Note: This restaurant CLOSED in 2009
First ~ I have no Pictures as I was on a work lunch.
Second ~ I’m not even sure if this applies to all Bennigans. Bennigans people speak up if it does.
Third ~ yes Bennigans is a chain, I don’t care, just shut up about that already.
Fourth ~ This is just my opinion, not Dan’s, Susan’s, Misty’s, or Phil’s, or yours. MINE, just get over it.
Are you ready?
$4.99 Burgers On Wednesdays.
Now this is at the Bennigans in Point Pleasant. I don’t know about the Town Center, I’ve long given up on that place, but if they have it there then they should be advertising the hell out of it.
Nevertheless, I’m not sure how long this special will run but it’s running now. I was up in Point Pleasant not long after this Bennigans opened on a Wednesday and they were running this special. Well fast forward to yesterday, and they’re still running it.
For $4.99 you get one of their regular Burger meals… including fries. I was served a shit load. The burgers are 8oz – that’s half of a pound for you that do not know. All of the toppings they offer…including cheese.
Their burgers range from $7.49 to $10.99 with most of them priced at $8.49 to $8.99. The ONLY burger not included is the $10.99 which is a whole pound of burger.
I chose the Guinness Burger for $8.99, and I had water for a drink. Hey I can get out of here for less than $6. One co-worker chose the Buffalo Burger (not buffalo meat but includes a Buffalo Wing Sauce – yea I know mischevious advertising), and another chose the Chipotle Burger. Each of these were in the $8 + price range. BUT TODAY THEY WERE $4.99!!!!!!
How was it? I ordered mine with everything included on the burger, the little onion crisps, bacon, lettuce, pickles, the guinness sauce. I ordered no cheese, but IT WAS INCLUDED – that goes out to McDonalds and all the cheap ass places that charge for this famous American topping.
My burger patty: I don’t think it was frozen. I’m not an expert, but I’m pretty good at detecting that. If it was frozen well you’re not going to get much better unless you patty it out, freeze it, thaw it, and cook it yourself. I wish it was grilled, but it was fried.
How did it taste? Well I ordered mine Medium. They didn’t offer Medium Rare…”Against State Law” I was told. Horse Shit, I say. It’s against their attorney’s advice and nothing more. The bun was a nice Sara Lee TYPE bun, with sesame seeds.
Nevertheless for $4.99 it was damn good. That’s also considering that medium is typically a little dry for me.
You know what? For the Lunch Special (and only the Lunch Special) I’m going to give it FOUR FORKS.
Editor’s Note: We called the Bennigan’s Charleston Town Center location to find out whether they also have a burger special on Wednesdays. Turns out, they do have the special but it’ll cost you $1 more in Charleston. On Wednesdays, you can order any burger off the menu (except the one-pounder) for $5.99.
