An unusual blog post in that we ended up not eating here: I found George’s Bar & Grill (World Famous Burgers & Insults) on the Hamburger America app, as we rolled into Palm Springs.  It was 4:45 and the app said they closed at 5:30, so we drove eastward.  I should have taken it as […]

Irv’s Burgers is part of the reason that this blog exists, in a weird, convoluted way.  This all started with a visit to Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage in Cambridge, where I first heard about Hamburger America.  That was a little over nine years ago.   Like at Mr. Bartley’s, there was a placard on the counter, […]

As I planned a trip to Myrtle Beach, I realized that Columbia was about midway – and I had recently heard about Bernie’s Fried Chicken.  I had thought about stopping on the way up, but that was on Sunday – the one day of the week they are closed.    We were heading home on […]
