Burger Barn - Wed, 06/30/10 7:37 PM

Burger Barn is a little drive thru burger joint in Hawthorne Florida on US 301 and State Road 20. 
 

 
It's got a walk up window with a couple of picnic tables. And a small reasonably priced menu.

  
I got a super cheeseburger, which is 2 patties, lettuce, tomato, onion and jazzed up thousand island dressing on a toasted bun. 
The burgers are cooked on a flat top and are on the small side, but very good.
The fries are typical frozen fast food.  A good selection of crunchy well done and soft limp.


 
On my next visit, I got the fish, which as expected is a frozen filet.  It's average.  McDonald's is better.  This time all the fries were on the limp side, which is the way that I like them.
I also got a small Jamocha shake, which was very good.  A slight coffee and chocolate taste and very thick.




 
It's open 7 days a week from 10 am to 9 pm.  I reccommend it for a quick burger, Better than fast food joints.  A nice little independantly run business.

I would give the burger and shake a try. Probably pass on the fish and the fries definitely aren't done enough to suit me. I used to go out sr 20 through Hawthorne from Gainesville but not since the 70's

how can food look bland?
because it doesn't look like a picture of a Red Robin $10 burger?

I  agree.  I cannot understand how someone can look at a photo and declare the food to  look  bland.  Hello!   We are talking  a burger and fries here...............

That thousand island dressing on burgers has always been a fave, First on Foster Freeze burgers growing up in California and later on Frishs Big Boy and gasp! the Big Mac.

Aren't you kind of the queen of commenting on pictures of food?  I can remember many threads when you would comment on how"dreadful" or awful something looks.

If food can't "look bland" in a picture, then, conversely, it can't "look tasty" either, right?  I think we all have seen a picture and said the food looked tasty.  In the instant case, I think the burger looks tasty, but agree the fries look pretty bland.

No.  She owned it.  You have to respect her for that.

Ouch.  Good one.  That hurt.  Really.  You really zinged me that time.  Wow.  I hope I can recover.
 
By the way, I was actually paying Greymo a compliment.  Ride in on your white horse some other time.

This was in the Daytona Beach News Journal on 07/06/10.
I know the writer is from Wilton,  Connecticut, because there are always references to Wilton Pizza and The big diner in Wilton (Orams?).  But I know there is no Burger Barn in the Wilton area.
Just thought this was funny.

Nice find, Bob. 

What is a SUPERNATURAL BURGER?


I don't know,Don. I will eat there again next week & find out & maybe get one depending  on what it is.

a Supernatural burger is 3 burger patties.
I thought it might be an organic burger pattie or at the worst a veggie burger.
I should have asked before. I would have ordered that instead of a double.
MORE IS ALWAYS BETTER 99.2% of the time.

I've been here many times, I use to live about 5 miles away on Bream Lake.  They started here in Gainesville and moved to Hawthorne.    It is good and beats anything else Hawthorne has to offer ie:  Sonny's.  Back when the "Fried Chicken Factory" was open, that was the place for breakfast and their chicken gizzards were very good if you like the type you don't have to chew on like bubblegum.  They pressure cooked them first then fried them.

stopped by Burger Barn about a month and a half ago on the way back from an appointment at Shands hospital in Gainsville.
The place is still the same. Still great burgers & fries. Same look, but the prices went up just a little bit.
