The Burger Bar

Cleburne, Texas


 Apparently not everything is bigger in Texas.
 I had a free day while I was in Texas last week so I took a drive. This is one of the interesting things that I saw. It's called the Burger Bar and supposedly they've been serving delicious hamburgers since 1949. The tiny brick building has been there since 1893. Unfortunately I was there too late to get a hamburger and too early for good photography light. I definitely want  a second chance for both.

  2. What a great antique burger and coke sign. Bet the burgers are fine, and hope you get to return during the "golden hour" to shoot what your mind's eye sees.

  12. I think it's perfect as is, down to the little yellow bucket with mop on the left. This is the epitome of quintessential American road trip photography...

  14. Despite the timing, they are still great photos James. History, just sitting there. I'm betting that coke and burger sign is worth a lot of money to a collector.
