, but probably wouldn’t be my top choice.
