Some of my co-workers and myself went to Hamburger Mary's for lunch today. I had never been there but had seen it many times while walking downtown. I had heard that it "reopened" not too long ago with new ownership. I had never heard of it before a few months ago so I can't compare it to how it use to be.
They use a lot of bright colors and have a lot of girlie features around the restaurant. Such as the movies that were playing (Hairspray and something about a Ghost of girlfriends past or something), the pictures on the wall (mainly of women) and then of course the Mary statue up front and the high heeled shoe that you get your check in.
They are obviously known for there burgers, and that is just what my two co-workers got. They both enjoyed theirs and were ready for naps once we got back to the office because of how full they were. I, being the great Catholic that I am, got a cod sandwich. It was very large and quite good. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was also served with Mary's seasoned fries, which had a pretty good kick to them, but were very good fries. I am not sure if they were doing a Lenten special, but I got my fish sandwich and fries for only $7, when I could have sworn the menu said $10. If so, that is definitely a good reason to go there to try their fish.
I hope to be back soon to try their Bacon, BBQ Burger topped with onion rings. It just sounds like my type of burger. All in all it was a great experience, friendly service, good atmosphere and good food.
