Triple much better. It's true! Or a double on the 'kid's bun' (at least that's what Sam calls it...). I'm still a fan of the kaiser roll because that's a big part of the Billy Goat experience. Just man-up and get the triple.
I saw Sam today and will be there again on Sunday nite. I was with a producer from the film fest who had never been there before and she told me, "I want to be drinking at that bar, now." It was 11:45am.
It's OK that Richman doesn't care much for the LA burger scene - no one really gives a crap about his opinions anyway.
No Bearnaise Burger? WTF?? Someone over there has lost their mind. That was one of the best burgers in NYC.
When is it opening?
Absolutely fascinating. Thanks for this Kenji.
It's a great burger and looks like Nick missed out on the winner at Black Shack - their Western Burger which is piled high with house-made crispy onions. And the shakes kick some ass.
Pretty map, but did you notice that almost 100 of them are Blake's Lotaburger?
Great job Nick! What amazing research. I had no idea there were so many 'Whites' in North Jersey. Is someone buying White Diamond?
Ugh, ketchup. have you people learned anything?
Oh you'll know which burger is which...
What a loss. Another primary source for the Great American Hamburger is gone.
No!, Cosby gave his kids chocolate cake for breakfast, because it has eggs in it...
Whew. Glad that was a joke. I thought the Brit had lost his marbles...
Correction: glad you made it to Kopp's for the shake (the burger is not impressive)
Huge mistake skipping the Solly's Butter Burger with stewed onions! Glad you made it to Kopp's though.
I didn't need that, and I especially did not need the Zapruder-esqe slo-mo on the YouTube link...
The bun-to-beef ratio looks waaaay off. That's alota bun...
If one more person blames a farting cow for global warming I'm going to freak out.
blt76- I never submitted a photo of the Dick's Double to the publisher because the one I shot wasn't too pretty. After looking at it again (5 mins ago) I'm realizing that it looks better than I remember...
Adam- Sir Mix-A-Lot is mentioned in the book but removed from this 'abridged' version, Here's the line from the book:
"Even Sir Mix-A-Lot, Grammy Award winner and Seattle native, immortalized the Broadway location in his first hit song. In the lyrics, his posse skips Taco Bell for Dick's. The truth is, if there were more places like Dick's, serving wholesome fast food, we'd all be skipping Taco Bell."
now THAT'S funny
Any bozo that puts Fuddruckers on a best-of list should have their head checked.
Medium -Well...yikes! At least he ordered a burger. He probably had plenty of choices. Someone has to sneak some Gulden's onto that plane though...
I love that Josh yelled at him (at the end). Let's go to Hildebrandt's.
