The Thurman Cafe

183 Thurman Ave. Columbus, OH (614) 444-3688
Do you ever watch The Travel Channel with envy because you’re on your couch at home instead of vacationing at that exotic location?  Last year, for one episode of the Travel Channel’s Man vs. Food, the Thurman Cafe put Columbus on the map.  Man vs. Food host Adam Richman took on the Thurman Burger and made mouths water all over the country.  Since the Thurman Burger is known nationally now, we decided to give some ink to its younger brother.  The A-1 Burger ($8.79) is another favorite that’s not for the faint of heart.  It’s cooked in A-1 sauce, and topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, Swiss cheese and their famous onion straws.
