Restaurant Tue Aug 24 2010
Months after its anticipated opening, M Burger is still creating lines along Huron street as patrons wait patiently to step into the self-dubbed "fast casual joint" to order burgers, fries and shakes. This Lettuce Entertain You restaurant focuses on just a few menu items, and doing them all right. Similar to the west coast's In-N-Out Burger, M burgers feature a secret sauce (which really isn't a secret as I'm fairly sure it's 1,000 island dressing...), lettuce, tomato and of course pickles. The fries are made to order and the shakes are smooth, creamy and ready to drink (no waiting for the ice cream to melt so you can actually suck it through the straw). While all of this isn't news, the secret monthly shakes certainly are. Each month M Burger creates a shake that is not listed on the menu and can only be ordered by asking for it. This month's flavor: Double Espresso. It's rich, decadent and the perfect blend of vanilla soft serve and two shots of Intelligentsia's Black Cat Espresso. Past flavors have included blueberry and butterscotch.
Stay up to date with all the secret shakes and other menu items by visiting M Burger's Facebook page or asking one of the delightful counter assistants (seriously, they can make anyone's day).
