We were hungry, I was tired from an extra long work week and it was too hot to be fussing with nutrition.
With an easy, light meal in mind we headed to The Pump Station downtown. After perusing the menu, we sadly agreed we probably should have gone to Browns Brewing in Troy instead. Why do restaurants offer everything from burgers, to nachos, to lobster Mac and cheese. You can’t offer everything at the risk of everything being mediocre. And that’s what happened.
They ranged from terrible to mediocre. Only one was palatable to consider ordering on it’s own. Two tasted buttery like blue moon, two were similar to coors light, one was dark and rich, two were hoppy bitter IPAs and one was like the leftover suds from a million IPAs combined. I remembered liking their beer in the past…what happened??
I ordered a burger, medium rare, with pepper jack cheese, lettuce, and tomato.
Ain’t no rare burger there buddy. It was fine. The fries were fine. Boyfriends mashed potatoes were cold. Mediocre meal all around.
