More on Burger Brothers.

By Wendy Ward | Posted 3/19/2008

We recently found ourselves on a sunny but cold Sunday afternoon in Towson at the new Burger Bros., a locally run Five Guys-type joint. We ordered our burgers from the young guy with the Pete Wentz hair, self-served our own little cups of ketchup and big ones of soda pop, and feasted from red plastic baskets on a metal tray. Charbroiled with all the flavor of a backyard barbeque, the bacon cheeseburger ($5.99) wasn't as tall as the typical hand-formed burger, but easier to eat and tasty. The turkey burger with cheddar ($5.49) was surprisingly juicy and smooth (if you've ever taken a gristly bite of a turkey burger, you know that's key). Both were served on fluffy yellow buns nicely dressed with our chosen condiments from a list including crisp red onion. Plump chicken wings ($6.99 for 10), served with blue cheese and celery, stained our fingers red with the traditional greasy hot sauce. The wings come in other flavors such as Bay and Cajun too. Fresh-cut spuds ($1.89 for a small) kept their skins on and were made even yummier with a shake of the malt vinegar bottle, and the crispy onion rings ($3.49 for a medium) featured real onion slices breaded like fish sticks. Another hit at the pop machine and 87 napkins later, we left satisfied and hoping a BB opens in the big city.
