Woodcliff Lake, NJ
What: The Flik Mac
Build: Two 5 ounce Pat LaFrieda burger patties, two slices of American cheese, shredded Iceberg lettuce, diced white onions, crinkle-cut dill pickle chips, Thousand Island dressing, sesame seed bun.
This Flik location uses LaFrieda's standard blend burger patties which are a combination of chuck, brisket, and short-rib from American Black Angus Beef. Our grill girl Dawn is the one who cooks these nuggets of goodness on a flat griddle to perfection - any way you please.
I cannot say enough good about LaFrieda's meats, from their ability to caramelize and crisp quickly to their fat content and their fantastic old-fashioned flavor. I only wish our cafe would try the "flat-iron" blend which is even more delicious (but the cafe is subsidized and this blend comes in at almost double the price tag).
From the crispy edges of these burgers to their pink interiors, the burgers served at my office cafeteria never disappoint. No wonder Shake Shack chose Lafrieda to be it's meat supplier. I'd love to know what blend they use but I'm told it's their best kept secret.
Flik and company get a solid 10/10 on the BC rating scale for this outstanding version of a fast food classic.
I'm always looking for an excuse to eat one of these, so if anyone wants to visit me as a guest to try one of your own, I'm in. firstname.lastname@example.org
