Hackney's on Harms Restaurant Review

: Little changes about this place, and that’s what its fans prefer. Though several other sandwiches are tried-and-true possibilities, it would be a mistake to forgo the half-pound Hackneyburger, a marvel of juicy, quality beef topped with mellow cheddar and laid between slices of plush dark rye. This beauty is escorted by fine fries. But to gild the lily, order Hackney's original french-fried onion rings, a crispy, crunchy loaf of onions. On Tuesday, go old-school and get the turkey plate with gravy and cornbread stuffing. Looking for something lighter? There are soups and salads on offer as well. Majestic silver poplars make the summer patio especially appealing; inside is a cozy bar with friendly bartenders who you'll get to know, since there's usually a wait for a table.
