Open since 1952, Hunter House Hamburgers had a big sign out front that they had been named the best burgers in Michigan. I felt obliged to take the challenge. Like Carter’s before it, and Motz’s after it, it’s all about the onions.
In fact, the T-shirts at Hunter House say “Onion breath is better than no breath.” I guess everyone needs a motto. Apparently, they also take their breakfast serving hours quite seriously. I REALLY don’t like onions, but I decided if all the cool kids were eating them….. So I ordered a double with onions and a small cheese fry.
I’ll have to say that I can’t judge this burger fairly. The onions were SO BAD, that even after I scraped them off, this burger still didn’t taste good. It also was a little pink in the center – not the best sign when the patty is only an eighth of a pound. On top of that, the cheese fries were awful. The fries themselves were bland and the cheese tasted worse than the sauce they pour onto nachos at the dollar movies.
