If you’re gonna have a burger, have a burger!  A real one.  With lots and lots of stuff on it!

This was an 8oz wagyu burger – what they call American Kobe.  I’ve never had real kobe beef and am not in a hurry to part with the funds necessary to do so, but these are pretty good burgers.  And they’re made even better with cheese, bacon, lettuce (iceberg, of course!) tomato, red onion, pickles, mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard.

And french fries.

A burger such as this is not easy to consume.  In fact, it’s down-right difficult.  Even cut in half, everything is slipping and sliding, juices dripping everywhere.  It’s a mess.  But what a fantastic-tasting mess!

It takes numerous napkins – we just bring the roll of paper towels to the table – and even then, we have to wash hands up to the elbows when we’re done.

And it’s seriously worth every bite.
