The Patricia from Glendale Burgers

By Craig Manning | Dec. 2, 2023

Grilled cheese or burger? If you’re like us, you’ve spent many a precious moment staring at restaurant menus and trying to answer this age-old question. Sadly, the classic patty melt—the platonic ideal of these two comfort food staples merging into one—doesn’t make many menu appearances these days. But Traverse City’s Glendale Burger Shop is bringing the 1950s favorite back into rotation, and we couldn’t be more elated. The Patricia, Glendale’s version of the patty melt, offers a pair of mustard-seared beef patties sandwiched between two pieces of Texas toast and swaddled in gooey melted American cheese and flavorful caramelized onions. The recipe gained a loyal local following whenever it went into rotation at the old Glendale Ave. food truck, a fixture for years at The Little Fleet. Now, the Glendale team have their own brick-and-mortar location at 13692 West Bayshore Drive in Traverse City, and the Patricia is always on the menu. Have it with fries.
