The Billy Goat's Bun Problem: Would Another Bun Work Better Than the Kaiser Roll?

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.

Correction: glad you made it to Kopp's for the shake (the burger is not impressive)

Hamburger America: Dick's Drive-In in Seattle, Washington

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...

Hamburger America: Dick's Drive-In in Seattle, Washington

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."
