Best Burgers in a Fish House - 2005
McCormick's Fish House and Bar
Everyone knows about the great seafood at McCormick's: the daily airlifts of fresh fish, the weekly and seasonal specials, the talented kitchen that's there to put everything together, the terrific dining room and bar spaces tucked into the corner of the classic Oxford Hotel. But one of the lesser-known winners on this decidedly fishy menu are the burgers, which are everything a meat-lovin' man needs: a soft, chewy bun, fresh fixings and a good-sized patty that doesn't turn to boot leather, even at medium-well. Making a good burger better yet is the price, if you happen to hit McCormick's during one of its two daily happy hours. From 3 to 6 p.m. any day, and from 9 to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 10 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday, the burger is offered as one of the dozen-plus items on the $1.95 bar menu.
