If paying $25 for a hamburger upsets you but you can’t get with diner burgers for $3 either, you’re in luck. Popson’s is an order-at-the-counter spot that feels relaxed and neighborhoody, and makes seriously good burgers that are just the right mix between fast-food and fancy. For sides, the seasoned fries are the move. Make no attempts at being healthy when you’re anywhere within 500 feet of this place.
