CDADave: I Know Why They Call ‘Em Gut Bombs

I got hungry for a cheeseburger the other night. Sometimes there’s nothing as satisfying as a big hot n’ sloppy greasy cheeseburger. So I went up to Jack In The Box and ordered their “ultimate cheeseburger” from the drive-thru and salivated all the way home waiting to bite into the thing. So I did get home and I did bite the burger, verily…it tasted like “something”; but it was just kinda dry, the cheese was dry, the catsup (ketchup?) seemed to be dryly baked into the meat, and if there was grease in there, it, too, solidified. That was three days ago, and I’m sure that burger is still banging away inside my digestive tract somewhere. Had the Gov’t Way bridge not been out, I woulda gone to “Carl’s Jr.”…they make a pretty mean flame-broiled burger. Perhaps “Jack In The Box” should cut back on its advertising budget and focus their finances on cheeseburger-making instead.

Question: Next to Hudson’s Hamburgers on Sherman, where’s the best burger place in town?
