McSorley's Ale House

IMG_4157

Many informed us that McSorley's Ale House is one of the best burger places in town but our experience tell us that it may not be exactly the case. It was by no means bad, perhaps we expected too much. A matter of expectation management I suppose. Therefore, it is very important to be as mutual as possible when visiting new restos in my opinion.

We started with a bucket, yes a bucket of Spiced Rubbed Chicken Wings. The golden skins were crisp and flavorful with hints of spiciness which enhanced the flavors. For those who love cheese, a quick dip into the cheese sauce compliment the juicy wings very well! I wish the bucket was bigger!!

I ordered the Blue Cheese Burgers with Bacon and oh boy was it cheesy both in aroma and flavors.

However, the beef lacked the beefy taste I was looking forward and although cooked to medium rare as requested, it was fairly DRY! The bun was warm and top remained toasty crisp even after 5 mintures into the meal but  meat patty was rather disappointing in my personal opinion.
