Good Stuff Eatery? More like Great Stuff Eatery! GSE prides itself on handcrafted burgers, fries, and shakes using only high-quality ingredients.

I went with the Farmhouse Cheeseburger, which includes dairy-fresh American cheese, farm-fresh red ruby tomatoes, grilled onions, crisp lettuce, and pickles served on a sweet, buttery, soft, freshly-baked Pennsylvania Dutch bun and the "Good Stuff Sauce" (think Shake Shack's Shack Sauce) The Farmhouse Cheeseburger is juicy, mega-tasty, and not too oily. Size-wise, it was petite but, to my surprise, filled me up. The Good Stuff Sauce is a mash-up of thousand-island dressing and another secret ingredients, making for a light, tangy taste.

To correctly complement the burger, Spike's Village Fries are a must, coming blanketed with fresh thyme, rosemary, and sea salt. If found the fries to be a little under-salted, so, depending on your palate, you may want to shake a little more on. If you're into dipping sauces, they have a wide array to help better enjoy your herb fries. Some local favorites are the mango and sriracha mayo.

This meal would not have been complete without a milkshake. I got the Milky Way Malt, which was rich and thick, packed with tons of chocolate/malt, which is good, but I would probably have been happier if I'd went with the Banana Fosters milkshake, being a fan of the fruit.

Another burger joint added to the Fat Bastard list.
