HBO — to Family Phil

Family Phil (re: best sandwiches): "Hudson's is awesome I don't get it. Talk about "plain, plain, plain"... The hamburger I had at Hudson's was decent enough. I mean, he cooked it. But it was just a bun, a beefy patty, and a couple of pickles. Smaller than the kid's cheeseburger at McDonald's, at three times the price. Why do people rave about this tiny little burger that is gone in three mouthfuls and leaves you hungry for something more?"

DFO: I have to make a confession. I've had two Hudson's hamburgers -- ever. Once, before I moved here, with Doug Clark. Nothing against the hamburger because I know it only by reputation. I simply don't like bellying up to a counter, shoulder to shoulder with others when I eat. Then, I have this deep-seeded fear that I might ask for fries inadvertently -- and get laughed out of the place. BTW, one of my best Huckleberries ever featured a incident at Hudson's -- helped me win a national award.
