As y’all may or may not have picked up on at this point, I’m a big proponent of Fresco’s.
Fresco’s is essentially just a little café on the corner here on MIT’s campus
Despite its unassuming presence, Fresco’s is pretty popular on campus and generally draws a pretty big crowd at breakfast and lunch.
The place also plays host to two of the nicest gals in the world. They are always smiling, always friendly, and have some sort of mystical chick power that makes the food taste better than it actually is—smiles are a powerful thing, you know!
Anyway, I wandered into Fresco’s for lunch before my Saturday shift, as is becoming my weekly tradition, and found that neither of the ladies was there. I didn’t think much of it and assumed the food and service would still rock, despite the large, rather creepy man behind the counter.
Additionally, I decided that I’d take this chance to try something different off of the menu.
Here’s how all that went…
What: Cheeseburger Sub
When: January 23, 2010
How (was it): Meh.
Now that I’ve ordered one and learned “what” it is, I can safely say that I think the idea of a “cheeseburger sub” is a little, um, ridiculous.
Essentially it’s a double-cheeseburger, but you cut both patties in half and jam it all in a sub roll. That’s it.
Well, instead of the lovely gal who is usually working on Saturdays, I got what I’m pretty sure is her less-than-friendly husband who overcooked and underseasoned the burger.
It would have been bad enough as a single, hockey puck-like burger, but as a double cheeseburger jammed in a sub roll it was rough to chew my way through the entire thing.
Needless to say, in the future I’ll be going back to the good ole fashioned bacon cheeseburgers at Fresco’s.
