At lunchtime, office workers line up to clamor for a burger with the works at this modern fountain-style burger joint. And it’s no wonder: perfectly charred on the outside, cooked medium (unless you specify otherwise), the juicy, sizeable burgers, served in a soft, light bun, positively reign over the competition. French fries are thin and light; onion rings, large and greasy. For dessert, keep it simple and order a thick shake called the Black Cow—vanilla ice cream blended with chocolate syrup.
