Tony's Lunch

23 E. Main St, Girardville, PA -
Tony's is a coal country legend, open from 7:30pm until about 2am and serving an outrageous burger called The Screamer: a huge hunk of fresh ground beef topped with a dark chili sauce, preferably "SOS" (sauce on both sides), quick cheese (un-melted) and -- are you ready? -- Marshmallow Fluff. Devotees contend that the Fluff and chili sauce make a great burger dressing.

By the time I got my photos in, the Fluff was already sliding off the screamer.

The French fries are a popular side, but were too airy for me.

The chocolate milk is the beverage of choice, to help soothe the heat from the hot sauce.

Don't make the same mistake I did.  Make sure you grab a number from the front pile next to the register when you walk in the door.

Tony's is as unassuming a Roadfood restaurant as you can imagine, but locals flock to the place.
