BEAUMONT - Willy Burger has slowly grown into a Beaumont staple in the short five years it has been open. Angie McClelland, who Co-Owns the restaurant with her husband explains why she believes, cheeseburgers are so popular.
"I think it's very All-American," said McClelland. "It's very old fashioned. With a little twist. We certainly go very old school. We see lots of families come in breaking bread together. Talking. Communicating."
Simplicity was the word echoed by some of the customers enjoying their meals on National Cheeseburger Day.
"I think just to have the meat where it's seared on the grill," said Larry Moerpe, an Orange native who comes all the way to Beaumont for the burgers. "Where it has the crispy crust on the hamburger meat."
But for Robert Paredes who sampled one of the more complex burgers at Willy Burger, the "Booty Burger" (a burger topped with melted cheddar cheese, creole mustard, and a whole fired boudain patty) complexity works just fine.
"That burger is A-okay," said Paredes with a smile on his face.
