The onion rings at Burke's

When Burke's closing was announced, just after New Year's Day of 2011, there was a mixture of sadness and guilt. Another old Baltimore place was closing up, but many Baltimoreans had to admit that they hadn't been to Burke's in years. And suddenly everybody wanted those onion rings.
