Homesick for Harmon’s Hamburgers ~ Real Maine

Harmon’s Hamburgers = God.

Plain and simple.

Don’t even think about asking for a Harmon’s Hamburger prepared any other way than how they do it.  Some sort of neon red relish, amazing grilled onions on a buttered and steamed bun. No lettuce, no tomato… no way, no how!

Since 1960 a sign behind the counter at Harmon’s Lunch lovingly states (as only a New Englander could put it). “This is not Burger king. You don’t get it your way. You take it my way, or you don’t get the damn thing.”

The thing I think is so cool about Harmon’s is that they have stayed true to their original vision.  They have not tried to fancify the ingredients by adding extra wank to the menu.  I know I can go in ten years from now and it will be the same good food, served on paper plates, I’ve always had from there.

So friends, if you’re up in Maine and want to get off the beaten path and have a totally amazing burger, check out Harmon’s in Falmouth.
