Easy as 1, 2, 3.....

It's been a while since I went out for drinks with friends. In fact, I think the last trip out was with Blonde Beth, to the Australian! My friend Holly P suggested last week that we get together THIS week, and she proposed a place so cheap that even *I* could swing it!

123, Burger Shot, Beer is a place known for its 1-dollar burgers, 2-dollar shots, and 3-dollar beers. I'd been LAST summer with Holly P for a coworker's goodbye party (3 jobs ago!), and it was crammed with so many people, we waited almost an hour for our burgers, and it was just a big night o' chaos. However, the prices cannot be ignored, so we went back last night.

Sure, you have to order at least 3 of these burgers at a time, but I am more than okay with that. They are made with Angus beef, sautéed onions, and come with slices of tart pickles on the side (I HAVE to have pickles on my burgers). Holly P & I ate 2each while we waited for the rest of our group to arrive. We also started with mixed drinks (5 bucks for a big ol' rita? Olé!), but eventually moved to the 3-dollar beer. You just can't beat a 3 dollar beer, peeps! Okay, maybe you can...let me know. ;)

We also ordered some waffle fries and eventually regular fries: stick with the waffles. They're seasoned, but not overly so. The fries were a little too meh for me. The outside is super crispy and the inside is a little airy--some folks might love these, but I prefer the meatier, tastier waffle fries. And yes, I prefer to put ketchup on each individual fry as I eat it, ESPECIALLY if the ketchup comes in a squeeze bottle!

My friend Blonde Beth also ordered the fried ravioli, which was okay (breading is a little thick), but it would have been much better with some marinara sauce, which this place does not offer. Le sigh.

One of the best things about this place is how empty it was at 6pm on a weeknight! We had no problem getting a table (though my legs are a little too short to dangle comfortably--I wish they had a little ledge where I could have rested my toes--I was shifting uncomfortably all night!) But THE best part was getting to catch up with my friends--as Holly P says, "Burger: 1 dollar. Shot: 2 dollars. Beer: 3 dollars. Catching up with friends: Priceless."
