Cheeseburger Chronicles #010

Well folks, we’ve officially hit double-digits.

If I keep up my current pace—which has slowed slightly in the past week due to concerns from Grace that I’ll die before June—I’d finish the year having eaten a total of roughly 228 cheeseburgers.

Perhaps Grace’s fears aren’t completely unfounded.

Cheeseburger #010

What: Bacon Cheeseburger

Where: Fresco’s

When: January 16, 2010

How (was it): This Fresco’s burger was way better than the one I had last week, which is saying something, because last week’s was pretty solid.

I asked the lovely gal behind the counter to go a little crazy with some salt and pepper while the burger was cooking and it really gave things a little more flavor and kick.

Additionally, the aforementioned lovely gal started dressing the bun incorrectly—they usually just do veggies on one bun—and ended up putting them on the bottom bun before realizing the mistake. I told her just to throw some more mayo, pickles (mmmmmmm) and lettuce on the top bun and it’d be fine.

It was AMAZING. Having the veggies distributed on both sides of the burger is bad-ass. It makes for a great crunch the whole way through and really balances out the flavors. I may never load up just one half of a burger again.
