Mighty Fine Time for a Burger

After 6 months of working in the Heights, I am still discovering new burger spots.  Recently,  I read about Mytiburger.  Since 1967, this retro burger joint has served up "Texas-style burgers, fries, homemade onion rings, and just about anything else you can put bacon and cheese on".  Why wouldn't I want to check it out?!

Walking inside, I was greeted with several "Welcome to Mytiburger" chants from their staff.  I ordered their Mytiburger with cheese, adding my usual lettuce, onion, and light mayo.  Then I was asked if I wanted fries, onion rings, tator tots, sweet potato fries, etc.  My choice, plus a medium drink was included for $7.25!  I chose the sweet potato fries, paid, and waited for my order. This burger blogger was hungry!

It was during the waiting period that I observed the crowd.  A gentleman wearing a high school team polo; two guys dining together, with one on the phone talking about computers, and the other excusing himself to check on somthing at the service station across the street. A variety of neighborhood locals enjoyed their burgers at the other tables.  There was no question that this was a favorite of the locals!

My name was called - I went to the counter to retreive the bag containing my burger and fries - back to the table I went.  That burger was classic old-school - toasted bun, thin seasoned patty, melted cheese!   Reminiscent of burgers from my childhood, I literally was taken back to that time, in the late 1960s, when I was enjoying a burger with my Dad.  Bite after bite, never putting the burger down, I ate with pleasure.  Every now and then, I'd eat a couple sweet potato fries, but the main attraction here was the burger.  

While this burger was neither original or unique, it was satisfying and tasty.  As I walked out, I told my new friend at the counter that I would be back and I would bring friends.  She, who had eaten here since she was a child herself, seemed so pleased that we'd be meeting again.  This place was friendly, familiar, and welcoming.  Add a good burger to that mix, and who wouldn't want to visit often?  Do you want to join me next time?
