3. The Pharmacy Burger Parlor & Beer Garden
The first time I went to The Pharmacy, a bird...well...dropped something on my hand.
I mention this for two reasons: One, as a warning against sitting in the beer garden. (Though, I’ve sat in it multiple times since without any issue.) And two: Because, even with that, it didn’t detract from the nearly transcendent experience I had with that burger.
Here’s what I think they do right:
Yes, the meat is incredible. Yes, they have amazing fries. But for me, The Pharmacy burger experience is all about the buns they use, which are made fresh daily. Think of it this way: If music is about the space between the notes, then a great burger is about the space around the meat. And they do that part beautifully.
I don’t have a specific burger recommendation; just go there and choose one. I promise you’ll be thrilled. (Burgers range from $8.50-12.00)
