Olive Burgers

I wonder how many other regions besides SW Michigan partake of the pleasures of a greasy diner burger, fresh from the grill, that is smothered in a mound of sliced green olives and dripping with mayo?

The Hot N Now chain had great (cheap) olive burgers, as well as Roxy's diner in St. Joseph.

    Had something similiar at the Longhorn Grill in Amado, Arizona, just south of Tucson. Delicious.

    Nearly every Greek "family style" place in the Chicago area makes a green olive and mayo burger. Just wish they wouldn't use frozen leather patties.

    Miaculpa, if you make it up to Grand Rapids, check out Get-m-n-Go... I beleive I've seen them on their menu also. (All their prices are comparable with what Hot n Now used to be)... (Plus they sell an awesome Chili Dog).. Also, olive burgers are fairly popular here.. Alot of taverns sell them around here.. Never realized it was a regional thing..

    Uncle Vic, since you're up in GR check out a funny radio guy recently departed from Chicago. Kevin Matthews and his alter-ego Jim Shorts are now in GR on WLAV, morning time-slot. Pretty amazing guy. www.kevhead.com He appeals to all demographics and will make you laugh for sure.

    There is a small regional chain (limited to the Dallas Ft. Worth Metroplex and Tulsa OK) "Burger Street" That makes an outstanding Olive Burger.

    I'd never heard of olive burgers - they didn't seem to make it all the way to southeast Michigan where I'd lived 13 years - but made some up last night. Very nice!

    I do love olives, but I think I'd shoot anyone who tried to put them on my hamburger.
