THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Purdy's Hamburger Market Restaurant Review

: Don’t worry, be happy is what you might start humming as you enter this laid-back, 1950s-style grill. The menu’s huge, but focus on the burgers and hot dogs---that’s the reason you’re here. That and items like french fries and killer onion rings, fried seafood, maybe a side of chili---but definitely not the salads or anything else on the heart-healthy menu. Burgers come in three sizes, hot dogs in two, and they don’t hit the grill until you’ve placed your order at the counter. You pick up your food and head for the big top-it-yourself bar, which even includes melted cheese. The kids’ menu is just right, too, including chicken fingers, corn and ice cream. Order a cherry Coke and settle in to chow down and listen to some oldies.
