Donovan's of Bayside

I happened to be in Bayside for work the other day so I called up my friend Lynch (who lives in bayside) to see if he wanted to meet up for drink.

We had both just gotten back from vacation and were having a hard time getting back into the swing of things.

A little beer always helps that!

We started out sitting outside of Press 195 and then decided to move over to Donovan’s once it started to get chilly and had a seat at the bar.

I have always wanted to try a Donovan’s burger since I heard they were fantastic.

However I had just had an enormous lunch and didn’t think I could do it justice.

So instead we decided to get an order of their mini burgers to share.

Look how cute they came out with the little olive on top!

MMM…These mini burgers were good!

The patty itself was thicker than most mini burgers, and although it was cooked a little bit more than my liking, the meat still retained a ton of juice and had a nice overall flavor.

Each one came dressed with ketchup on the bottom and a perfectly sized pickle on the top.

I love it when the pickle fits the burger to perfection. Each bite deserves some.

Overall I thought the burgers were awesome!

Most mini burgers come out looking like some hockey pucks and taste like crap.

Donovan’s definitely delivered.

I want to go back and try their regular burger to get a real taste of what they have to offer.

Bayside has some cute little bars and restaurants. If only I could get Mr. T out of Manhattan once in a we could have a whole new world open to us.
