Flint's Halo Burger lands on list of nation's 'best drunk foods'



Flint-based Halo Burger has gradually expanded into Metro Detroit in recent years, which is excellent news for those occasionally in need of a greasy meal to stave off a nasty booze-driven stomachache: If you want to take Thrillist's word for it, Halo's beefy double cheeseburger is one of the "best drunk foods" in the nation. Here's what writer Adam Lapetina has to say about it:

In Michigan, you can get a great coney dog at every diner and on every freeway exit. But only in and around Flint can you get a Beefy Double, which tastes a lot like an amped-up version of Five Guys, and consists of a bottom bun, a patty, cheese, a patty, cheese, a middle bun, a patty, cheese, a patty, cheese, and a top bun. Toppings range from onions to olives. Most locations are open 24 hours. Don't deny yourself onion rings.
