New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description

An original on Palm Beach, this burger stop is a step back in time, where omelets are whipped by hand, malted milks are spun in ancient blenders, and the burger is still king. Rub elbows with anyone and everyone, including some senior islanders who've been coming here since they opened in 1945. In season, tourists crowd the joint, so locals order takeout -- convenient anyway. Big, fluffy omelets are what to order at breakfast, especially if Melvin, the wonder cook everybody knows by name, is at the grill. The huge horseshoe counter anchors the room, and a few tables are scattered around the place, where servers might be as old as their countertop and cranky too. The don't-miss things here are the mushroom-Swiss cheeseburger and malted milk shake -- though the ice-cream floats are a worthy drink as well. Those watching red meats can go for turkey burgers or vegetarian versions; salads and soups are another option. You may not have room for the mile-high coconut cake or pie, but pack a piece to go.

    This diner has been a local favorite since 1945. Try the chopped Cobb salad and a slice of coconut cake.

    The San Antonio Burger is the best! Don't forget a slice of the black and white cake!!!

    We dare you to sit at the counter and NOT order a wedge of one of those enormous cakes. Even if you've already sucked down one of the shakes. -WV

    Stop in if you want an affordable meal in Palm Beach. It doesn't hurt that they have the best burgers in town. To get the full experience go with a chocolate or strawberry shake.

    This spot is a super casual classic. The burgers aren’t always perfect, and it gets crowded at lunchtime, but that all just adds to the charm.
