Suburban Burgers: MaGerk’s

When I used to commute to Montgomery County daily, I drove past MaGerk’s in Fort Washington every day. Once a month or so, the office would congregate there on a Friday afternoon for happy hour, but surprisingly, I had never eaten there before! Since it’s on my drive home and Mondays just happen to be half-price burger night, I figured I would check it out. There are about five burger options to choose from, including an avocado topped California turkey burger & a build your own Angus burger option. I opted for the build your own topped with cheddar cheese and bacon (for an additional 50 cent each) – because, hey, why not? It’s half price!

The burger was cooked slightly above medium so not completely pink in the center, and “smashed burger” style with a nice char on the exterior. The bacon was crispy but didn’t have much flavor; I couldn’t really differentiate it from the burger itself unless I happened to look at where I was taking a bite. The Angus beef was a little too greasy for my liking, but luckily a lot of that grease was caught by the shiny, soft potato roll it was perched on. The burger usually comes with chips, but I opted for fries for an extra $2 – especially when the bartender mentioned they were waffle fries! All said and done, the burger – including the add-ons of cheese, bacon & fries – wound up being less than the 8 oz pour of Southern Tier Pumpking I paired with it ($8 for the beer vs $7 for the burger). It was a pretty decent bar burger, but I was glad that it was half-price because I probably wouldn’t get it a regular night. (Never say never, though: all drafts are $3 on Tuesdays from 5-9 PM, so you may need something to soak up all that beer!)
