Park Tavern - Delray Beach, FL

Don't buy into the Atlantic Ave - Delray swanky hype... Your simply paying for the atmosphere with this burger.

For any burger that costs $13 (base) with additional $2 per item upgrade is a wallet draining price. Add-ons include: Vermont Cheddar, Blue Cheese, home smoked bacon, caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms & a fried egg. Any of those worth an extra $2 eac? No. But I decided to add Vermont Cheddar & a Fried Egg. The 'house ground' meat patty was a solid portion. Cooked to my liking. But the add ons and presentation really made this a poorly executed, expensive burger.

The cheese was hard to find & taste. It seemed to disappear under the fried egg completely when melted. Evaporating Vermont Cheddar, never heard of it. Then the placement of the fried egg was horrible. It was slanted to the edge of the burger so when sliced open, ALL the egg yolk dropped right off the side of te burger. Not a SINGLE bite of my burger had egg yolk on it to enjoy. How dries the chef not see this when you paying extra for it... Poor execution overall but still solid flavors.

  1. Looks like the place is pretty popular. I wouldn't be surprised if management added more space, tables, chairs, and popup marquees to the joint.
