The Standard Giant Burger is a 1/2# patty w/ choice of cheeses (American, Swiss, Cheddar, Pepperjack, Meunster, Bleu)Lettuce, tomato. onion, mustard, catsup & Mayo. Well put together and very tasty!
Their fries are excellent as well.
sounds delicious, but how did Marin County get mixed in with Ken's "Newark quest"..
p.s. Sorry to hear you missed out on Eddie's. I had not heard of the place, but I know the feeling. (finding out a place just closed before you had a chance to experience it)
That happened to me recently in downtown Charleston, SC. I wanted to try the dive "My Fathers Place" by the railroad tracks , (I believe that was the name, anyway) supposed to be a real good burger...I had read the reviews in the weekly "what's happening" guide, etc..
apparently they had just closed... (I may never know why)
But often it is a sad reality that it is cause of the owner(s) dying.
There used to be a real good small Kosher deli/market in North Hollywood, CA on Burbank Blvd called Drexlers. (by Woodman Ave, I believe) I used to go to it in the 1980's. Great pastrami, normal size, for like 5 dollars..
owned by an older couple.. they were probably in their 80's ..
Well, they've been gone at least 10 years already, and so is the good little dive "Drexlers"... RIP
