Known as the Burger Institution, MAMA BURGER in Flagstaff, Arizona is the go to place for burger junkies and milkshake lovers. I've been to the place roughly 5 times in the past month already. Granted that it's the only burger place that is less than a mile away. It also quickly fills up especially during peak days.
This old school burger joint is pretty simple. You line up at the counter and order. If you don't want to, there's a drive thru. Remember though, they make your orders as you ask for them so they make take awhile during peak hours. It's a lesson I learned when I visited on a Friday night.
If you do visit, I suggest you get a milkshake. It's pretty good and it isn't too sweet. As long as you don't overdo the mixins, then you should be fine.
Of course since this is a BURGER JOINT, you have a number to choose from. Each has their own nicks and knacks.
Whatever the case maybe, always go for a meal. You get to pick a side dish like tots or fries and it comes with a drink as well. If you're feeling down, upgrade the drinks to a milkshake.
Personally, I find the combinations at Mama Burger familiar. I've tried some of them at other restaurants but I still find myself going back. I think it's the feeling of being at home. The place reminds me of what restaurants used to be. Relaxed and chill. The burger patty itself isn't too big and isn't uniform in shape. BUT, it does the trick. The cheese is always present and if you want, they also have veggies in em. Some of the burgers have fries stuffed in between the patty and the bun. SO, it's really up to you with whatever you may want to go. Just to let you know, I do enjoy their version that has some bleu cheese in it. Surprisingly, it wasn't over the top and overpowering. Having bacon in there also helps.
(UN)Fortunately, this is always the case. An empty plate after every meal. It doesn't disappoint so it's definitely worth a try. Take note though, staying inside would make your clothes smell. I suggest eating out and having a nice time under the sun with the perfect view.
