Less than 2 miles west of the St. John's Bridge on Highway 30, the Linnton Family Cafe serves up a pretty decent burger.
I ordered the Bacon Cheese Burger ($5.75) and my photographer friend Erio had the Basic Cheese Burger ($4.95). Both featured a char-broiled, 1/3 pound hand-formed patty, american cheese, and ultra-soft sesame seed bun. Both were served with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and mayo on the side. Crinkle-cut fries included!
The produce was extremely fresh and flavorful: Crunchy lettuce, hearty tomato, nice white onion. The bun was lightly buttered and fried, and the fries were cooked perfectly. The ground beef seemed to be cooked well-done although the menu states they're cooked to medium unless otherwise specified. Next time I'll order it medium-rare.
