Mason Grill

Review 29 @ Stop 35
Mason Grill
124 E. Main Street. (Mason)

Bucky suggested trying the Mason Grill to his burger cohorts because of the outstanding gyro he had for lunch one a recent trip. Knowing that Bucky is fussy and cantankerous at times, Freddie and Wolfy were certain of one thing – it must be clean!

Unfortunately with Wolfy having studious obligations, Freddie met Bucky at the Mason Grill and wondered, “Wasn’t this a convenient store in earlier times?” Not be fooled, it’s neat, nicely decorated atmosphere offering booths and tables for its breakfast, lunch, and dinner customers. There was a good lunch crowd of all ages on that weekday noon hour.

The hamburger ($3.50) is served with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and mayo. The medium-thickness patty is accompanied on a large, toasted bun that some would consider too large for the patty. The handmade patty was moist, and in the spirit of Wolfy, the duo didn’t detect gristle.

On the downside, the lack of seasoning disappointed Freddie, and Bucky described the shredded lettuce as, “Enough to bed a rabbit.”

Overall, the Mason Grill was a pleasant surprise. With its breakfast anytime approach as well as other offerings as omelets, double-decker sandwiches, salads, hot sandwiches, and some standard dinner items, the Mason Grill has something for everyone. Although the burger was OK, Freddie wants to return to try the Buck-Recommended gyro.
