The Interstate Burger (officially, in my book) IS NO MORE! I initially tried their burger on a recommendation of a friend. I had the great pleasure of enjoying my new proclaimed "favorite burger" maybe 4 or 5 more times. Then, a few weeks ago I took a friend so she could try it out only to find that they changed the fixins! It no longer comes with bacon or spicy mayo, but instead "truffle mayo" which I was told is mushroom based (blech!) I expressed my disappointment in their change, but they obliged and made me the original version. Cool!...Tonight, however...not so cool. My friend & I went back and again attempted to get the original Interstate Burger, my friend go the same. What a let down! All my previous burgers were juicy and delicious to the point where I just had to keep dipping my burger into the puddle on my plate so as to savor every bit of tastiness. This burger was dry as a bone, the beef itself tasted so bland I couldn't believe I was at the same establishment. Maybe it's a new cook, maybe a different brand or beef. Whatever the reason(s), I won't be ordering it again. Then came the bill. Ooh, boy. They held the "truffle mayo" and cherry peppers upon my request. I was charged extra for both bacon and cheese (free with the original version). My total bill was $47! Add on a tip and I'm paying nearly sixty bucks for a couple of burgers, 3 glasses of pino, plus gratuity! That's just nuts! Sorry guys, I'm goin' back to Sketch!

Overall, it was great. The burger was awesome... Truffle mayo, thick slab of cheddar, and hot peppers. The fries are thick and seasoned. However, our server did not mention the specials and we overheard the waitress from another table explain them to other patrons and we wished we got it. Some of the patrons were rude but they can't always help that.

This place is a great new addition to the neighborhood. I've been there a few times and have had a great experience each and every time. Food is excellent. Have had both vegetarian and non and all is wonderful. The music is an added bonus....great IPOD mix.... Happy to see a more mellow option in the hood....not too hipstery and not too locally :) Looking forward to the great outdoor space in the Spring.
