Good Good Time
With thoughts of the UEPa meeting taking place this same day, we head to Cheeburger Cheeburger for dinner. This place has the biggest burger in the area that I know of*. The patty is 20 ounces (pre-cooked weight). I did not bring the scale so I don't know with certainty what the finished product weighs - meat, bun, toppings - but their menu calls it the Pounder so we'll go with that. One pound.
Eat it and get your photo on their wall. So I had that in mind - eat one, have a malt or a shake, get on their wall, and leave.
The olive on top is a big olive not a normal puny one so the burger is a little more impressive than the photo shows.
It looks good!
Another shot of it.
Toppings were onion, onion rings and fries.
So I began. Cooked to the medium rare. The beef was really quite good, the bun was sort of french bread consistency and lightly buttered.
One down. Team TAM wanted more! Do another! Well, yeah, but 10 bucks...
So the waitress comes over. "Anything else? Maybe an ice cream shake?" "Another..."
So another on the way. I had to wait a good 15 or 20 minutes for the 2nd to arrive, but it does..
This one is not cooked as deliciously as the first. It's just before well-done.
I have to finish that beef chunk that fell off..
A final swish to get it all.
After you finish they make you hold this stuffed burger. They announce to the other patrons in the restaurant.
This Cheeburger Cheeburger has only been open for a month or so. There are 15 or twenty photos on the wall of people who've eaten the Pounder. But no one up to this had eaten two. Woohoo! Not a huge feat, but being first is always nice. We'll see happens.
* - if anybody knows of bigger burgers around Denver, let me know! Also, the only eating challenge I know of in this area is at Beau Jo's. Know of some others?
