It was a cold but sunny day (no snow, for a change!) and we took a road trip to Burger Bros. in Towson, MD. It’s located on Allegheny Avenue and you can easily walk there from Trader Joe’s or Barnes & Noble. Yeah… we went to Trader Joe’s, but the main reason we were in Towson was for the burgers.
I ordered a cheeseburger (I chose pepperjack cheese) with basic lettuce & tomato fixins’. The burger patties are 6 oz Angus beef, char grilled to order. They have a lot of flavor and good meaty juices. It was one of the best burger patties I have tasted in a while.
I also ordered a large fries. These were hand cut, freshly fried, “Broadwalk style” fries. They were delicious and you should definitely get an order.The large was big enough to share with Mom & Dad. They also have a “Monster Bucket” size which looked like it was served in a giant popcorn bucket. I think those would last all day. Dad ordered his usual cheeseburger (cheddar) with raw onions and mustard. The raw onions make his breath smell and they give him indigestion. Listening to him hiccup is funny for the first 2 minutes, but then it starts to get boring. I wish he would stop ordering raw onions. Mom should start making him eat salads again. No more burgers for you! A nice bowl of lettuce will stop those hiccups 🙂 Mom had a cheeseburger with A1 sauce. I washed down my burger with a delicious strawberry milkshake. It was made to order and it tasted pretty good. They also sell Boylon’s bottled sodas and I guess that makes the hipsters happy. (There wasn’t one hipster beard in the place while we were there. I was disappointed. Trader Joes was full of hipster beards. Maybe it’s wasn’t hip to eat burgers on that day. Maybe they should put an “artisan burger” on the menu to attract hipsters.)
Burger Bros. is a family business (run by brothers!) and they seem to be proud that they’re not another Five Guys franchise. You can ever buy a t-shirt.
I award my burger a score of 8 out 10. It was a good, juicy burger. If you are visiting Towson, and whether you have an official Trader Joe’s hipster beard or not, then you should pay Burger Bros. a visit.
