Hidden just off the downtown strip of Atlantic Ave & Federal Hwy, this little 24 seat burger joint is trying to stake claim to the explosion of burgers joints. Atlantic Ave is full of upscale dining and does lack the late-night bar-leaving food crowd, so I can see where this will for right in.
Logo is similar. Colors are the same. Burgers are not. In-n-Out Burger has perfected it, now HiWay Burger in Delray is trying to copy its success.
Simple menu! Single, double or triple. Topped with the basics but what I can't figure out is why is the "spread" just a thousand island dressing. When did that become the standard burger sauce? Thanks McDonalds but the Big Mac has ruined burger joint sauces.
Challenge issued: Burger joints, try new things. Be creative. Entertain out taste buds!
The meat is solid. Thin, flat top cooked patties smothers with cheese on each layer. Although I do love a cheese smothered burger! Fresh cut onion and lettuce on mine was a good compliment. The potato roll was soft and only 5 napkins later it helped create a sloppy good burger. Also, the fries are cut thin, and seasoned well with salt. Those, I must say, I'd be back for late-night after leaving the bars... Don't leave without a shake!
Nothing but great success to the newest addition to the Downtown Delray family...
