Elaborate burgers are the thing here, along with phenomenal onion rings, sweet potato fries, and frappes (the regional name for milkshakes). This family business is a high-ceilinged, crowded room plastered with memorabilia. Tables are elbow to elbow and there’s often a line to get in. Anything you can think of to put on ground beef is available, from Swiss cheese to grilled pineapple to pickled onions. Good dishes that don’t involve meat include veggie burgers, veggie chili, and creamy, garlicky hummus. Closed Sunday and Monday. Cash only.
