Hamburgers are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy with today’s Groupon: for $4, you get an Original burger at Vince’s South Port Restaurant (an $8.95 value).
A half pound of seasoned ground beef dressed in a thick overcoat of toppings and condiments awaits the arrival of hungry patrons in the comforting confines of Vince’s South Port Restaurant. A classic diversion from a spicied-up menu loaded with the piquant flavors of Cajun Louisiana, the Original burger offers its own tasty torrent of mouthwatering flavors. Thick spreads of mayonnaise and mustard grace the soft surface of the bun and serve as the groundwork for savory skyscrapers of crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes, pickles, and onions. Swiss or american cheese can be melted onto the flame-grilled masterpiece for an additional 50 cents, and a cultivated audience of french fries stands nearby on the plate, eager to appraise the meal’s cultural merit and comment on its principled sophistication.
Emerging from humble beginnings in a convenience store to a position of culinary prominence in a little more than a decade, Vince’s maintains the commitment to exceptional service and delicious local fare that defined the restaurant’s early days. A comfortable and homey atmosphere greets burger-happy patrons, whose daydreams of flying patties and spinning sesame buns account for many of the area’s UFO sightings.
