Burger @ The Cantab Lounge, Central Sq., Cambridge

Balance is not in their vocabulary -- this is huge burger dripping with grease -- it means business. Cooked to exactly medium rare. Got mine with swiss and grilled onions (wish there was more onions). A very good rendition that might benefit from a touch more beefy flavour and salt (although it's easily remedied with ketchup), but no sense nitpicking too much at a $6.50 burger that is quite exceptional. Comes with the works: cole slaw, pickle, crinkle-cut fries that might be standard Sysco issue, but fried very nicely -- crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. Awesome deal overall.

    Glad you liked it. For my money The Cantab is the fairly respectable heir to the Tim's legacy.

      Yeah, imho it's definitely a respectable heir to Tim's.

      I had the burger a couple of Saturdays ago, but forgot to comment due to a post-burger haze.

      It was excellent. That "juicy-run-down-my-chin" burger I so loved at Tim's. Medium-rare on the rare side---perfectly cooked.

        They do one with bologna & so forth on it, too, which is decadent and evil and delicious.
