Burger Joints Midwest


Little Bros. Burgers
Royal Oak, MI

Here is a tiny and I mean tiny burger joint in Royal Oak, MI called Little Bros. Burgers. It is just down the street from the old Royal Oak Theatre. Because the Grand Trunk Western runs diagonally behind it, this place is actually a triangle in shape so there are only about 8 stools inside. Can you imagine how small the building behind it is? So small I was unable to take an interior photo.

I had a rather tasty three burger, fries and drink combo for six bucks. Not bad. Since these pictures were taken, there has been an outdoor seating area added to the left of the building. If memory serves this was formally known as the "Cozy Coney". 09-08

The City Castle Hamburgers in Gary, IN appears to have some sort of resemblance to the White Castle Hamburger name and signs, whether intentional or not. The City Castle appears to also serve pancakes in addition to showing off its great looking sign. 10-08

Here's an old burger joint called Powers Hamburgers. Powers is located off of Harrison Street in Fort Wayne and has some good eats. With the soon to be downtown ball park for the Ft. Wayne Wizards, Powers should see an increase in evening business. 12-08
