Best Burger With No Trimmings Whatsoever (2004)

Caro's Corner

Caro's Corner can be tough to find if you don't know what you're looking for, and even once you do find it, you won't see the niceties that some people find necessary for their dining enjoyment. Little things like tables, a menu, waitresses, regular hours, a phone. But if you can get past all that, you'll realize you're in a place where the grillman's art is still being practiced with a purity and simplicity that's all too rare these days. Owner Jeffrey Patterson does nothing but burgers. Hamburgers, cheeseburgers, doubles of either, and that's it. There's a chalkboard on the wall that lists fries, and catfish nuggets on Friday, but forget those. At Caro's, the meat is what matters, and Patterson makes a beast of a burger, big as a dinner plate and as fresh as you'll get anywhere -- because nothing is done until you come through the door and ask for it. Yes, this means you'll have to wait a while, but know that in the end, the wait, the drive, everything, will all be worth it.
