Killen’s Burgers is a bit out of the way, but worth the trip if you keep a few things in mind. Chiefly, you need to be aware of temps. Ronnie Killen’s local clientele prefers a more thoroughly cooked burger, so the kitchen tends toward medium. For the best burger experience, request yours medium rare. You will be rewarded with an aggressively seasoned and seared patty positively oozing with beefy juice. The loosely packed patties have wonderful texture, and the accoutrements are well chosen and applied in judicious quantity. Killen’s doesn’t focus on outlandish burgers, preferring to let simple but impeccable quality speak for itself. In addition to a fairly standard slate of burgers, Killen’s also affords the opportunity to dabble in more luxurious blends, from dry aged beef to akaushi. Look for off-menu specials, like a burger run through with pork belly and topped with slices of the stuff, griddle-seared until crisp on the outside, meltingly tender within. If you’re not looking for a burger, the chicken-fried steak sandwich is a pinnacle of the form, the shatteringly battered steak dressed simply with mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. It is disarmingly delicious.
