I am not a fan of hole-in-the-wall dining. You would not find me gravitating to a greasy spoon diner.
Oh... I'm not that picky. I have lived in the Yuma area for 50 years, and this boom town has some places that are dear to my heart. They are the old favorites that most travelers would be hard pressed to find.
A good friend of ours introduced us to the Brown Bag Burger several years ago. This little eatery was located very close to where I live, and we passed by it more than once a day. You have to understand that I live in a remote area and this would be the closest place to get a hot meal for miles.
After eating one of these huge hamburger delights... I have myself a good head smack and said "what was I thinking?" I also lost the my battle with removing fried foods from my diet on that very day.
Now we are loyal fans and recommend The Brown Bag to everyone.
The Brown Bag has moved to a more convenient location. Not for me... but for most of the locals who live or work on the east side of Yuma.
Brown Bag Burger has moved to 5800 E. Highway 80 (known as 32'nd Street). It had been serving up these wonderful hamburgers for four years at 3939 S. Avenue 3E.
The new place is resembles an old fashioned diner... and the milk shakes are too die for.
Were are happy to drive a few extra miles to fill up on what we feel is comfort food. Oh... and the owners and staff are friendly... all the time!
With the move the menu has expanded.
We tried the Chile Cheese Fries and the Onion Rings. Like I said... I guess I will always be fond of fried foods.
