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.
