Two Guys Ghetto Burger

I headed to Wynwood for a lunch meeting when I drove right by a Two Guys banner (1490 NW 3rd Avenue) in Overtown that caught my eye; it mentioned a Ghetto Burger. On the way back home a few hours later, I snapped a picture and put it up on Instagram as a reminder that I had to return.

My friend, el Comelon, is with me, and we arrive right at 10:55 AM a few days later. We were under the illusion that they open for breakfast, but they’re a lunch & dinner spot that opens at 11 AM. It appears to be a takeout joint as there are really only two seats & a table to sit down at. One last thing, it’s a total dive, which is part of its charm.

We ask for our Ghetto Burgers all the way, one of them with bacon and an order of Hot Wings. Comelon tried to add a cheesesteak, but they’re out. In conversation, while we’re waiting, we think about adding the oxtail and fried chicken to our order. The next thing we know, the food is ready, and we take our seats.

The wings are serviceable with a nice, not too hot spice that comes back to haunt your lips afterward.

The Ghetto Burger comes with American cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomato, onion, ketchup, mustard & mayo. I take a bite, and it brings me back to my childhood. I peel away the lettuce, tomato, onions, and pickles after the first mouthful and eat the burger the same way Abuela would make me my Burgers back in the day. You can’t buy moments like these, and it makes me glad we decided to stop in.

Two Guys’ Ghetto Burger is a great homemade burger with no pretense. I wish there were more spots like this still around. And since there aren’t, it makes this find that much better.
