beef burger
If you've ever passed through Greensboro, chances are you've driven by Beef Burger...or, at the very least, driven past a car with the bumper sticker 'I eat at Beef Burger'. In an attempt at full-disclosure, I must admit that I have not eaten a burger at Beef Burger [which I recently learned is pronounced 'Biff Burger'], nor does my car boast a sticker promoting it. However, this doesn't prevent me from delighting in the idea of the institution, with it's great signage and loyal group of customers. It speaks to another era...when life was simpler, there were no calories and the name 'Beef Burger' did not immediately raise eyebrows and cholesterol levels. Oh...to go back in time.

Great sketch! I think its mandatory that each town have its requisite burger dive. My husband and I were visiting our local dive last night and wondered how the burger could taste so good and so different. He figured it was the difference of having 50 years of grease built up in their grill - haha (I hope that's not really true).

Suzanne this is pretty awesome! I've been wanting to eat here for the longest time, but I just can never find anyone to go with. I think I've gotta do it though, it's time!

Great sketch, and loved the story. I love these types of places when I visit other cities, makes you feel like you're really "in the know" to find them as an outsider.
