    The original Burger King in Mattoon, IL was in business way before the chain and was able to keep it’s name. Great burgers off te grill along with terrific ice cream treats.

    Looking forward to trying the places on your burger GPS app. One place you might want to check out is The Lantern in Lake Forest. Their Tiffany burger is my favorite around. Better than Hackneys or Beinlichs for sure. I have no connection to the place. Just recommend it.
