    The Great American Burger in pictures!!

    Hank's in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

    This is "The Big Okie" with cheese--4 meat patties! I also ordered the popular option of pressing the onions into the meat as it grills.

    The Bomber Burger in Wichita, Kansas. I stupidly ordered the double cheeseburger. 24 ounces of meat, local fresh never frozen ("ground chuck, seasoned with my secret seasoning", said the owner.), Couldn't even attempt to fit my mouth around it!

    Bomber Burger (a one man operation) has excellent hand-cut fries too! He does press down on the patties while cooking, squishing out some of the moisture and fat (which I don't like to seen done).

    close up of how tall it is..

    Not the fanciest place, eh?

    more of the fast food variety

    Dickie Jo's in Eugene, Oregon. One of the better among the fresh and sustainable upscale drive-in burger joint craze that is sweeping the country. The buns are baked on site.

    Here's one of my many In-and-Out Double Double Animal Style burgers--from July of this year, Tropicana Rd location in Las Vegas!


    U9ALSIP.jpg


    In addition to the standard toppings, animal style burgers include: pickles, extra spread, with grilled onions and mustard fried onto each meat patty.



    Tillamook Cheeseburger from the Burgerville location in Salem, Oregon. Fine tasting with that quality cheese and excellent secret sauce. Unfortunately the fries are just average.


    e6NnbBl.jpg

    Burgerville’s Tillamook Cheeseburger has 130 more calories and 13 more grams of fat than McDonald’s quarter pounder with cheese!




    5 Guys cheeseburger, Stockton, CA. Fries here are much better!

    "Consumer Reports" surveyed 28,000 subscribers on "the best- and worst-tasting burgers around the U.S", published the results a few months ago.

    The top two
    (In-N-Out and Five Guys) came out in virtual tie for 1st. The McDonald's tested was the plain basic burger. No doubt the Quarter Pounder or Big Mac would have scored somewhat higher.

    1. In-N-Out Burger
    2. Five Guys Burgers and Fries
    3. Fuddruckers

    After I saw that episode of Triple D I tried that way of pressing the burger into the onions. It was good and I think thinly sliced onions would have tasted even better!

    da very fine "Pitts Burger" at Casino El Camino on 6th Street, Austin, TX. Never frozen ground chuck cooked medium, sauteed mushrooms and grilled onions on grilled bun with A-1 sauce. Hand cut fries.

    I've eaten at Casino El Camino going back 11 years and don't think I've ever ordered a different burger here! I think I'll experiment with the Buffalo burger next. Owners are actually from Buffalo, so they know how to make that shit.

    Naturally, "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives" paid a visit:

    Green Chili Cheeseburger, at the famous Owl Bar & Cafe, San Antonio, New Mexico.

    A terrific homemade peppered beef patty with all that fine green chili and cheese!

    EQgBY1v.jpg


    This long beautiful hardwood bar inside was from the original Hilton Hotel. It was crafted by the Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. (later famous for it's bowling balls). Conrad Hilton was born in San Antonio, NM, and had his first hotel here (really, his dad's glorified Crystal Palace bar).

    after it burned some CCC boys offered to salvage and move the bar to the Owl for payment in beer and beef. It took two days.

    You can get hamburguesa con queso y chile all over New Mexico. There is even a version available off the $1 menu at McDonald's in New Mexico!

    But ya gotta love getting them in homey little bars, with nothing but at truck and my Chevy Prizm parked in front

    for those like me who didn't have a clue..


    Pescetarianism is the practice of a diet that includes seafood, and excludes other animals. In addition to fish and/or shellfish, a pescetarian diet typically includes some or all of vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, beans, eggs and dairy. The Merriam-Webster dictionary dates the origin of the term "pescetarian" to 1993 and defines it to mean: "one whose diet includes fish but no meat".[1]

    My step-father was on that program from about 1965 to 1987 when he died of a heart attack at the age of 64

    He never made my mom, me, or sister get on the plan but he sure preached to us for years and years. He quit smoking about the same time he started the new diet. Vegetarian, he called it.

    No, just sayin'

    His diet, his 5 mile daily walks, everything he did, we all expected him to live to be 100, and so did HE!

    Life expectancy is higher than ever and I highly doubt it's because of the better diets.

    I purchased one of your books, but have yet to read it. I tend to read more early in the year, so will be getting to it soon.

    I've actually done this for a few months at a time over the past few years for health purposes. I also cut our dairy, except for when I go out to dinner. My bad cholesterol trends extremely high. Basically, I am eating fatty fish 2-4 times weekly, plus daily portions of legumes, veggies, oatmeal, fruit, supplemented by flax seeds, fish oil(pharm grade), flash frozen wheat grass juice.

    Broadway 5050, San Antonio. The excellent "El Jeffe" burger--their signature rectangular burger with blue cheese and pico de gallo. All the burgers on menu are named after moments from "from Pulp Fiction".

    The meat was of the greasy "juicy" variety, they sure didn't squeeze and press down on the patty while cooking on the grill! Bun was nicely toasted but the blue cheese was too much, had to scrape off a bit to keep it from overpowering the meat flavor. Tater tots were good!

    Macho Tostada Burger!!

    a2d0vqs.jpg

    The famous Macho Tostada Burger at Chris Madrid's, San Antonio, Texas. Meat is regular (1/3rd pound) or "Macho" (1/2 pound). As you can see, the seasoned meat patty is bigger than the bun and sticks out all around the bun edge with it's cheddar cheese. Gotta like that! And the bun was perfect example of the soft pillow variety, warmed with grease that glistened and caused camera problems with the reflection.

    a dissection photo of the eating delight displays the re-fried beans and nice crunch corn nacho chips that make up this burger.

    dXuJB5o.jpg

    for those don't know, Tostadas are a sort of flat tacos made by layering first refried beans (then other stuff on that) on top of a fried, crunchy and flat corn tortilla.

    iFviCx7.jpg

    The Tostada Burger at Chris Madrid's (established 1977) is probably the most famous of the various "bean burgers" you find around the city....update 2018 - there was a fire at the place last year, it re-opened recently. Burgers are up to snuff like days of old, but locals complain the great fries are no more...
