What is the backbone of one of the state’s best burgers? Fresh ingredients

Halo Burger

Fresh beef that is never frozen.

Lettuce, onion and tomato that is cut as burgers are made.

It’s a recipe that has been serving Halo Burgers well since it was founded in 1923 and then later led by Bill Thomas and his family.

And it’s those practices, as well as locally made toasted buns, that Halo Country LLC has restored to the iconic Michigan restaurants in and around Flint.

“The freshness is what makes us a cut above everybody else,” Megan Ahejew, Halo’s community relations manager, told MLive.com’s John Gonzales recently. “It’s just like you’d make it at home for yourself. We make everything fresh as you order it.”

Halo Burger fans share their thoughts frequently with Terry Thomas, who took over from his dad and now serves as an ambassador for Halo Country.

“People come along and say, ‘Terry, these are still the greatest hamburgs.’ I say thank you and I feel the same way.”

Watch as the Halo Burger process is described by those who know it best.
