HARRISONBURG, Va. — Since my first Cuban Burger trip, I have been several more times and ascertained that it does have mojitos. I ordered two, sat at the bar and pretended I was Hemingway.
The second mojito had mushed blackberries, which I was I told were bought at Harrisonburg’s farmers market.
In a post-mojito trip for lunch this week, I had a Cuban sandwich and fries. I asked if the fries were cut in-house. The server said no, but that they should be at some point.
Logistically, hand-cut fries are harder to serve than the frozen, out-of-the-bag variety sadly meted out by most restaurants. There is the actual cutting of potatoes into French-fry shapes, and then the overnight, de-starching soak. But while Cuban Burger’s fries-on-the-side aren’t cut in-house, the matchstick fries that top the burgers are.
My date had a veggie burger and fried plantains.
