25 Burgers: Classic Cheeseburger

What: Classic Cheeseburger
Build: 70z patty, American cheese, raw onion, dill pickle slices, egg bun.
Comment: I've been a fan of 25 Burgers since my brother-in-law took me for my first one at the Branchburg, NJ location - what a dirty joint that is. Looks like they got close to finishing renovating an old diner and either ran out of money or interest (or both) and just started serving burgers. Don't get me wrong, the burgers at the Branchburg location were nothing shy of greatness, and I don't give a damn what the place looks like; I was just a bit surprised to see the poor condition of a burger joint that had "just opened". Also, it's funny to see how these franchise's vary in size. Branchburg is fairly small, the new one in Fairfield is tiny, yet the one in Flemington is huge (I think it used to be a BK).  Anyhow, back to the Fairfield location: When I found out this one opened just a few miles from my home in Wayne, I was all over it. They have been open for about 2 weeks now and the grill is seasoned and workers are all in step with each other like they've been doing it for years. I got the Classic Burger with my usual cheese, onion and pickle, and of course, NFK. It was spectacular and I am already planning on getting back there soon. One thing I love about 25, is that the burgers are my all-time favorite size, yes, size matters with burgers...  They are a perfect 7oz patty which in my opinion should be the universal size for all burgers. The bun was fresh and soft, the burgers juicy as hell and delicious with that old-fashioned crispy burger taste we all long for. I seriously hope they maintain these franchise's well because if the business end of this burger joint stays strong, they will be a serious contender in the "slow food" arena. You NEED to get to a 25 burgers, you will not be disappointed. PS... the fries are some of the best I've had in years... and I promise better photos the next time I visit...
