We were in the mood for burger's yesterday, and since it wasn't Tuesday, decided to give Flipper's another try.
The burgers were big (1/2 lb), juicy, tasty, and relatively cheap $5.75. They cooked them the way we asked medium rare and medium well. They have more different kinds of burgers than I want to deal with. The Flipper Dipper? is the simplest it comes with jack and cheddar, tomatoes, lettuce, and raw onions. The Mediteranean burger was made with feta, and tlo. The feta really melted and slopped all over the place, but was good. They also have tofu burgers and turkey burgers for $1.00 more.
The curly fries were awful, but the steak fries and onion rings were ok at best.
The best part was the Milk Shakes made with real ice cream, like I haven't had in a long time. They also had Floats, which I have rarely seen outside of New England. A float is a milk shake with a scoop of ice cream floating in it like an ice cream soda.
Floats! Oh I love them, too. Here's a shocker: Pizzeria Uno (which, though it is a chain, has the only really edible Chicago-style pizza in the area) has a rootbeer float on its menu. When my desire for Chicago-style pizza can no longer be denied I go there and always order the float afterwards.
It sounds like that this Flipper's has more going for it than its other location, the one that closed down at 9th and Judah.
