Quinta Steakhouse, Pearl River, NY

Where: Quinta Steakhouse, Pearl River, NY

What: Black Angus Hamburger

Build: Black Angus burger with American cheese, lettuce and raw onion.
I took the tomato off, I can't enjoy any tomato that isn't garden-fresh and blood-red. I mean, if it doesn't even smell like a tomato, what's the point?

Comments: I was very happy with this burger, and you will be too. The lunch menu features 10 prix fixe entrees along with a soup or salad and coffee - all for $10 bucks. Ya can't beat that with a stick. 

My one and only gripe: They served me an undercooked burger and I had to send it back for an extended stay on the grill. I usually never send food back, but this burger was just plain raw.
  
With that out of the way, I would compare this burger in size and flavor to Bobby's Burger Palace. The burger is made from very fresh hamburger meat (after all, it is a steakhouse), which is loosely packed and served with the mouth-watering aroma of steak. The sesame seed bun was fresh and as soft as cotton. Looking back, I wish I had stuffed some potato chips on top.

I'm a burger guy to the very end and rarely bother with fries, but when I read the menu description: "the best french fries in Rockland County" it definitely piqued my curiosity. And although my experience with burger joints in Rockland County is still in it's infancy, I'd say the fries are definitely a contender for some kind of competition. They were crisp and cooked perfectly (not underdone like most places), but the show-stopper for me was that they tasted like they were fried in steak fat. Yup... they were definitely unique. 

This steakhouse bad boy gets an 8.8* out of 10. It should have been a bit larger (as should the burgers at Bobby's), and Quinta should offer more interesting toppings...that's what hurt the "overall taste" on my rating scale.
*I couldn't give points off for the burger I sent back because I didn't taste it.
