Burgers: Simmzy’s

20100102_Restaurant-Review-Fallon_2022It is an odd bit of marketing that Simmzy’s menu and website call the place a pub, but it does feel like the South Bay’s version of one: loud and lively with plenty of beers on tap. Bangers and mash are not on the menu, but a pair of excellent burgers are – a cheeseburger with aioli and a variety of available add-ins, and a deluxe version with blue cheese, candy bacon and frizzled shallots. Either one is a glorious mess, the flavor of the juicy meat patty with smoky overtones from the grill accented with cheesy, garlicky goodness. Grilled onions, tomato and lettuce round out an exuberant version of the American favorite. This little place is nearly always packed, and these big burgers are part of the reason. — RF
