The Dockside Cafe, Tuckerton, NJ

Hill Country on Urbanspoon



Where: The Dockside Cafe, Tuckerton, NJ
What: Patty Melt
Build: Hamburger (I'm guessing 6 or 7 ounce), American cheese, fried onion, thick cut rye bread.
Comment: I haven't been to the Dockside since July, when for some odd reason I had a mystery meat burger. It was as if they were so busy they ran out of burgers and grabbed some old frozen stuff from the freezer. I don't know how else to explain it unless they tried a super-cheap brand of meat. In any event, I'm happy to say, they are back to the good juicy quality I remember. The Dockside's Patty Melt is basically a grilled cheese on fresh bakery rye bread with a burger tucked inside it along with some fried onions. Take that and pan fry it in butter and it's really kinda hard to fail. Cooking with butter is like cheating on a test, it's really never going to taste "bad".  Anyhow, the burger came out a perfect medium rare with juices leaking everywhere. I was a very happy camper. One bite and I realized it was everything I was hoping for. Fresh meat cooked perfectly, fresh bread, just the right amount of onion, and a good quality cheese. If not for being a bit too salty this would have been a 10/10.  This one gets a 9.5/10.
