At Huey's Restaurant, which is actually more reminiscent of a pub than a restaurant, customers are given leeway to write on the walls and shoot toothpicks up to the ceiling. And though the digs may be divey, the lauded burger is high-quality and wildly popular, and has earned the Huey's multiple accolades, time and time again, since its inception in 1970. The beauty of the burger is in its simplicity: it's nothing more than a 1/3lb juicy, beef patty with a single slice of cheese, lettuce, tomato, and pickles, served on a soft, sesame seed bun. That laser-focus on just a few simple ingredients is likely the reason Huey's has expanded across the city, the burger slinging showing no signs of slowing down.
