Anny’s Fine Burger

Dark is the cold night
Neon glow drives back the shadow
Reminder of day.

I love the bright colors pushing back the night.  There use to be more neon signs.  A few are saved like the Neon Majorette sign.  http://www.sohosandiego.org/reflections/2001-3/baton.htm

annies.2532Most disappear like the drive in movie theaters of old.  Anny’s Fine Burger has some lovely neon in the front.  I fear the only thing that impressed me here was the neon sign.  

annies.2519Waffle fries had a little bit of crunch and good potato flavor.

annies.2515Onion rings had a slight crunch and good onion flavor.

annies.2524Naked fried chicken wings had a very crunchy skin and had flavor of chicken seasoned with salt.

Bacon burger was cooked well done and a bit dry.  Beef had ok flavor but more seasoning would be preferable.  Could use more bacon.  With just 2 strips many bites didn’t have any bacon.  Bun had a little bit of a sweet flavor and was good.

annies.2525I prefer Anny’s to Burger King or McDonald’s but the chicken wings at Golden City a few doors down are much more tantalizing.  Next time I’m gonna come by to admire the beautiful neon on my way to Golden City.

    I miss the neon signs too. Always have admired the neon majorette sign.

      You should get a tripod and take photos quick while there are still good ones!

    The onions ring batter looks a bit soft. Did they offer any ranch with it? I’ve been craving fried chicken wings lately – it’s all about the crispy skin and seasoning for me. I don’t think I’ve ever had the wings at Golden City. It’s been ages since I’ve been to GC but I remember seeing Annie’s next door. I like their menu chalkboard !

      The onions rings had crunch right out of the kitchen. I think they gave me some ranch to go with the rings but I tossed it. Golden City has good wings. You should give them a try! Khan’s Cave and Streetcar Merchants have my fav wings.

  3. You misspelled Anny! I went within the last couple of months and I believe the burgers were super messy but not so flavorful… =/
