This is the small order of fried zucchini.  It's designed for two, I say it could be enough for 4

This is the small order of fries.  My family of three doesn't finish it.

This grilled chicken salad doesn't come with the avocado, but for 99 cents, that's a lot of avocado

Combination burrito fills me up, and I haven't finished one yet.

Good Food at T Burgers in Monrovia 

 

By Bill Coburn

 

In January of this year, a new drive-thru ďburger jointĒ opened up at 226 W. Foothill Blvd., called T Burgers.  The thing about this place though, is that while the name is new, the tried and true methods used by its owner have years of experience behind them.  Jim Bicos owns another popular burger drive-thru in Pasadena, has for 18 years.  And that stand draws experience off another location, owned by another member of the family.  The family tradition actually started way back in 1952, so even though T Burgers has been around less than half a year, youíll find service and food quality that has been more than fifty years in the making.

 

The hallmark of T Burgers is the consistency and the quality of the food.  I have been eating at his other location for decades, and find that the food at T Burgers is just as good as what Iíve come to expect over the years.  My personal favorite is the chili cheese burger (single or double, I order it plain or with onions, since all T Burgers come with T Burgers Homemade 1000 Island dressing, lettuce, tomato, pickles and onions, which I can do without on a chili cheese burger), and I have to say that over the years Iíve had dozens of them.  Iíve already had a few at T Burgers, and they are just as good, the chili tastes just the same, the burger is a good ľ lb. of beef, and by the way, could you please give me some extra napkins? 

 

Iíve also enjoyed the bacon cheeseburgers (single and double), the beef dip, and lately Iíve been ordering the Combination Burrito off their Mexican menu.  The Combination Burrito comes with ground beef, beans and Jack & cheddar cheese.  This is one good sized burrito folks, and at just $3.79, itís a really good value.  The beef dip comes with lots of lean roast beef on a toasted French roll, with a side of au jus for dipping.

 

Katie regularly enjoys the pastrami dip, and thereís so much pastrami on this sandwich that frequently she ends up splitting it with Keelan, and both of them are full when they leave.  Thatís one of the things that my family generally has in common when we leave T Burgers, that feeling that the Coburn family describes as ďfood coma.Ē 

 

Part of the reason for that is the size of the portions.  The small order of fries is designed for two people.  The fried zucchini is designed for two people.  And letís talk about that zucchini for a minute.  I asked Katie, how am I describing this fried zucchini?  Iím not a big fan of zucchini, but Katie and Keelan regularly split it, and I felt pretty sure Iíd heard her describe the T Burger fried zucchini as some of the best sheís ever had.  So I asked her, and she got this kind of happy, goofy look on her face and said GOOOOOOD.  Add a little sing-song lilt to that extended syllable, and youíll be close.  Anyway, then she said, ďItís crisp on the outside, soft on the inside, never overcooked.Ē  I asked her if I was correct in remembering it as some of the best sheís had, and she said yes, definitely.  You see, T Burgers cuts their French fries daily, and their onion rings and fried zucchini are homemade daily.  And frankly, while they say their side orders of these items are designed for two, the three of us combined have never finished an order of fries, or an order of onion rings, or an order of zucchini.  Thereís just so much food.

 

Tonight, Katie tried the Grilled Chicken Breast Salad, with a 7 oz. Chicken Butterfly Breast served on a bed of mixed greens, with tomato, eggs, onions, cucumbers and black olives.  When I worked back at the Velvet Turtle in the late 1980s and early 1990s, we had a similar salad, that came with papaya, but didnít have the eggs, onions, cucumbers or black olives.  Back then, the cost of that salad was over $8.00.  Katie said her only complaint with the T Burger salad was that her plate wasnít big enough for all the food that came on it.  And this salad was just $5.79, though she paid a little extra for avocado.  But the quantity of avocado she got for the $.99 cent extra charge was surprisingly large.   

 

In addition to its tasty burgers, T Burgers also offers dinner plates, several sandwiches (including two types of Gyros), a varied Mexican menu, and breakfast, seven days a week.  Their breakfast menu includes 4 types of breakfast burritos, 4 different breakfast sandwiches, and 4 breakfast plates.  Right now, according to the sign over the door, they are running a pretty spectacular breakfast special, Monday through Friday.  The special features 3 eggs, potatoes, toast and ham, bacon or sausage, for just $2.99.  Breakfast is served till 11am weekdays, and till noon on weekends.  They open at 7am every day but Sunday, when they open at 9am. 

 

T Burgers does have a drive-thru for your convenience, and if youíre short on cash, you can use the ATM thatís on the premises, though youíll need to go inside for that.  Be forewarned, though, itís not a Point of Sale ATM, itís a free-standing machine, and there is a $1.50 charge to use it, plus whatever your bank charges you.  You can find the T Burger menu at www.sangabrielvalleymenus.com/tburgers.  There are really only two main differences, between Jim's two locations, the Pasadena store has cappuccinos, lattes, and espresso, which Monrovia does not, and the Monrovia store is a little cheaper on quite a few items, about a dime, though there are a couple items that are as much as forty cents cheaper.  And one other difference Ė thereís a 10% off coupon for T Burgers at the T Burgers menu page.  So an already great value just keeps getting better.  Itís old, itís new, itís cheaper, and itís really good.  Stop by and say hi, and enjoy some good food while youíre at it.
