The paper hat on his head seemed to give him a sense of pride resultant only from being a producer and manufacturer of something fine. A product that was produced every time with the same amount of attention, quality, and cheese. The wax pen scribbled in a diner short hand: Working Man Special, Cheese, Easy Mustard, Strawberry Shake. As the drive thru window buzzed for attention we sat on some orange short stools in the dineresque seating that lines the very small restaurant.
Burger Boy has managed to stay golden in an area that has seen its fair share of change. However tumultuous the changing crowd may be with the White Rabbit situated not far down the street, Burger Boy knows its Americana roots. The building remains untouched and unscathed and very…clean. I want to say it’s a throwback, but this building, like the burger, is the real deal.
So, now the cheese, right? This working man special not only is well deserved for a man that’s been working but it definitely puts a little proud hair on your chest. The burger and fries were delicious and the strawberry shake with sprinkles is extra precious. The prices in this place are ridiculously reasonable as well. In a time where you can pay over $10 for a burger and then have to add your fries and drink on separately, come on. But not at this burger joint. At this burger establishment you can look forward to feeding the family or hanging before a show for a reasonable and delicious price. Double cheese gives it a nostalgic 7.5.
