Now here’s another burger joint from America, but it’s not from any of the other famous brands or franchises out there.

Still, the place seems to be the official stopover of travelers heading from California to Las Vegas, and vice-versa. Of all the places in the quaint town of Baker, California, this is where the hungry road-goers plan their trips for a lunch on the road.

And with jet streams from the busy Los Angeles and Las Vegas airports cutting through the blue sky overlooking white statues, the Mad Greek Cafe sits as a travelers institution in the American open road.

What is interesting, though, is that the Mad Greek is not only known for its Greek fare, but it is also famous for its burgers and shakes.

So you know what they say that when in America in some Greek inspired diner…

.

Yeah. No one knows that saying. Just made it up.

The Mad Greek Cafe’s menu just reads like what happens when you decide to offer everything from more than just one cuisine: The menu items pretty much stretch the wide side of that lengthy counter. And it’s all words at that. Not much visual cues at all except checking out the meals except of those that have ordered before you.

So to save time and increase efficiency in case some customers want some special custom-made meal just for them, the Mad Greek Cafe has a solution:

Fanatic advocates of consumer rights, whine somewhere else. 😛

So again, a classic cheeseburger and strawberry milkshake is ordered.

(Very reminiscent of that Boulevard Diner order).

The first impression is that the size of the burgers are intimidating to the light-eating, non-American consumer. It is oozing with melted cheese over the freshly grilled patty with fresh tomatoes, onions and lettuce, and comes with a sizable side of fries.

In other American articles, you will notice a trend regarding food being really fresh in America. America is a net exporter of food and vegetables (exports more than it imports) . In the state of California, the vegetables in particular are as fresh as they can get.

Being freshly grilled with crunchy vegetables, the first bite is quite an experience. There is not much a hint of extenders and the seasoning of the patty is even and through. Wish more burgers can follow this.

And the shakes? Thick as if it was made of pure ice cream. Even the thick straw proved useless for it unless you stir it up a bit. That’s why it also comes with a stirrer/scoop.

Healthy alternative? Yoghurts with fruit toppings abound. This strawberry yoghurt had fresh strawberries. It didn’t need that thick syrup.

 

Calorific goodness ends with one stuffed tummy, full of luck for the road to Vegas. And if coming from Vegas and struck out? This place becomes a place of consolation and reflection, where you can ponder on how you could have just spent all that hard earned cash on a juicy burger instead.

It helps that when anywhere in the world, just follow what the locals take in. They would really know some of the best value for money places for the hungry traveler.
