Thurman Cafe

183 Thurman Ave., German Village



What can we conclude from Thurman Cafe's victory lap? Size does matter.

Nowhere else can Columbus residents find a burger quite as gargantuan as the patties served up daily in German Village's famous bar and grill.

Consider the standard Thurman Burger. With so much meat - both beef and ham are in the fold - and a toppings list that includes two cheeses, mayo and more vegetables than you can count on one hand, finishing the thing is as much a challenge as it is a delight.

And don't forget the menu includes 18 more varieties, including the ambitious Thurman-ator. Better go ahead and just loosen your belt now.

Runners-up: Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Graffiti Burger
