hawkins burger (open again)- my new fave

they are back in business, with 'normal' hours. my friend lives a couple of doors away and we'd been planning to go visit and get the 'hawkins special' which, as reported elsewhere is basically 3 - 8oz patties of REAL meat, none of that prefab stuff; 3 eggs; 2 hot links; ridiculous amounts of bacon and pastrami, pickles, mustard, cheese, and other stuff i can't remember. they are very proud of their creation and asked if we wanted to see it before they wrapped it up. picture attached. the quality is high and flavor great, even if tough to eat. we really had to turn it into two open faced "theme" burgers, one with pastrami, 2 patties, and hot link and the other with eggs, bacon, hot link and 1 patty. knife and fork needed. really great. now, the common misunderstanding is probably that this is the only burger they make, but in fact they have all sizes and types of burgers using these various ingredients mentioned, but a 'junior burger' at a whopping $1.06 all the way up to this thing. a double burger, which is 2 of these 8oz patties--- plenty big--- is only about $4.50. i also had their strawberry bundt cake, which was ridiculously fresh and moist. they also had lemon cake that i'm going back for. seating is basically a few tables out in the sun out front.

they also have breakfast and seemed sure we would think it was sick (good sick).
