The meat was juicy, very, very juicy. It's topped off with a grilled BBQ sauce and the guy gives you a dipping BBQ sauce on the side. I opted for the spicy sauce, which was good, but once you dipped it, it kind of was all you could taste. It wasn't bad, but not super ideal for a burger. Lettuce and tomato were the iceberg and slice affair, nothing fancy. If you want, they have condiment packets. The bun was your typical sesame affair, did a good job holding up, amazing what difference a well toasted bun makes.
The fries were your typical bulk order frozen fries. Since there didn't appear to be space for a food warmer in the back, they have to fry them fresh, which is a plus. Crispy, lightly salted, all-in-all what you expect from the typical burger side.
I have to say that I wouldn't go out of my way to go to this place, but it's not bad, and I think it's one of the two places in downtown Lake Forest Park you can get a burger, the other likely being Lake Forest Grill, which seems like a more sit-down establishment. If I come back, I'd probably opt for the brisket sandwich or something, but if you're craving a burger, this isn't a bad option.
