Finally back with another food trip posts starting with a food spot at Lilac Street. But first of all, I would like to apologize for the lack of food posts since I’ve been busy with.. Life.. And I’ve been focusing a lot on beauty stuff. But soon, I’ll be back with usual food posts so watch out for that. :)

So a few weeks ago, I decided to visit Lilac St again since there are now a lot of new restaurants to try. Visited Uncle Sam’s Diner since I’ve been passing this place a lot but never tried. It’s actually located in front of Puregold Lilac and on the 2nd floor (landmark: Mercury Store).

Uncle Sam’s Diner specializes on the best juicy lucy burgers, pasta, steaks and milkshakes.

Place was good, spacious and clean. Though I think interiors were a bit simple and I was looking for that diner feels.

It was a pay as you order basis so we went up to the cashier to order and pay. Waiting time for our orders were not good. We had to wait for 20-30 mins before our orders came. We were so bored that so we turned our attention instead to the television. The staffs were so loud and I can’t hear the sound from the tv. As in super chika sila na nasasapawan na nila ung malakas na volume ng tv!!!

Menu below:

Here’s what we ordered:

Bacon Mushroom York 1/3 Pound (Php160)
“Bun, bacon, caramelized onion, lettuce, cheese sauce, juicy lucy patty”

Uncle Sam’s Ultimate 1/3 Pound with fries and drinks (Php260)
“Bun, lettuce, caramelized onions, tomatoes, bacon, egg, juicy lucy patty”
- Serving size were okay but the taste of both burgers were disappointing. Burgers lacked its juiciness and flavor. The patties were dry and bland. :(

Cookies and Dreams (Php129)
“Cookies and cream milkshake, oreo cookies”
- Definitely milky and delicious! Not doubt on their milkshakes as it was really good.

Overall, the experience dining in at Uncle Sam’s was okay. I think they should improve on their burgers and maybe train their staffs on etiquette. Milkshakes are recommended.
