## PF Random Thoughts

 Quote by ╔(σ_σ)╝ It is definitely not a good thing to part with $20 for a burger but I am suprised that you guys think it is are extremely suprised by the price. There are far more expensive places or places that are considered relatively "regular" with such prices. For example, at the Jonny rockets next to my school a hot dog is about 5$ before tax.
I'd have to be without food for days and be the only place that I can get to before collapsing for me to pay $5 for a hotdog, unless it came with 3 1$ bills in the bag.

 Quote by Evo Back Yard Burgers and Hardee's (they taste the same) are the best tasting.
Both of these are too far away for me to try them out. When the weather is good (the weather is NOT good), I make my own back yard burgers. These are cheaper and taste better than any restaurant, fast food or otherwise. Remember to always make it a cheeseburger since charcoal broiled hamburgers have carcinogens.

I remember the first time (about 25 years ago) I paid $5 for a (very small) cup of (regular) coffee - at an international airport in Europe. I was tired and hungry - but not enough time to order a meal (they said it would take over an hour?). Upon return to NY, I was actually happy with the prices in the hotel restaurant.  Well in downtown toronto the cheapest hot dog you can get is about$3 and that is from thoes gross guys who hawk their product on a mobile hot dog stand. I will gladly pay $5 for a hot dog than eat from thoes guys. Mentor Blog Entries: 4  Quote by Jimmy Snyder Both of these are too far away for me to try them out.

Remember to always make it a cheeseburger since charcoal broiled hamburgers have carcinogens. This reminds me of a cook book I read recently that had a "recipe" for grilled burgers. It explained that you needed to use a lot of good charcoal, to make sure the coals were white hot and evenly placed. Make your meat patty, then securely wrap and seal it in aluminum foil before placing it on the grill to cook. This method, they said, guaranteed juicy burgers and eliminated messy grill cleanup.

Lemme guess it was in Holland ? XD

I have on a few occasions had to pay about 3 euro from a cup of coffee or 2 euro for a 500ml bottle of water.

Just for general info, the Back Yard Burger stores use a gas grill with ceramic coals - not as bad. I'm not certain about Hardee's. I think they might have steel angles covering the gas flames - like a chicken char-broiler?

I havent had the pleasure of trying a Back Yard Burgers burger, but have you had a chance to try a 5 Guys Burgers and Fries burger? They would get my vote for the best burger. I was introduced to them in D.C. but the chain has since expanded westward to my neck of the woods. The only thing I have a problem with is that it is impossible to order one anything less than well done, but they are still very juicy. I suppose it has something to do with where the chain originated, the home of unnecessary regulation.

5 Guys Burgers are good, but not quite as tasty. There is something *beefier* tasting about the angus that BYB and Hardees uses. Smash Burger makes a good burger if you like their haystack onions, (I love french fried onions) but boy do they make a burger greasy!

To enjoy 5 Guys, I need to have a taste for grease. The cook thin burgers on a flat grill - reminds me of Steak and Shake.

In the D.C. area - I like Jerry's (cheesesteaks and pizza) and the Peruvian chicken places.

I think thats what I like about them, they bring back memories of the greasy burgers I had as a child, fried on the stove. I never had a Steak and Shake burger that ever compared, but I have only eaten at one or two when I was in Indy, I havent seen one west of the mississippi, yet.

Evo, I guess I will have to go try a Hardees burger, we have those out here.

We do have a small ma and pa place here that was featured on Diners and Drives(sorry I dont remember the name), they have an elk burger that is to die for.

 My wife is babysitting a 2 year old. He asked me if he could have Rice Krispy's? I was typing on PF and said yes - I'll be right there. I didn't see that he had the box open and ready. The whole event took about 10 seconds; he asked me the question, I responded, I noticed he had the box open, he declared to the puppies "Rice Krispies!", he dumped the entire (giant sized) box on the carpet, and he and the puppies dove into the pile face first. It took a little longer for me to clean it up. I'll never be done explaining how it happened.

LOL!

A 2 year old asking permission to do something means they've already started, they're actually just letting you know.
 Admin I don't get it. You said your WIFE does the babysitting.
