There’s something about shed-related restaurant buildings like Burger Barn in Hawthorne that excites me. They remind me of the now-defunct Red Barn restaurant chain, which had a little area in my Burger Museum.
Well, this Burger Barn in Hawthorne is a double drive-thru; only one of them is operational. However, there is a window in the front of the building where you can order some takeout or sit at the only picnic table available.
Even though I heard about their must-have wings and Jamocha shake, I was here strictly for a hamburg and fries. There was a split second while placing where I considered twisted fries.
These are run-of-the-mill crispy salted fries made better with some ketchup. No need for the large; the small fries were just fine.
So there’s a hamburger (single), super burger (double); both are available with cheese. The Supernatural Cheeseburger‘s name caught my eye, and I felt compelled to go with that fellow.
This guy is a triple cheeseburger with special sauce (ketchup-mayo based) on the bottom bun. It’s a fast-food burger perfectly executed.
Burger Barn is precisely the burger joint I’d hoped it to be. A sold burger in a no-frills environment, something every small town across America does best at preserving.
Just an FYI, there are other unrelated Burger Barn restaurants across the U.S., including one in Jackson, Tennessee.
