Juicy Burgers ****1/2




Just south of Saratoga Springs in upstate NY you can find one of the best burger joints out there.  Well, in our humble opinion…  We can’t think of any other joint that Juicy can’t keep up with.  Just recently we hit these guys for the first time, and less than two weeks later we were back for another visit.  Yes, it’s just that good.  Throw in local ownership, and you feel even better about going here over a big chain.  

I was initially introduced to these guys through an article in the local newspaper that my Mom showed me.  They gave a great review, and subsequently my Sister and her fiance’ went and said they loved the place.  So when it came time for me to pay a visit with GWBF I was definitely pumped for it.  The burger turned out to be fantastic.  I didn’t know that May was burger month, and they had a deal on building your own burger so I went for it.  I chose beef (ground sirloin & chuck beef) over chicken and proceeded to pick my toppings.  There were a bunch to choose from but I went with lettuce, red onions, pickles, cajun spice, spicy peppers, bacon, American cheese, and cajun mayo.  It was incredible.  That cajun mayo is a force to be reckoned with.  Combined, all those ingredients made for a a great burger, and the beef itself just seemed to melt right on your tongue.  It was also a monster, and quite a struggle to finish-off.  I was immediately impressed with how will this stacked-up against Fatburger, or even Red Robin.  Besides building your own, they had 7 other options of burger combos they had created.  The fries were great, and they also had sweet potato and onion ring options.  GWBF got the sweet potato fries and I had to steal a few.  I’m pretty picky about these type of fries but they were very good.  If you actually want to go to JB and not get a burger, they do have other options as well.  They have 6 different salad options and 3 different soup choices if you want to try to eat a little healthier.  Personally though, I don’t know how you could go here and not get a burger of the juicy variety.  Oh and did I mention, they have Mt. Dew (and that infamous Saratoga Sparkling Water)!

   When it comes to cleanliness, presentation, and service, JB knocks it out of the park.  The place is new and its appearance definitely reflected that.  I personally liked the décor, it had an industrial type vibe going.  Overall though the place was spotless, from the dining area to the bathroom.  Not only that, but behind the counter everything was well organized and squeaky clean.  The menu was laid-out nice, and clearly presented all options available.  Speaking of options, they had an “order yourself” station off to the side of the counter.  This was great.  Most people stood in line, but for the brave souls that wanted to venture over to the waiting computer screen, ordering was a lot quicker.  The service was great.  We walked in and were immediately greeted, asked if we had been there before, and offered help/advice every step of the way.  After ordering we took our seats and the food was brought out to us.  We were even checked on at one point to see how things were.  A+’s all around.

   The Fast Food Addict is giving Juicy Burgers 4 ½ stars without one bit of hesitation.  The experience was so good, that I would dare say they could crush almost all competition out there..  If you live in the Saratoga Springs area of upstate NY this should be tops on your list to check out if you’re in the mood for a great burger.  But don’t take our word for it, go tonight and see for yourself (um, did we just totally rip-off Reading Rainbow??)!                                                                                                                                                                               DT
