A monthly roundup of ethnic eats, counter service chow and other tasty bargains. This month, we seek out some of the area’s best burgers – and while loaded half-pound bar burgers certainly have their place, this time around we’re betting on the welterweight: old school diner burgers.

Corbett’s Burgers & Soda Bar
126 Kilmayne Drive, Cary
1520 E. 11th St., Siler City
Note: Little changed since it opened in 1946, and this Siler City landmark is a must on any old school burger fan’s bucket list. It’s only open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., though, and closes earlier if they run out of burgers. There’s no website or phone number, so you’ll have to take your chances. Best advice: get there early.

MoJoe’s Burger Joint
