While looking for one restaurant, my husband and I happened upon another one and decided to eat there after driving circles and walking blocks with no success on the one we were trying to find. Meehans backyard dining area is where we landed after just looking up to find the closest available. What a treat it was. We loved the outdoor seating and comfy adarondak chairs (large enough for me to curl up in while I ate), heavy concrete outdoor tables, brick & concrete patio floor, soft jazz playing on the outdoor speakers, nice to look at outdoor greenery (casual but perfect), and near perfect afternoon weather. We opted for the backyard burger & fries, $9.95 on the menu, thinking the price was a little high, but we were hungry & a little tired, plus unsweetened ice tea for both of us. When the burgers arrived, they were huge, probably 1/3 lb, grilled well like we like, fresh lettuce & 2 thick tomato slices, grilled bun, and added grilled onions & mushrooms on one burger. The fries were the largest "french" fries I have seen in awhile (definitely not steak fries but long unskinny french fries) sprinkled with a little sea salt & chive. There was no mustard or mayo, and no need for either. The fries were not overly salty (we're salt free & there was no noticeable salt flavor) and were delicious. The burgers were very close to a true backyard burger off the grill, and the bill was for burgers only, no extra cost for the beverages. It's true we had a burger & fries, but these were probably the best & biggest burgers & fries either of us has had, plus no add-on cost for the beverage. We managed to waste about 1.5 hours at our table (with no pressure by staff to 'turn' the table) and were full and very relaxed by the end. The flavor & size of the burger, the flavor & size of the fries, the relaxed outdoor venue with just the right music at just the right volume, and the free add-on beverages brought our total cost for 2 to $25 with a customary gratuity, and was perfect. Truly excellent!
