Description

Lunch at W.T. Smithers is served fast for people who are trying to beat the clock. But fast doesn’t mean diners are shortchanged. They still enjoy big burgers, overstuffed sandwiches, excellent soups and hefty appetizers. W.T. Smithers also draws local professionals and state legislators during the lunch hour. If timed right, around 12:30 p.m., the average Joe or Joan can do a bit of lobbying.

From 2009:

The chefs at W.T. Smithers take a half-pound of certified Angus beef and grill it to order. There are eight variations of burger, including cool ranch, three-cheese (provolone, American and cheddar) and the ever-popular bacon cheeseburger. Brave souls attack the Double Stack: a 1-pound monster that’s been the subject of a few challenges over the years. “It’s a little bit ridiculous,” says co-owner Jason Thomas. “I’ll tell customers if they can eat the burger and all the fries, I’ll pay for their meal.”
