Prime Burger Cafe at Old Homestead
SATURDAY PATIO BURGERS

Prime Burger Cafe at Old Homestead

We reined in our excitement when we realized that the new "cafe" is just OH opening their 20-seat sidewalk patio with a new lunch menu—but a menu chock full of juicy prime-cut burgers, kobe dogs and a tour de force Surf & Turf Steak Burger topped with steamed lobster medallions quickly made up for that disappointment.
