If you haven’t been to Grad School, it’s time to register. Not for class, but for one of the best casual meals in 417.
Story goes that the owner opened this place in lieu of graduate school (hence the name). Judging by the killer food, owner’s passion and large crowds, his decision was a wise one.
This particular Saturday I was craving a tasty burger. If you find yourself with a similar craving, The Full Ride will not disappoint. Hands down one of my top 3 burgers in Springfield. Crispy edges on the double beef patties, thick-cut bacon, loads of oozing soft sharp cheddar, lettuce and tomato. Served with perfectly crisp and deftly seasoned fries. The pictures speak for themselves. Try not to drool on your screen.
Other favorites here are the Long Beach Tacos (best fish tacos in town), Rasta Pasta (improved version inspired by owner’s previous days at Rasta Grill) and The Cuban (house baked ham, chorizo, swiss, pickles, pressed on the grill).
“I like the frying.”
“It’s better than Wendy’s.”
And overall, “Pretty yummy.”
