So, we're driving from Seattle to Astoria, OR, and are starting to get hungry. As we make a turn, we see "Clark's" and "voted best burgers." It seemed liked we were out in the middle of nowhere and we weren't sure when we might see something else, so we did a u-turn and went back. There weren't many people in the restaurant (it was about 2 p.m.), and we went in and looked at the menu. It quickly became obvious that you should order a burger. Judging by the awards on the wall, this is their specialty. So, despite the fact that we weren't really that hungry, we each ordered a burger.
When our server took our order, she asked, most emphatically, "What ... you're not having a shake? Our ice cream is homemade!" Again, despite the fact that we weren't really all that hungry, once my husband heard that their chocolate milkshakes were made with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup (a classic "black and white"), we couldn't refuse. Well, the milkshake was perfect - creamy, vanilla-y, chocolate-y. We split a small, and it was wonderful and just right for 2 people.
Then the burger arrived. This is not the thickest burger you'll see, but it is flavorful and juicy. The "goop" that they offer as part of the regular toppings (including lettuce, tomato, sweet onion, and cheese if you like) is apparently what makes their burgers. It's a combination of mayo, mustard, and pickle relish. They're right ... it really does make the burger and I don't usually put all that on a burger. When the basket came to the table, it looked huge, but it was a soft, seeded bun that had been griddled. It had a nice crunch and balanced the tang of the goop and the crunch of the sweet onion. Sublime. Go here. Have the goop. Have the milkshake. You won't be disappointed.
