Open since 1937, Town Topic Hamburgers is like a diner-shaped time capsule. The fare at this enduring and modest joint is kept classic (melts, chili, dogs, 24-hour breakfast) but the focus is on the namesake dish: beef patties smashed with chopped onions, cooked on a hot griddle, topped with American cheese, and served with dill slices on a plain steamed bun. The single patties are 2oz, so hungry customers go for the double with a side of fries. Warning: biting into one on a rotating stool at the formica counter may have time-traveling effects. The burgers no longer cost 5 cents as they once did (welcome to the future), but they're still one heck of a deal.
