So you wanta Hamburger Hey?
Anyone catch the documentary on PBS the other night about burger joints in the USA? Only PBS can get away with such a mundane topic and turn it into something really interesting.
I could see myself hoping on the “K” in the near future to search out these eateries of various flavors and color. The documentary went beyond just describing each individual burger offering, they went on to explain the history of the establishment itself and the generations of family involved over the years.
Some of you may have eaten at some of these already. My hopes are to do the same some day…ALL OF THEM.
Ted’s in Meridin ….STEAMED BURGERS! I gotta try these bad boys!
Louis Lunch in New Haven….made in vertical (1899) ovens served on bread…Don’t ask for Ketchup!
Solly’s in Glendale…Best in the State…A STICK of BUTTER on each burger! OUCH.
Wheel In Drive In in Milwaukee…They serve all burgers with PEANUT BUTTER on them! YUM!
CHEEZBOOORGER! CHIPS, NO FRIES!
The Billy Goat Tavern….. Yep, the one and only as seen on SNL.
The Bobcat Bite in Santa Fe…….Each served with a special CHILE sause.
The Meers Store……Pretty much a ghost town. Co-owned by Willy Nelson.
