What I Ordered
I ordered the Green Meadow Farm Double-Cheddar Burger topped with grilled red onions and bibb lettuce at the Haverford location. This burger was a 2 fister and quite tasty on a toasty brown bun, which was delicious. All in all a good burger, not award-winning, but I’d certainly order it again. Of course, I had to try the accompanying Truffle Parmesan Fries, which were a tad on the oily side but otherwise outstanding.
