The Box burger is back, on 7th Street

THE BOX BURGER: Its back, fried on the original griddle.
  • THE BOX BURGER: It's back, fried on the original griddle.

It took two years, but The Box, a legendary burger joint that anchored the northeast corner of 17th and Main for many a year, is back.

Kat Robinson has every last detail on her Tie Dye Travels blog. The original griddle is doing the frying. They even saved the old ketchup bottles, Kat says. Find them on Seventh Street, just east of Vino's at Ringo Street. Kat's photos indicate the new Box has a good deal more sunlight than the smoky old bikers' den on Main, razed to make way for a USA Drug.

Before it was The Box, it was the Band Box. A fellow named George Eldridge ran a sporting bus out of the place to the dog track and had a cook named Lucille who also could fry up a hamburger to help the beers go down. That, you may know, led to another evolving restaurant story famous in these parts — Sports Page, Buster's, Doe's.
