Me and the Hubster tried Timothy Dean Burger located at The Boulevard in Largo, MD last Friday night and I was pleased. I know the restaurant opened earlier this year but I like to give a new restaurant a little time to find its footing before I go in to grub with them.
Mr. Timothy Dean himself was there having light conversation, tending to the customers, and instructing staff; a good sign. It’s a very quaint and comfortable spot, just right for an informal gathering. There’s ample parking, which is what brought us out. I wanted to eat in DC, but after circling a couple of places looking for parking, we decided to find an eatery closer to home. I believe this frustration to be one shared with the masses and a great impetus for supporting local Prince George’s County restaurants. We need more of them though. And not the big box kind like TGIFridays/Ruby Tuesdays/Applebees. We need some stand alone, authentic restaurants, but I digress.
I’ll keep this review short and sweet. They have good burgers. You can taste that the meat is of high quality. My sweet potato fries definitely could have been crisper, but that’s my personal preference. The bacon on my cheeseburger was in good portion, fried until crisp. Another personal preference of mine is bread that isn’t dense. The burger’s bun was a bit large and thick but not so much so that I’d just chunk it in the trash. Lettuce and tomato were cool, fresh and crisp, which matters a great deal to me. I hate burgers with warm, soggy veggies on top: YUCK!
Service was pleasant and accommodating. Even the people out dining that evening were nice. Certainly I’ll be going back to try more menu items as my blasted diet permits.
