Thurman Cafe Restaurant Review:

A popular German Village hangout since 1938, this modest bar and eatery is famous for its hamburgers---particularly the Thurmanator, the tasty (and enormous) 12-ounce burger topped with mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle, banana peppers, bacon, cheddar, another 12-ounce burger, sautéed mushrooms and onions, ham, mozzarella and American cheese. Once you can handle that one by yourself, you can move on to entire tri-tips or beef roasts. The other burgers are more reasonably sized, but still half-a-pound. If you have room, order the onion rings. Among the pizza "thins," try the sauce-less white pie made with a garlic crust, a generous portion of mozzarella and extra garlic for good measure. (We like ours topped with mushrooms and pepperoni.) The small, sticker-festooned interior of this place always fills up fast, so arrive early and expect a wait for a decent-size table.
