The Evergreen Dairy Bar, Southhampton Township, NJ

Evergreen Dairy Bar on Urbanspoon

Where: The Evergreen Dairy Bar, Southhampton Twp., NJ
What: Cheeseburger
Build:The burger was close to a 6oz beef patty (I'm guessing) with lettuce, 2 slices American cheese, full slice raw white onion, pickle, fresh Kaiser roll. 
Comment: This makes two great old-fashioned burger joints in one week I've visited. The first was the Farm Stand in North Jersey and the very next day I'm now at the opposite corner of the state inside the Evergreen Dairy Bar (about 30 miles east of Philly on Rt.70). There is nothing better, and I mean nothing better than a quaint, family owned and operated AMERICAN restaurant. Homemade soups, salads, sandwichs, pot pies, and burgers and dogs. Um Um Um. The burger you see below was not a fancy Pat Lafreida blend or a pampered Kobe or Wagu beef, it was just a good old-fashioned American beef burger cooked to medium/rare perfection with fresh toppings in a neighborhood surrounding that you just can't easily find anymore. God knows how much I miss joints like this.  The double cheese took it's time to melt, but it got there soon after I dug into the burger. As for the other toppings; I'm so sick and tired of burger joints that over-think burger toppings. Most places nowadays have made the switch to red onions from white onions. That's why this thick slab of sweet white onion along with the tartness of the dill pickles made this burger even more delicious and refreshing for me.  And since most people my age grew up with Iceberg lettuce, I was more than happy to see it on my burger as well. Romane lettuce on a burger (or any sandwich for that matter) is just not the same, so-what if there is no redeeming nutritional value with Iceberg lettuce? (I'm eating a burger for Pete's sake) Who gives a damn? When most of the US population was raised on Iceberg lettuce, why change it up? It's the perfect topping; it's fresh tasting and adds that crispy/crunchy texture without adding flavor which would take away from my burger.   8/10.

Great job to the folks at Evergeen, can't wait to get back there.  (I'm really kicking myself for not ordering a cup of the days special: Cream of Asparagus Soup).
