There's a Checkers in Howell on Rt. 9 South...
Gotta chime in for my favorite burger (at the moment).
I've had it twice now. The first time they forgot the bacon, but I was 3/4 of the way through before I even noticed.
Marlboro Diner (Rt. 9 South, adjacent to the Motor Lodge). "Boss Lady" Burger. Yeah, weird name, but I like it.
I think it's a half pound patty, and they WILL cook it rare. Topped with sliced avocado, cheddar cheese, bacon, and a side of Russian Dressing. (Diner is owned by Greeks).
I order it Deluxe, so it comes with lettuce and tomato as well. Fries are the best I've ever had... crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.. just the right amount of crunch. They don't need salt, but they're not those "seasoned" fries.
All this for $8.99. Or the burger by itself for $6.99. I get that with an iced coffee ($2.00 and free refills), and I'm good to go.
