I was just planning on going home after work on a Wednesday & eating some boring leftovers when I got a tip that Miles Table (1620 South St.) makes Wednesdays their 1/2 price burger night! So I hoped on the bus and headed over. The spot is a cute, coffee shop type set up and less restaurant-y, which I kind of liked. It’s also a BYOB (keeping that in mind for next time). And aside from their Miles Burger (ground chuck, topped with lettuce, tomato & onion, your choice of cheese on a Brioche bun), they also offer up a Turkey and Falafel burger, for the health conscious & vegetarian types. Pair that with fun topping choices like avocado or a fried egg, and hand cut french fries, and you’ve got yourself a sweet mid-week meal deal. (They also take LevelUp, which I love using since paying with my phone always makes me feel like I’m in the future – or Japan.)
I ordered up the Miles burger, medium, with cheddar and avocado (because putting avocado on a burger always makes me feel like I’m being healthy, even though I’m really not). It came out pretty quickly and had a great presentation. The burger was nicely sized to the bun, which was hefty enough to soak up the juices without falling apart, and cooked perfectly. It certainly wasn’t mind blowing, but it was delicious and reasonably priced. And the atmosphere is bright, quiet and cozy, instead of some loud, stuffy bar or a crazy crowded restaurant where you’re constantly wondering where your waitress and your food are. So bring a friend and a six pack on down to South Street and get your half-priced hump day burgering on!
