Up at the Humble Cafe, they call this monster a “Humble Burger.” The patty is a whopping ten ounces of hand-formed ground beef. The square buns are made from dense, sweet bread and well-toasted to stand up to the juicy meat. Lettuce, tomato and purple onion are standard; mustard and mayo are provided on the side.
The sandwich comes with unpeeled, hand-cut crispy fries and a whole dill pickle for $7. For $8.50, you can upgrade to a bacon cheeseburger with cheddar or a patty melt with sautéed onions and melted Swiss on toasted rye. -- Robb Walsh
