Astronaut cooks have made numerous attempts to wrangle hamburgers into space-ready meals, from dehydrated-pickle disks to vacuum-sealed burger bottles. Enjoy what our starry-eyed brethren never can with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of burgers, chicken, and sides at Burger Brothers in Towson.
Burger Brothers charbroils hand-packed patties of fresh ground beef to order, preparing meaty selections such as the 6-ounce hamburger ($4.99) and the freshly marinated boneless chicken breast ($5.29). Six types of cheese vie for space on the patty of the bacon cheeseburger ($5.99), forcing diplomatic tongues to try to avoid offending the aged, salty feta cheese or hurting the feelings of mild-mannered american slices. Genuine Idaho potatoes await their transformation into hand-cut fries ($1.89–$3.79) each day, and orders of plump wings arrive slathered in sauce that ranges from honey bourbon to smokin' hot ($6.99 for 10). Burger Brothers' vibrantly colored walls, tiled floors, and stainless-steel accents create a casual dining atmosphere ideal for cozy lunches with guidance counselors or ethereal lunches with hovering spirit guides.
Mike and Tim Murphy, the brothers behind Burger Bros., specialize in hand-sculpted burgers that weigh in at a hefty 6 ounces. They crown the patties with toppings such as caramelized onions or blue cheese and also marinate portobello mushrooms for a vegetarian version of their classic handheld. Burgers aren’t the only reason to visit, though. Cooks also toss chicken wings with piquant sauces and cut Idaho potatoes by hand to create their fries. Patrons can sip ice-cream floats, freshly squeezed lemonade, or Mexican Coca-Cola sweetened with real cane sugar rather than mashed up cupcakes.
