Burger Time Machine

If you were to pass by this restaurant, what would your first reaction be? Yeah... me too. It was always,really?? How?...Why?? Does ANYONE desire to eat at a place called Burger Time Machine? This restaurant used to be called MGs, but it closed down. And then I think they changed the name to Burger Extra, or something weird and lame like that. And then, the name that beats all other names: Burger Time Machine.

Let's get one thing straight: I have made fun of this place every time I have passed by it. The name alone opens all doors for laughing. Burger Time Machine... think about it. Outside written on the window it has things like BYOB, No frozen meat or fries, Biggest burger in Denton.

So last night was craving a burger and fries. Mike and I thought about where we could go eat, and as we passed by this little gem, Mike jokingly said, "Let's go to Burger Time Machine!" Haha, funny thought. But I was really hungry and couldn't take the disappointment of eating a horrible burger and fries... especially from Burger Time Machine. I said no, but then of course Mike got it in his brain to actually eat there. So it was decided.

I cringed getting out of my car... actually feeling a little embarrassed that we were about to eat here. We were "greeted" by a worker standing outside smoking a cigarette. Awesome start BTM. We walk in and we are the only people in the place, a perfect sign that this restaurant is a winner. Sarcasm.

(those 2 people joined us later)

We decided that we would just "look at a menu" and decide whether or not this place was "eat-worthy". We walk in and as Mike is half-way through his sentence of "We just want to look at a menu", there is already a menu posted for all to see, and we get sucked into staying.

We sit down to a red and white picnic table-clothed booth and fill out our desired burger.

And we were joined by Michael J. Fox, I mean, Marty McFly.

Oh, and Sam was with us.

While we waited I had to use the restroom.

Not gonna lie... I was a little scared getting there.

So we waited for our burgers and fries. I kept telling Mike that I better not be disappointed. But he reminded me that I had no expectations so it was ok.

Finally we got our food!... it looked good.

AND... to my surprise, it actually tasted pretty good.

Mike and Sam thought the same thing.

So I must say it: Way to go Burger Time Machine. Although your decor was a little... weird. And although we had a scare being the only people in the place... And although you have BYOB on the outside of your windows... You weren't that bad. So no longer will I be able to judge away at BTM, but look at it and know that at one time, I ate there, and it wasn't bad.


  1. I've eaten there too! It was pretty good!

  2. yea! that is right! it was like, taking a trip back in time to the future of todays hamburgers!

  3. Wow, going to that bathroom would have freaked me out a bit I think!
