Burgers

The word "unassuming" gets thrown around a lot, but it's so apt when describing Sunshine General Store, a burger joint hidden in an old Howard County gas station. The cash-only diner harkens back to a simpler time, where regulars fill up the lunch counter and the same women prepare their burgers day in and day out. Customers can watch as their meat gets grilled on the flat-top, then placed on a hearty sesame seed bun with standard toppings like lettuce, tomato, onions, and mayo. Be sure to get yours with American cheese and ask for pickle chips on the side. Bacon is an option too, but why complicate things? Sometimes a simple cheeseburger, eaten at a diner counter, is everything.
