The Thurmanator

Thurman Cafe: I think it is great that getting “Thurmanized” is part of the local jargon in Columbus and what they mean is that by having your first Thurman burger, you have been “Thurmanized”. That is a good sign of things to come. Thurman café serves up 17 different types of burgers plus 5 that are sometimes on the menu as specials. Each of these burgers start off as a ¾ LB patty and when burger starts with that you know you are going to have something good coming your way.

This placed opened originally as a bar and has evolved into a great place to get burgers, so the décor is that of your typical bar & grill. They have lots of different appetizers to try, so if you are with a group and you don’t think that a ¾ LB burger is enough for you be sure to get some of their hand cut fries, maybe even put some cheddar cheese on there also.

The ultimate burger that they serve here is the Thurmanator. This burger was developed for the competitors that come for the Arnold Bodybuilding Classic and if you have ever watched “World’s Strongest Man” on ESPN you know these are big boys and any food made to satisfy them is some Crazy Eats. The Thurmanator is a standard Thurman combined with a bacon cheddar burger, so it is a 1 1/2LB burger topped with ham, bacon, cheddar, provolone, american cheeses, mushrooms, and onions.
