“Best burger in Maryland”
Review of Sunshine Store

Reviewed 13 October 2017

Yes, it's a crummy, almost scary looking building, but buckle up, Buttercup and enter the Sunshine Store. Revel in it's devil-may-care atmosphere, grab a bag of chips and a drink and head to the back where the cook is tossing the best burgers ever on to the grill. They don't make joints like this anymore, so bring the kids and the grandparents. No frills, just good food.

Not a great atmosphere. Lousy looking building on the outside. Small counter w/stools and a few tables. Good breakfast food and sandwiches for lunch. Self serve for drinks, no waiters.

I have probably driven by this place a few hundred times and have heard for more than 20 years how good the burgers were. Today I finally stopped to check it out. It is everything you read about in these reviews: Poor signage, dilapidated, middle of nowhere, poorly lit inside, and still outfitted for the 1960's including the menu board. The burger that everyone talks about isn't even featured on the menu, it's just on there near the bottom. No quick stops either. They cook it when you order it. It's also important to note that THIS MAY BE THE BEST DAMN BURGER YOU HAVE EVER HAD. There doesn't seem to be any secret spice or ingredient, no revolutionary technique, and no celebrity chef. It's just good ingredients, treated properly and served with love. I had the bacon cheeseburger since that was what other reviewers had zeroed in on: a huge patty, lots of bacon, plain old American cheese, lettuce, onion and a real honest-to-God slice of tomato. I rarely have hamburgers, but when I do, this is the one they will be compared to.

Once you get past the look of the place it turns out that this is a fantastic eatery. Although the overall decor remains road stop fifties, the kitchen staff are very careful about food preparation. Everyone too is in good humor, making this a great find on the country roads of northern Montgomery County. Don't miss the bacon cheeseburger with everything.

You'd never know it from looking at it on the outside but this place serves excellent hamburgers. It actually doesn't even look like it is in operation!
