Cheeseburger Chronicles #003, #004 & #005



I’m just chugging right along here folks, just eight days into the new year and my burger count is steadily on the rise.

Last night I went out for “one beer” and, as one might expect, found myself coaxed, swindled, bamboozled into having an extra beverage or two. As such, today was most definitely a cheeseburger kind of day.

I intended to go to Four Burgers to get my greasy, melty goodness but the line was huge and there was nowhere to sit.

Unfortunately, my desire for a burger and lack of time combined in the cataclysmic decision to meander into Wendy’s in Central Square.

Now, for those not “in the know” the Wendy’s in Central Square is awful. Abso-f’n-lutely awful. Historically awful. The type of awful that prompts the creation of silent indie films.

Seriously, folks, we’re talking absolutely abysmal in every single way possible.

It did, however, have one thing going for it today at lunch.

It was there.

So I went inside and ordered some burgers that have been deemed—by the incomparable Ryan Gray—as “shame-broiled.”

Without any further ado, the three newest additions to the Cheeseburger Chronicles…


Cheeseburger #003


What: Junior Bacon Cheeseburger

Where: Ghetto Wendy’s in Cambridge

When: January 8, 2010

How (was it): This one, in all reality, was not too bad—or at least as “not too bad” as anything at Wendy’s can be—and it really hit the spot. The bacon was crispy, the burger was hot, the cheese was all melty and the bun was soft.




++++++++++++++++++++++++


Cheeseburger #004


What: Junior Bacon Cheeseburger

Where: Ghetto Wendy’s in Cambridge

When: January 8, 2010

How (was it): As if often the case at Wendy’s thing can go downhill quickly and that’s exactly what happened with my second-installment of JBC action. The cheese wasn’t melted, the lettuce looked like death and it was all slathered in mayo like they’d bathed it in the stuff. Gross.



++++++++++++++++++++++++


Cheeseburger #005


What: Junior Bacon Cheeseburger

Where: Ghetto Wendy’s in Cambridge

When: January 8, 2010

How (was it): This one was just f’n ridiculous. The bun was hard and crunchy. I ended up throwing away the bottom of the bun because it was so gross. The cheese wasn’t even remotely melted and the entire burger was cold. On the bright-side, it was greasy than the other two burger combined?! Double gross.
