Memorable | One of the Best
Review by: Michael Stern
There are not a lot of different choices available from the White Hut’s brash, open kitchen, but it has become a Roadfood destination for cheeseburgers and hot dogs.
The cheeseburger (or, as it is known here, in New Englandese, cheeseburg) is a modest-sized patty cooked through on a grill and sandwiched in a tender white bun. It is a likeable lunch-counter hamburg, but what puts it in a class by itself is grilled onions. Look at the grill, next to the frying beef patties and there you see a hill of onions cooked until soft and limp and caramel-sweet. Heaped atop the cheeseburg, they complete a simple but perfect study in diner-style burger excellence.
The hot dogs are exemplary, too. Sizzled on the grill alongside the hamburgs, they are medium-sized tube steaks that blossom under a mantle of mustard, relish, and raw onions (applied by the waitress, as you specify); and they are served in a bun that is soft on the inside, but buttered and toasted to a luxurious golden brown on the outside.
Seating inside is limited to a few counter stools; but there is plenty of standing room at a counter that runs around the back of the room, as well as at a broad metal table where the lunch crowd can gather and scarf down weenies by twos and threes.
When finished with this fine feast, walk over to the cash register at the far end of the counter, tell them what you ate, and you are charged accordingly. It is truly fast food: you can be in and out, and well-fed, in five minutes.
