Strike 3 at Witherspoon Grill - where is a great burger and fries around Princeton?

As I do once a month or so, I craved a burger this past weekend, and brainstormed ideas with husband on where to go for great burger with great fries (IMO great fries means on the skinnier side, crunchy, and hot). We decided on Witherspoon Grill. But after our third attempt there, we need to find new. (We eat at the bar and haven't had a hot meal there yet. Service has been below average. This past time, we asked for everything to come out when it was ready, just in case a salad would mean setting aside entrees...everything came out at the same time, and still fries were barely warm). We go to the Blue Pointe Grill pretty frequently and the fries there are GREAT and thought the place was owned by the same people - so kept trying it thinking they would figure it out. No such luck.

Has anyone got a good reco? When we are in the mood for burgers and fries, we don't need a fancy place, but definitely hot, fresh, and good.

Thanks for your suggestions!

  1. If you sit at the bar, the burgers at the Tiger Tail are nothing if not fresh. The fries are just ok. On 206 across from the Montgomery theaters. Decent ribs and good nachos also.
