Situated in the adorable Orlando neighborhood of Thornton Park is modern burger joint Graffiti Junktion. Being the home of Mickey Mouse & a massive tourist trap, Orlando has an overabundance of crappy chain restaurants, so I was really excited when Stephanie’s friend Carla suggested a local restaurant. Their website boasts that they are “An American Burger Bar Like No Place Else”, so I had to find out what the fuss was all about.
The menu offers BBQ, a variety of sandwiches & their specialty burgers. I knew I had to order a burger & I debated heavily between the Cheese Head, which boasts four slices of American cheese inside & out, & the Lone Star, a bacon, cheddar & bbq sauce burger.
When in Rome, right?
This juicy guy was definitely far above your average hamburger. The crispy bacon & sharp cheddar were perfectly complimented by the sweet BBQ sauce. Pure awesomesauce. The hand-cut fries were fresh, appropriately seasoned & fried to perfection. Huge fan of those french fries.
Then Carla had to out-do us all by ordering The Iron City – a colossal burger with Canadian bacon, egg, fries, American cheese & onions:
That size of that bad boy alone was impressive.
Graffiti Junktion also has some pretty great (read: affordable) happy hour specials, which I’m always a fan of. Definitely on my list of Must-Eats in Orlando!
