Dear AHT, Letters From Our ReadersDear AHT,

I recently stumbled across A Hamburger Today, and have been greatly entertained since. I'm not as technical a burger lover as your reviewers, but I know I love burgers. I'm from Owensboro, KY, and one of my favorite burger restaurants is a place called Ritzy's. The restaurant is a smaller franchise and it serves smashburgers like Steak n' Shake. I'm at college now, but Ritzy's is one place I always have to stop by when I'm at home.

I don't think Ritzy's are very widespread; I've only seen them in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. However, if one of your reviewers ever finds one, I suggest her or she try out one of Ritzy's burgers. I'm not a chili guy, but my family is and they have always enjoyed Ritzy's chili, too. In any case, my town has two Ritzy's and I feel like if Burger King and a place that only makes burgers on Mondays belong on AHT, Ritzy's is more than appropriate.

Best regards,
Andrew Moore

Is anyone else a Ritzy's fan?
