Blondie’s Burgers – Provincetown

31 Aug

During our last stay at Cape Cod, we spent Saturday hanging out with friends in Provincetown (P-Town, for those not in the know). It’s become a tradition for a group of us to pick a weekend usually late in the summer to take the ferry to P-Town from Boston early in the morning and take the last one home. The past 2 years Hubs and I have taken it as an opportunity to spend the entire weekend there.

Last year, we ate lunch at Burger Queen, and I wasn’t too impressed with it. So this year we decided to have a late lunch at Blondie’s Burgers.

The yellow building certainly catches your attention, especially when it tells you what you can find inside.

Blondie’s, you had me at Creamy Dreamy Thick Shakes.

The menu is a healthy size, where you can chose from a hand full of burgers, hot dogs, fries, and of course delicious shakes.

After a bit, we decided to split a Slushie instead because we wanted to save room for dessert somewhere else. Sadly, the slushie was just a mixture of orange soda and ice, blended in a blender. While it was tasty, at around $3.50, you are better off skipping it and heading straight for the shakes.

I managed to sneak a sip of my mother in laws friend’s chocolate shake, and my fears of it being to heavy were thrown out of the window. Just the right amount of chocolate, ice cream, and milk shakey goodness. Will definitely be getting one of these next time!

For my main meal, I went with the burger special of the day, which was a Greek inspired burger consisting of 2 patties, sauteed onions, feta cheese, tomatoes, and mushrooms.

I truly love burgers like this, with the extra small patties. They just seem to exude more juiciness than thicker burgers. They don’t have to cook as long, so they don’t get a rubbery exterior that thicker burgers get. Blondie’s gets it right by sticking most of the ingredients in the middle of the burger, and the feta cheese melted nicely into the burger.

We decided to share an order of their hand cut french fries, and we generously slathered them in malted vinegar. Other options include your standard ketchup, as well as mustard, salt, pepper and cumin. I saved a small handful of fries and doused them with cumin, as I love the stuff, but Hubby sadly does not.

These fries were excellent, crispy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside. I particularly enjoyed the darker fries, as you can see 1 or 2 pictures above. Once we added a little extra salt to them, they were perfection.

Joe loves to get hot dogs for some reason (especially at burger centric places. I don’t really understand it). I didn’t manage to snap a picture of it but we got his with sauerkraut and mustard, and he looked like a happy camper munching on his hot dog.

Blondie’s was definitely a huge step up from Burger Queen and you are better off getting your burger fill at Blondie’s, where the smiles are brighter, the burgers are better, and the shakes are creamier.

    I like to call P-Town “The Happiest Place on Earth!” No summer is completely unless we get to spend at least one weekend there. I have seen Blondie’s so many times, sadly, our sustenance in P-Town almost always ends up being a slice of pizza between bar hop stops….

      Seriously, I love P-Town. It’s just so many amazing things all rolled into one.

    Is Blondie’s new? Why have I never seen it?! That Greek burger sounds awesome. We always make sure to go to the Portuguese bakery for malassadas and The Purple Feather for gelato when we’re in P-Town.

      I think it is relatively new, I honestly don’t remember seeing it last year. And I religiously go to Provincetown Portuguese Bakery for malasadas and a bunch of other things. They are AMAZING when they come right out of the fryer.

      apparently, according to ‘rumor’, they pre cook their burgers for the rushes throughout the summer, so take that to the palate. However, regardless of whether that is true, and from someone who is in the know, it probably is at times, they are always, and I mean always delicious. The sweet potato fries are ‘mehhh’ but their Rodeo Burger is just superb, and even though the staff late nights have to deal with the neanderthal drunks and queens from Boston and NY who are rude and downright nasty, the staff there, including the cooks, are very, very friendly.
