GoodEats: Burgers made your way
With school rapidly approaching, I thought it was only natural to write about one of my absolute Towson favorites. This next installment of GoodEats features a real deal burger spot, cranking sandwiches out by the boatload. This restaurant is Burger Bros., located off of Allegheny Avenue, situated right next to the breakfast haven, Towson Hot Bagels, Towson students religiously eat on the weekends. The restaurant may be tiny in size, but the food is for real.
The restaurant’s layout includes a few tables and a counter with a dual job: To help the customer order a burger masterpiece and to house the kitchen responsible for that masterpiece. The menu is surprisingly extensive for a burger joint, including everything from sandwiches, salads and side dishes, to specialty drinks.
The amazing thing about a made-to-order burger restaurant is that you have all the power to create and customize what you want. They give you the base and you can add on whatever toppings and sauces to build the best burger.
I would have to recommend starting off with one of their classic 6-ounce hand-patted burgers, or if you are trying to be a little healthier, go with the turkey burger (it is juicy and flavorful, plus you won’t feel as bad about the nutrition). Now, if you really want to try something a little different, go with the crispy buffalo chicken sandwich customized to your liking.
In my mind, nothing goes better with burgers than a side of fries or, as Burger Bros. calls them, “spuds.” These beauties are hand cut and prepared fresh daily. They are the perfect type of fries, both crispy and perfectly salty.
The kicker when it comes to Burger Bros. is that students can purchase a sandwich and drink every Sunday half-off during the semester. You can’t beat that!
The average sandwich (burger or chicken) costs between $5 and $7. Fries and onion rings will run you $2 – $6 for their different sizes and up to $12 for the monster buckets.
Until next time. I wish you GoodEats! Can’t get enough of GoodEats? Follow me on Instagram @GoodEatsMD.
