GCB in northern Indiana? Wed, 04/27/11 10:52 PM (permalink)
Is there anywhere to get a GCB a few miles off I80/I90 in Indiana? I've only had the one at 5-8 Club in Minneapolis, but the menu says the original is from Greencastle, IN. We won't be headed that far south on our trip, unfortunately. Any idea if we can find one in the north?

    Welcome to Roadfood!
     
    Just to make sure everyone knows, are you referring to a Garlic Cheeseburger?  I had to look at the menu of the 5-8 Club to figure that out.

              Lol! Yes, I'm looking for a Garlic Cheeseburger. :) I was hoping that posting it in the Hamburgers section would help with identification, heh.

                Only place I know of is in Greencastle at Marvin's.  I went on a football recruiting trip to Depauw in 1990 and that was the first place they took me.  A GCB is a garlic cheeseburger that is 2 patties side by side on a sub bun.  If memory serves the garlic was a healthy dose of garlic salt.  I liked it and I didn't argue when the group I was hanging out with ordered it later that night and I had another.  However, it wasn't the best cheeseburger I've ever had or anything.  My understanding is that the original building is gone and it is in a new building now.  
                 
                I found a picture of one on Jason Reitman's twitter page:

                    Being a regional freak (Right, WJ ??) I searched all of Kentuckiana for a Guatamalan Crab Burrito, but the closest I could get was Taco Bell.  I guess you're "S O L" in this part of the country.
