i posted a photo on instagram last night. it was not food related at all, and somewhat randomly, it was liked by a place called weekend dreams burgers and grill. this intrigued me, so i checked their profile, and then looked them up on yelp. the photos of food looked pretty good, the reviews were positive, so i decided to check them out for lunch.
in fresno, they are the located in one of those weird, where is that spots. west ashlan. you look at the address, it doesn't help. you check the map, and get a general idea, but still aren't sure. which side of 99 is it on? to answer that, it is west of 99. it is in an unassuming little strip mall.
on to the food. when i saw they had a pastrami burger on the menu, i knew i would be ordering that. i'm a sucker for a pastrami burger i also saw they had chicken wings, so i thought i may give them a try. the wings come in regular, spicy, and i think teriyaki.
the prices are pretty consistent with other local burger spots. their menu is pretty big, with a lot of variety. honestly, if they didn't have some items that are no brainers for me, i might have had trouble figuring out what to get.
the pastrami burger was very good. the bun is pretty standard, and it comes with mayo, mustard, lettuce, tomato and onion. i had mine without the onion and tomato. i thought the burger was nicely cooked, the pastrami was good. together it all worked well.
when i was ordering, i had to choose between the regular and spicy wings. the counter person told me the spicy was pretty hot, but she also said she is kinda wimpy with regards to spiciness. i figured i would give the spicy a try. yep, they were spicy. nose running spicy. and while they may be more than some people can handle, i thought they were good. the spiciness was there, but it also had a good hot wing flavor that was more than just 'oh crap, that's spicy.'
overall, i had a good experience at weekend dreams. i would definitely go back, and i hope that as fresno grows around that area they check this spot out.
