So, you’ve been running errands all day; you’re looking for cheap food to satisfy your hunger, your car is thirsty and you don’t want to stop at multiple places to conquer both. In the distance you see a bp gas station, with a burger joint attached?! No, you’re not experiencing a mirage, Taystee’s Burgers is that exact place. With a 1950’s old time feel it’s as if Dr. Frankenstein himself were to create a gas station/ burger spot right in our own backyard. Now, the seating and quick-to-order service may feel like the 1950’s, but these burgers are no-where near your “classic” burger. You like nacho cheese? It’s on a burger. You like jalapeno poppers? It’s on a burger. You like grilled cheese? You’re in luck because they use two of them for buns on the Breakfast Burger; of course my curiosity got the best of me and I got that burger, luckily I’m not a cat. Taystee’s Burgers has one location at:
10419 Ford Rd, Dearborn, MI 48126
Entrée: The Breakfast Burger ($9.99)- When you think “breakfast” you usually think of eggs, toast, some fruit on the side, and maybe a piece a bacon or sausage. Well, let me just say this burger destroys that stereotypical breakfast meal. Although it does include bacon and an egg, this burger comes with two grilled cheese sandwiches for buns, and yes, my heart is still beating after eating it. Topped with Swiss cheese, grilled onions and green pepper, and a scoop of their special sauce I had to eat this burger strategically. You’d think with so much going on this burger would be too much for one person, but everything complimented the burger perfectly. To the quality of the beef, to the special sauce that I think was their twist on Thousand Island dressing.
Side: Mac Bites ($3.99)- Personally, I love macaroni and cheese, and what better way to eat a burger than deep friend mac and cheese bites? I could probably make a meal out of these puppies if I had to. Homemade macaroni and cheese put into perfect bite size morsels, they were cooked perfectly and as soon as you bit into it the macaroni would just melt like butta.
Experiencing Taystee’s Burgers was a food extravaganza I will never forget. Will I go back? Of course, aside from the crazy combinations, cheap prices, and convenient gas station attachment; Taystee’s is a cut from the rest. They have excellent service, quality food, and originality. I think that’s what makes people so attracted to it, plus those amazing mac bites. So if you’re ever in Dearborn looking for a good burger and need to fill up your tank, I highly recommend this place.
