Burgers are better than Two Way Grill at Pulaski & Elston, but not as great as Kuma's.
Two Way Grill serves a quite reasonable 30's-style burger
, not really an apt comparison to McGill's 1/2-pound bar burger. Kuma's
, in all it's 10-oz glory, is in a league of it's own, also costs double the $5 McGill's Burger, which leads to today's lunch.
McGill's Burger w/tater tot option
Burger was juicy with a distinctly beefy flavor with grilled and raw onions, tomato, lettuce and, as requested, med-rare on a toasted sesame bun. Tater tots were crisp and satisfying in that special tater tot way.
Steve Z's Cheeseburger w/grilled onions and tater tot option
Wings were of the non breaded variety with decent heat.
Seasoned bar cook Yvette, who doubles as bartender mid week lunch, was friendly, efficient and seemed to enjoy her job.
If the well fried tater tots are any indication the Friday night all you can eat fish fry (cod/$7.50) should be a real treat. Add the fact McGill's serves a limited bar menu until 1am every day, I've added another arrow in my bar food quiver.
