Burgers

The phrase on the Nook's green awning says it all: "a small place with big burgers." This corner dive has been around since 1938, garnering a substantial following thanks to its magnificent Juicy Nookie burger, a nicely sized, well-seasoned patty packed with cheese on the inside, served on a fresh bakery bun. The molten center is its claim to fame, and rightly so. Plot twist: the Nook also has a vintage, eight-lane bowling alley underground, where you can eat, drink, and knock downs some pins.
