Fodor's Review

This all-American luncheonette on the National Register of Historic Places claims to be the birthplace of the hamburger. Its first-rate burgers are cooked in an old-fashioned upright broiler and served with either a slice of tomato or cheese on two pieces of toast. As most customers who come from far and wide for these tasty morsels agree, it doesn't get much better than that. Thursday to Saturday, the place is open until 2 am.
