Hamburger Mary's, a chain out of California, bills itself as a "family dining" restaurant -- albeit one where the definition of family is broad and the dining regularly gives way to drag-queen bingo. Go for the ambience, the incredible patio and the burgers: Mary's has a long board filled with a variety of campily named sandwiches, all of which are served large, loud and loaded. In December 2015, Hamburger Mary's became M Uptown and is no longer associated with the chain.
