“A Whitecastle or Krystal with Jam”
Review of Harmon's Lunch

Harmon's Lunch
Ranked #9 of 27 Restaurants in Falmouth
Restaurant details
Reviewed 12 May 2013

Restaurant reviews are inherently subjective. Ask someone where the "best" anything is and you'll most likely get just about as many answers as the people you ask. Having said that, I will not go back to Harmon's. I had what others crow about, the loaded cheeseburger. All I could taste was the VERY sweet relish. The bun was very soft like a classic New England style hot dog bun that has been steamed. The loaded comes with mustard, a carmarelized onions and a relish. The relish is so sweet I couldn't' taste the mustard, onions or meat. The only thing I noticed from the "hot-dog bun" and relish was the texture of the meat. It was just like what you experience at a Whitecastle or Krystal. lt falls apart in your mouth into crumbles. I watched the meat being cooked. It wasn't seasoned at all. It was not juicy...probably too thin for that. If you like a juicy burger you can actually taste, this is not your place. Put some some kind of sweet jam on a Krystal. If you like that, you'll love Harmon's.

Noticed that the quality of the hamburg is declining rapidly. It appears the restaurant is using the cheapest ground of meat for its burg but still charging a premium price. I know this because I have worked most of my life in Butcher shops. The hamburg seems to be the same quality of, tube hamburger, that comes shipped to Hannaford or Shaw's from meat suppliers. Far cry from the days when Harmon ground his own steak for hamburg!

Harmon's Lunch is a Falmouth landmark and wonderful treasure. Not at all fancy, but they have the best burgers and fries for miles and miles at great prices. Whenever I eat at Harmon's Lunch I feel like I'm sitting in my own kitchen having lunch with good friends. Harmon's has a loyal following and there's a good reason why. Check it out for yourself and you'll understand. You won't be disappointed.

Loaded cheeseburger with cooked onions relish mustard and ketchup about $2.50
Fresh hand-cut fries about $2.00
Getting a seat on a busy day--difficult
Special requests--not likely... Go, have fun lunch on the cheap.

Serves over 60,000 a year--great place--great folks. Real Maine--Real Good.
