Like fairies, hamburgers are famously difficult to photograph because they can take thousands of forms and wear a variety of sauces. Capture a specimen red-handed with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of burgers and other classic American fare at C.W. Burgerstein in Wooster.
For 27 years, C.W. Burgerstein has been a casual meeting place for savoring bovine disks slathered in a mouth-watering concoction of creative toppings. Peruse the encyclopedic menu, then sate burgeoning grumbles with appetizers such as sauerkraut balls ($6.29) or Idaho potato skins ($7.59). Gourmet burgers serve as a restaurant staple, attaching themselves sentimentally and physically to patrons with saucy favorites like the Honey-Hickory bacon cheeseburger ($8.59) or the Hot Wing burger ($8.59). Those that prefer to save cows for tipping can substitute a turkey patty, garden-veggie patty, or sample the buffalo chicken sandwich ($7.99). A full bar provides thirst-slaking libations in the form of draft and bottled beers.
Artfully decorated by owner Greg Tieche, a cut-tile caricature of the mustachioed Mr. Burgerstein adorns the restaurant's exterior wall, jealously eyeing customers as they make their way inside to taste of the meat he can only dream of. TVs throughout the dining room offer a chance to successfully bet with friends on tape-delayed replays of the 1973 Kentucky Derby.
