MR. BARTLEY'S BURGER COTTAGE
1246 Massachusetts Avenue
Cambridge MA (Harvard Square)
First time I tried to visit Bartley's they were closed to go snow-shoeing. Bad for me, good for them. Tried another time and they were closed for some other reason. Finally made it. Way worth the effort. Agewise a piker by Yale's Louis Lunch standards, but Harvard and MIT students have made it a traditional haunt for the past 40 years.
Bartley's does everything very well. The mile high burgers - Viagra Burger on the Viagra and the *** Cheney Burger on the right. The variations upon a lime rickey - a raspberry lime rickey to the right. Their frappes - I had an Elvis, a chocolate frappe with banana and crumbled Reese's Peanutbutter cups. And the sides, including the best sweet potato fries I've happened upon.
