Burger: Booches

As downtown Columbia changes, one thing stays the same: Booches. Although change is not always a bad thing (Booches didn’t admit women until the 1970s), the burger is a constant you can count on. An enriched three-quarter-size bun is topped with a quarter-pound patty, Swiss and American cheeses, mustard, ketchup, onion and pickles. (Photo by Aaron Ottis)
