Anyone who’s ever been to Broadway Pizza on Broad Avenue knows that 1) they love Elvis and 2) they aren’t afraid to pile the meat on their pizzas. It should come as no surprise, then, that their hamburger weighs in at a hearty half-pound (at least). The menu will tell you no more than that it costs $3.50, but don’t let this lack of a description fool you into thinking there’s nothing special about it.
First off, it’s big; second, it’s cheap; third, it’s delicious. This basic burger, piled high with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayonnaise, and mustard, could easily hold its own against better-known burgers. Furthermore, Broadway Pizza could easily justify changing its name to Broadway Burgers. (Now that I’ve had one, I may never order one of their pizzas again.) Until then, let’s enjoy keeping this a secret.
