Legendary | Worth driving from anywhere
Review by: Michael Stern
White Manna’s burgers are paradigmatic sliders: little balls of freshly-ground chuck that get slapped down onto a greasy griddle, preferably along with a handful of thin-sliced onions, mashed with a spatula, flipped, topped with cheese if requested, then crowned with the top of a tender potato roll. The roll is soft enough to sop up massive amounts of protein nectar that oozes from the beef as well as sweet perfume from the steamed onions; and its yeasty blandness is just what the forceful ingredients need to hit their peak. Heaps of thin-sliced pickle chips come alongside. Four or six of these make a nice meal. Alternately, it is possible to order a few doubles, which start with a ball of meat twice the size of a regular one, but to our taste, that strategy tests the perfect balance of a true slider.
The place is a minuscule diner with hardly more than a dozen seats and minimal counter space. We’ve never been to White Manna when it isn’t very crowded, meaning that although the hamburgers are definitive fast food, you might wait a while to get some.
