Nothing like a burger ...
This past weekend,
I finally ate where the President of the United States dines: Ray’s
Hell Burgers in Arlington, Virginia, right outside Washington, D.C. Let
me tell you, the news reports are true, it’s a hell of a place – great
burgers, seating outside and, on a late Saturday afternoon, a friendly
beagle on the alert for some freshly ground meat and lots and lots of
I highly recommend the place. It’s not the best burger in this country
(this will be revealed at a later date), but it’s pretty good one –
incredibly juicy and you can have it your way. As I wasn’t looking for
votes, I didn’t have to stick with the President’s plain cheddar-cheese
choice with spicy mustard but could go for the sophisticated option:
the B.I.G. Poppa. That’s a burger au poivre (lots and lots of cracked
black pepper) with Danish blue cheese, cognac and sherry-sautéed
mushrooms and grilled onions. Definitely order Ray’s heck sauce on the
side. It’s a horseradish kick.
Others at our table got the Big Punisher, a burger hotter than h-e-l-l,
and the Soul Burger Number One, a jazzy American number. The homemade
coleslaw was good as were the sweet-potato fries, but the skin-on
French fries were even better. Go hungry or split your burger with your
sweetie, which is what I did!
