  • This place has 18 types of burgers, but one isn't on the menu: a burger created for the Arnold Schwarzenegger Bodybuilding Competition: the Thurmanator. --Adam Richman, Man v Food Nation
  • Thurmanator! You must try it!
  • The whole building was constructed primarily with hamburger meat. Eat the whole thing for a chance to win a live baby dolphin. Served with slaw and a drink.
  • Head to Thurman Cafe, order a burger and eat it, using silverware is not allowed!

  • Jonnie burger makes the wait well worth it. No vegetarian options though,mainly because vegetarians are dumb and this place is awesome.

  • Have the Thurman burger. Their classic, it is truly an amazing one
