Burger Throwdown on Plymouth
The nineteen burgers on the menu are distinguished mostly by their toppings--all but one begin with the same one-third-pound patty (the exception is a gargantuan one-pound burger, so big that if you eat all of it you get your photo on the wall and website). Though the burgers, which start at around $3.50, are by far the best-selling item, the menu also features wraps and some Middle Eastern favorites, like hummus and fattoush. All the meat is halal (prepared according to Islamic law), and the chicken burgers are made of fresh, unprocessed chicken.
Famous Hamburger seats sixty inside, with table service. Hider and Haidar have also added a side porch with hookahs that will seat twenty-four. It will open as soon as the plastic shades and heaters arrive.
