International Business Times ^ | September 18 2013 11:55 AM | Howard Koplowitz

Posted on 09/18/2013 11:46:14 AM PDT by Olog-hai

Wednesday, Sept. 18, marks National Cheeseburger Day, and many national chains and local burger joints are celebrating by giving away free burgers.

Since its origin in the early 1920s, the cheeseburger is one of America’s most beloved foods and certainly worthy of its own national (but unofficial) day. …

Putting cheese on a good hamburger is a sign of lunacy.

Very thin buns. Light mustard, good veggies. Meat at least an half inch thick.

Mrs. R2 was at Sonic the other day. Wanted a hamburger. They had a BOGO free offer on cheeseburgers So OK, she asks if she can have hamburgers instead.

Sure. But she would have to pull full price for that. So she asks if she can order cheeseburgers and hold the cheeese. Yeah, they could do that. And they did. And only charged her for one.

It's not a cheeseburger, but the Burger King $1 bacon burger is the best deal for the money that I know of.

Thin buns, mayo, grilled red onions, sauteed mushrooms, beefsteak tomato slices and home grown beef - half inch thick medium rare. Just what we had on Saturday and Sunday. Juice running down your chin and arm yum yum good!

That happened to me when McD started 99 cent double cheeseburgers. I ordered a double hamburger and it was $1.50. I said, okay, make it a double cheese and hold the cheese. Clerked laughed and admitted to the lunacy of it all and I got my double McD no cheese.

Sounds great!

My girl and I will go to Fuddruckers and split a rare one pound burger (one pound is a lot cheaper than two half-pounders).

We each load up with what veggies we want. Instead of paying $1.00 for cheese, she uses the nacho cheese on the bar.

We always leave happy.

We used to buy McD’s double cheeseburger with nothing on it for our dog. He loved them. Unfortunately, he secumbed to Pancreatic Cancer in Feb. We miss him a lot.

This write up is pretty good. I just had lunch. And already I'm hungry.

 

Chris Madrid’s – San Antonio, Texas (9.0)

Chris Madrids

I am going to introduce you, if you aren’t already familiar, with San Antonio burger royalty. Chris Madrid’s. This is a San Antonio right of passage. In this institution you won’t find a health loving, better-life burger that will leave you ready to embrace a healthy green future. What you will find is a burger that does not apologize for anything that burgers exist for. Cheese. Meat. Butter-toasted buns. Circumference. Grease. Good God the grease!

Yes, Chris Madrids was omitted from Texas Monthly’s 50 Best Burgers in Texas. Yeah, it somewhat goes against my “just right burger-size,” what am i talking about, Chris Madrids obliterates that. But what you need to understand is that there is something entirely magical about what the cheese is doing. It’s beyond sex, it is cheese globs sblobbing and drobbling all over your sweet little face. If you even make it half way through this beast, you can consider your burger-innocence completely and thoroughly BURGERED. And even if you ever do stop making out with the cheese ( i never did), there’s a patty there that never went understated. Made on a grill that has seen its share of San Antonio times, that patty wants you to want it. This place is a staple, a must, a always come back, a best memory for sure.

Chris Madrids Menu

Originally opened as a burger and taco establishment by a University of Texas Marketing graduate in 1977, the tacos were soon phased out by the awesomeness of the burgers. The menu is pretty simple with six headlining burgers that come in two sizes: regular and MACHO. A beastly chicken sandwich, chalupas, nachos and fries round up the menu with a very inviting bar located on the other side of the restaurant.

Chris Madrids Tostada Burger

I went for the regular Cheddar Cheesy minus the onions. While other members of the burger team pledged an undying loyalty to the Tostada Burger. As you can see, eating this burger isn’t a clean event. I was privy to witness my burger comrades eating the Tostada Burger two different ways. The successful method being an approach that treats the burger as a pizza, or perhaps that famous Latin cuisine: Tostada. Kyle Pippin, in a moment of Tostada burger completion ecstasy stated the event was definitely “Intercourse inducing” (weirdly true). While the fries are subpar, I’ve had encounters with the nachos that are other wordly.

Cheddar Cheezy

There’s always a line. You might always have to have half your party scouting for a table while the other half waits in line and orders. There’s an atmosphere that tells you you’re eating somewhere that means something to San Antonians. And it does. The burgers do. A section on the Chris Madrid’s site allows for personal stories. There you’ll find 98 stories of testament to the institution. You need to go eat at Chris Madrids. EAT IT- because it’s a 9. Eat it ’cause your arteries want it.

Darn you, Slim. I just ate, and now I'm hungry again.

I just recently tried the sopaipilla burger at Casa de Benavides on 4th in ABQ. Yum. Medium burger, so juicy. Good green chile.

Love Fuddruckers. Only one close to me closed a year or so ago. We used to split the one pounder even when we had money.

Grandson loves Wendy’s so stopped there Monday on the way home for school to get him a $.99 Junior Bacon burger. Without bacon is now $1.19, with bacon $1.69.

Went on home and fixed him one there for a whole lot less than $1.69. At least they still have Frosty’s for $.99 but man are they small now.

Right on! One of the best fast-food burgers out there (other than In'N Out) is a Six Dollar bacon-guacamole cheeseburger from Carl's Jr. (or Hardee's), with a slice of green chile (and the usual lettuce, tomato and red onion), without the gucky "santa fe" sauce. Now I'm drooling at your photo :-)

Not crazy. Stupid.

This is an example of how computers rule our lives. We have to do what the computers say, not the computers doing as WE wish.

Here’s what happened: Minimum wage kid is in front of a screen with GUI buttons, like on your smart phone. If the kid punches “hamburger”, the computer brings up the regular price. If she punches “cheeseburger”, the BOGO special price comes up.

SO - while she could have done it on her own, she probably did not think about it. She was working the way the machine wanted her to work. I’ll bet $100 that’s what happened.

One of my pet peeves.

How about the MWK receiving a $2.00 bill and calling the manager to ‘check it out’. Manager chastises here and belittles her in front of customer and he tells her just take the money, put in how much and the machine will tell you how much change to give.

Of course, she followed his advice to the letter when a couple of days later a customer handed her a $40.00 bill......

Basically a true story BUT the bill involved was a $200.00 and she gladly handed out the change. I think she got canned NOT for the mistake but for accepting a bill OVER 20 without Manager Approval.....

Putting cheese on a good hamburger is a sign of lunacy.

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only the cheeseburger will remain.

I occasionally ate at Tommy’s when I was attending Cal Poly Pomona. I still have no idea what they were like, as I was never sober when I ate there. :)

It was also during that period that I developed my love for In-N-Out Burger.
