MOE’S BURGER JOINT: 1340 EAST PUTNAM AVENUE, OLD GREENWICH
Earlier this week, Moe’s Burger Joint quietly moved into the space formerly occupied by Donnie’s Deli – and conveniently located a few steps from the Greenwich Time offices. I stopped by and had Paulie take my order.
The menu is straightforward – burgers, dogs, sides, and shakes – but personalization is the name of the game. Instead of giving you 10 different burger combinations from which to choose, you just start with your burger and add from their list of toppings. The toppings include seven types of cheese, egg, chili, thick-cut bacon, sriracha, and more.
I gave one of their shakes a try (Oreo), but I’m definitely going to check out the lime Rickey next time I go, as it sounds very similar to something called a “lime squash” I was pounding all last week to keep myself from boiling alive in Saint Lucia.
I know burger joints might be a little bit on the skid since they hit the big time about a year ago, but Moe’s is good and the price is right.
