This part of a profile from the Arizona Daily Sun about the Mama Burger restaurant on Route 66 in Flagstaff, Ariz., got my attention:
“I think it reminds them of a burger either they would make at home for themselves or someone dear to them would make for them,” said Bernadette Chavez, who owns Mama Burger. She and her husband also own Fratelli’s.
The restaurant is riding high. It celebrated its one-year anniversary last month and its burgers have been compared in Internet circles to the famous and well-loved In-N-Out burger.
In-N-Out, in case you didn’t know, is a small burger chain in California that’s gained a substantial and devoted following. So being compared to it is very high praise indeed.
Mama Burger recently marked its first anniversary. More about Mama Burger can be read here.
