Stopped by Kind Burger in Fair Haven for lunch today. It’s a rather plain store front next to a barber shop and across from the Acme in Fair Haven:
The interior is also pretty basic. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you. Service was reasonably prompt considering I was the first person there today, but people who arrived a few minutes later got their food much faster.
All the burgers are fresh, they have a number of choices including Angus, Kobe, Chicken, Portobello and veggie.
I ordered a double Angus burger (4oz patties, $ 8.49) and fries ($ 2.99):
The burger was good. It arrived on a potato roll with fresh red leaf lettuce, tomato, pickle, red onion, mayo and mustard (Dijon). It had a nice char, was reasonably juicy and tasted home made.
The fries however were a bit of a disappointment. The portion size was generous and could have served two or three easily. They were served in a small brown paper bag, which was a clever touch. But the fries themselves were frozen shoestrings, so nothing special. It would have been better with a smaller portion of hand cut fries, and more in keeping with what they appear to be trying for.
They also don’t have an ice maker, so the plain water I ordered was really plain. Our water around here is just does not taste well this time of year, and also eats toilets, so it could have used some chillin to hold down the funk.
Overall at $12.30 with tax I would not characterize this as a great value , but that was mostly due to the sub par fries.
They also have a variety of dogs, chikn fingers, cole slaw, baked beans and shakes, which is nice to see on a fast foodish kind of menu.
I would consider going back for the burger, but probably not in a big hurry since Barnacles is just down the road…
