Finding the perfect burger in the Wellfleet area had become a quest for me. They had ranged from horrible hockey pucks to mediocre Bubba Burgers regardless of price. When I was told about FINALLY JP'S Thursday night special, frankly I was skeptical. $13 for a burger or fish sandwich and a beer. How good could it be?
I was stunned and delighted to discover the burger is organic Angus beef, cooked to perfection. (I like mine rare and it was.) Served with carmelized onions, and a choice of cheese (I had habanero jack) and french fries. The beer was any beer not just a domestic on tap. I had an imported non-alcoholic and my companion had a Stella Artois. (Her burger was a perfect medium-rare by the way.)
The service was friendly and prompt. The ladies' was immaculate and the general atmosphere was comfortably casual without a hint of tacky.
I look forward to returning very soon to try the rest of the menu. The Vegetable Napoleon ($20) or the Scallops Linguine with mushrooms ($24) may be what I try next. I hear the prime rib is very good there as well.
