Re: Determining the Best Burger

Still have not tried Minetta Tavern's $28 burger. It's made with onion and french fries.

Re: Determining the Best Burger

The Red Robin Uber was good, not great. It has all the right ingredients, it's just too big. They should have went with a 1/3lb patty. You don't need a half pound with the brat on top.

All I had with it was a soda. The bill was $19 and change. Was not expecting that. $15 burger and $3 drink. Absurd. It was worth trying but $15 is way too high.

Re: Determining the Best Burger

Candied bacon killed it for me. Why the fuck do they have to put sugar in everything these days? To make the skinny fucks fat? Or to make the fat fucks fatter?

My cafeteria at work has good food, but they salt the fuck out of everything. Salt, sugar, heart disease and diabetes. Murica

Re: Determining the Best Burger

If you look at labels on food I see salt content as high as 800-900 mg.
Why does food need that much salt in a serving, that's almost 40% of a daily suggested allowance.
A serving on a can of suop is one half cup and has over 700 mg of salt. The entire can is 2.5 servings
for more than 2000 gm of salt.

That's roughly the price for a burger at any sit-down place here.

Re: Determining the Best Burger

I tried this last night...



... at Steak 'n Shake.

As far as spicy burgers/items go at restaurants, like most here, I fall into the camp of "none of it is very spicy." This Sriracha burger actually had me reaching for the water. They get a definite from me on the heat. The overall flavor was solid as well. The heat didn't overpower taste.

Still thinking about it a day later. It's a special/limited item, so I might have to go back before it's gone.

Sure, but a good $4-5 more than all of RR other burgers.

Re: Determining the Best Burger

I'm super cheap when it comes to food. I'd rather buy something that I don't crap out in a few hours. We went to Arby's last year with a friend and her kid and the total was like $50. Seriously? for like a few combo meals and a kids meal?

Anyway, the Halloween Whopper was okay, plus you got green poop, so that's a plus. I really like the BBQ Bacon burger at Habit Burger. Really good and cheap.

Arby's is ridiculously overpriced. If I'm ever wanting some I'll fly solo at lunch and not take the family.

I have to admit, in my many years on this earth this concept has never crossed my mind. You actually choose food based on how long it's going to take to crap out?

$2000 burger. They rang it up as $1100 plus tip...so they gave him a break.

Looks pretty good. Not sure if its $1100 good though.

Both what it looks like and what I'd do to it.

You're "not sure" if it $1100 good?

I prefer my gold foil to be around the lunar lander instead of my burger as tasty as gold foil looks...

I might pay $999 for it, but not $1100.

While Arby's is overpriced, there's no way your total was around $50 for 3 people. That would mean both your meals were around $20 each and the kid's was around $10. They aren't that overpriced lol.

Read the post again, it was at least four people. And with a side or two, I can see four meals closing in on $50 there.
