Halo Burger (Flint, MI)
3805 E. Court Street, Flint, MI 48506, T: 810-744-1260
Halo Burger, formerly known by its full name Bill Thomas' Halo Burger, is a chain of fast-food restaurants that has been in existence since 1923! It currently has 11 locations, all in the larger Flint, Michigan area. It has a regular menu for a hamburger joint, but its specialty is that you can add olives to everything for a mere $0.50 extra.
Although it is only 11 AM, and I haven't had breakfast yet, I cannot resist to test a new local chain, so I enter and keep it light. ;-) I order the Supreme Combo ($6.99): burger, fries, and soda. The Supreme is a large burger with a very well grilled 1/2 lb patty, fresh lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and very crispy bacon. The only weakness is the sauce, which isn't that strong. The fries are relatively thick for fast food and perfectly fried and tasty.
Halo Burger serves surprisingly good fast food! The portions are generous and the prices are very acceptable. Definitely among the better fast-food restaurants! Shame it is only in the Flint area.
