Lunching in Burlington at Del Frisco's

Maybe I’m biased since I live here, but I think Boston has some of the best dining experiences in the country.  Whatever your mood for food, whether it be authentic Italian in the North End, or downright delicious, juicy burgers from R.F O’Sullivans in Somerville, there’s always a place that will satisfy your stomach.

Of course it is always fun to try new places outside the city, which is what I did a few weeks a go with a few other BlogandTweetBos bloggers. Our destination was Del Frisco’s in Burlington, a short trip away by car north of Boston. Although having been to Del Frisco’s earlier in the year in the Seaport District of Boston, which gave diners a very upscale experience by way of prime steaks, classic wines and views of Boston Harbor, Del Frisco’s in Burlington gave diners a more casual experience with their comfortable red covered chairs and the open kitchen with the words “Do Right and Feed Every Man” right above.

Diving into lunch we began with Ahi Tuna Tacos, small taco bites with tuna tartare, avocado and a kick of spicy citrus mayo.

Up next, Philly Cheesesteak Eggrolls, a great tasting mix of sweet & spicy chili sauce and honey mustard.

Last but not least of our appetizer sampler, a trio of mouthwatering flatbreads: Roasted Tomato & Mozzarella, Brussel Sprout and a Mushroom Flatbread.

Now, it was time for our entrée- the Prime Cheeseburger, double patties, lettuce, red onion, tomato, pickles, “sloppy sauce”, a large portion of fries and the cutest little ketchup bottle you’ve ever seen.

Somehow, we had enough room for dessert, a small Coconut Cream Pie and an “Adult” Milkshake- Nocello Walnut Liqueur, Crème de Cacao, Chocolate Liqueur and Vanilla Ice Cream. The shake alone was perfect as an after dinner treat.

The only thing missing at Del Frisco’s in Burlington were the Boston prices. Overall, the food and atmosphere brought a very comforting experience. Next time you’re in the mood for Boston style dining with ‘outside Boston’ pricing, make a trip to Del Frisco’s in Burlington and admire those cute little ketchup bottles.

What's your favorite 'outside Boston' restaurant?
