Cheeburger Cheeburger

Jonathan and I felt like burgers, so we headed over toward Sesame Place, where Cheeburger Cheeburger is. Ironically, it's less than a quarter-mile from Cheeseburger in Paradise, so I'm surprised they both get a lot of business!

It's a diner in style and concept, and we were greeted by a fabulous host (who Jonathan suspects may have been an owner), who explained their menu. It's not hard, it's just big. If you want a salad or a wrap, there's a lot of options. If you want a burger you pick your size (5.5 oz, 7 oz, 10 oz, 14oz, and 20 oz), then your cheese (8 choices), and your toppings (30 toppings - ALL FREE). There's a few premium items, like sauteed onions, portabello mushrooms, and bacon - they cost extra.

Jonathan got American cheese on his, but very little else. I chose CheddarJack with tomatoes, pickles, onions, and grey poupon. Next time I'd try a different sauce (there's many), as grey poupon is a little strong for a burger. Otherwise, it was delicious, and we both brought home leftovers. We also got the "best of both basket" filled with fries (the kind with skin) and the BEST onion rings of my life. We couldn't even finish a half-order, and know next time to just get the onion rings! They have five dipping sauces for these items, and we tried three... the creamy cheese (I thought it was salty, JB liked it), the zesty horseradish (fantastic with the onion rings!), and the sweet pepper (strange aftertaste... kinda oily).

We got milkshakes to go (they have like 80 flavors!!), and I'd recommend getting them to go, since they get better after they're a little melty. I got the regular and Jonathan got the small... the regular is definitely a better deal, LoL. I had the s'mores flavor, he had the Take 5 flavor (with all of the ingredients of the candy bar). I adored mine straight through til the end, and Jonathan liked his while munching on some pretzels to balance out the sweet-salty.

Last bit to note: the tables all have laminated trivial pursuit cards to keep you occupied while you wait... and since we like that sort of thing we had a good time even before our meals got there! They have a bunch of deals, too - including platters and dinner-and-a-movie deals. We'll be back when we need a burger fix!
