Best Burger: Thurman Cafe

From the March 29, 2012 edition

It seems like every year the Thurman Cafe takes the prize for best burger in the city. It’s no surprise considering its signature burger — The Thurmanator — has received national acclaim from numerous food critics and was featured on the premiere season of the Travel Channel’s “Man v. Food.” With two three-quarter pound patties, lettuce, tomato, pickle, banana peppers, bacon, sauteed mushrooms & onions, ham, mozzarella, cheddar and American cheeses the Thurmanator really has it all. But if you’re not looking to chow down on everything under the sun, there are more than a dozen other specialty burgers.
