Her menu includes mini-burgers.
Longtime patrons of the old-timey joint fear the worst. They say they’ve heard the new owner will replace the real burgers with mini-burgers. But a great hue and cry has gone up, and a waitress tells me that the new owner has indicated she may back away from the cute stuff and keep things real.
Maybe, then, the rumor of the real burger’s demise is exaggerated. Maybe they will be kept on the menu, after all. At this writing, the changeover is not complete, and it is too soon to know.
But it is best to stay vigilant in these matters. Because I have a word or two — well, three — of warning for you: Cute never sleeps.
