The best hamburger place in town sits in the heart of downtown. At $11-$13, they aren't cheap, but that money goes toward locally sourced, hormone-free beef and produce that often comes from the local Community Supported Agriculture Project to make burgers as guilt-free as they are delicious. All burgers are served on a toasted English muffin, so as not to overwhelm the patty with bread. Specials change with the season, and are always a gamble. In the spring, look for nopalitos burgers, in the summer, the bourbon-soaked peach burger. Even their cheese sandwich is gourmet, with pesto and several kinds of cheese. Various beers on tap complete the meal.
The biggest drawback is the lack of seating. The building itself is claustrophobic, despite vaulted ceilings, and in the summer the outdoor seating is always full. Expect a long wait in the evenings and on weekends, and to sit at a table with strangers and their dogs when you are seated. Don't worry: It's worth the wait.
