A biased comparison of pressed meats. Why? Because I want to write a food review.
Kanab, Ut; The Junction; The Big Red Burger: It’s called the Big Red because of the high school team colors. And perhaps because of ketchup. Catsup. Thingy.
The big red is a double patty, ham, cheese, veggies delight. One thing I’m a bit against is pre-saucing. I don’t like it when restaurants put my sauces on my burger for me. The Junction is infamous for placing mustard on the burger. I think it’s too bad. Add to that the thinner patties and I’m in a bad mood. They do grill the bun, which makes for nice crunchy edges, but the overall burger left me feeling flat and missing my Hermie Burger.
Cedar City, Ut; Hermies; The Hermie Burger: This is the winner of the competition by far. It’s a whole lot of food and not too expensive. Another great double decker with all the essentials, there was nothing I didn’t like about it.
Anywhere, Wendy’s; Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger: This is a great burger for the price. I love that they only put mayonnaise on the burger and it’s actually got a leaf of lettuce. The patty is a little small, but at least they tell you it’s a junior. I can down 2 or 3 of these daily if given opportunity.
Cedar City, Ut; The T-Bird Grill; The Double Decker Burger: This is a pretty grotesque burger, but it’s so carnally satisfying that I have eaten it twice. The bacon is thick but barely cooked, forcing you to yank pieces off with your teeth. The burger is topped with fry sauce – and I know how I feel about pre-saucing. It comes in a piece of paper with a toothpick sticking through it. It’s also usually leaking grease, sauce, and the blood of innocent lettuce. It’s not the best tasting burger, but guaranteed to make you feel more like a jackal when you eat it. It rises far above the Carls Jr. mess level and creates a whole new land of mess that hasn’t been seen since the time of the 60s roadside diner.
Now I am bored of writing about burgers.
And I’m hungry.
