Hinkle's Hamburgers is a bit out of the way. It is a restaurant established in the 1930s and was much closer to campus at that time. Although the location and ownership has changed, not too much else has. A visit to the restaurant is like stepping back in time to those greasy burger joints that offered burgers that were oh, so good. Visitors stand in line in a narrow aisle to place an order with a colorful character, some more colorful than others. They then seat themselves at the counter or one of several round tables. Orders are delivered by name in brown paper sacks. I'm not sure what they do to make those hamburgers so good, but they really do taste much different than those at most other burger places. My recommendation is to skip the desserts which generally look much more appealing than they taste.
The hours seem to change fairly frequently so if you are thinking about going a bit out of your way to visit, you might want to call first and find out if they are open.
