I grew up in the Workingman’s Friend neighborhood and had frequented the place well before my 21st birthday (illegally [;)] ). The place is legendary now mainly because it is a remnant of what used to be very common in Indy – the neighborhood bar. Those burgers are fried to crispiness well done with no juice whatsoever. It seems Sysco like burger meat to me and I judge the quality of a place by a more easily definable way – Workingman’s Friend serves a frozen puck fritter and palms it off as a breaded pork tenderloin sandwich. If one thinks their burgers are good in any way, it is all in the mind of nostalgia. I grew up on those kind of burgers fried on a well seasoned flat grill. My idea of a good burger today is made from fresh ground beef and is pink on the inside and dripping juices.
