One of my all time favorite places to go for a juicy, top quality, hamburger and fries is Fleming’s (there is one close to me in North Scottsdale but they have 64 locations in 28 states). If you time it right, between 5 and 7 any day, you will hit their happy hour at the bar. Their HH menu consists of $6 cocktails, $6 glasses of wine, and $6 select appetizers like Pan Crisped Pork Belly, Tenderloin Carpaccio, Calamari and Shrimp. They also have The Prime Burger with Cheese and Bacon along with a side of fries for $6. You can’t go wrong with this one peoples!
I like to get a $6 Vintage Vodka Martini to go with my burger, it just feels right to me to sip some clear while savoring the meat and breadal unit.
The burger is gorgeous… from it’s toasted brioche style bun to it’s crispy strips of bacon it’s truly a masterpiece of burger simplicity. As usual I go with a rare burger for maximum juiciness and I ask for an extra large sized ketchup bowl so I can dip my burger into it. Fleming’s is very consistent and I have only had it overcooked once. You used to only get a burger for $6 but now they also give you a nice portion of their tasty fries or onion rings (not too much, just right). Oh yeah they also give you complimentary house made chips to munch on whilst you wait for the feast. 🙂
For people that like toppings you get the lettuce, tomato and onion on the side which is great because it’s one less thing I have to deal with before sinking my teeth into the main event.
This deal really can’t be beat and I highly suggest you give it a shot one of these Wednesdays.
Protip: Even though it says they open at 5pm, get there a few minutes early and go in to secure your seat at the bar or booths, it gets packed!
I give Fleming’s 5 stars out of 5. BAM!
