Contrary to what you might think, I try to eat relatively healthy the majority of the time. However, when I am on business or a vacation, I seem to think that if I am out of the zip code, calories don’t count. Plus, since I have been on a whirlwind tour for work this week (in Atlanta, back to Indy, Houston and Salt Lake City), those rules did not apply and I just wanted a burger and fries.
What I Ate: Hickory Burger; $9.50. 1/3 lb burger with barbecue sauce, bacon, onion rings, cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato.
I have had this kind of a burger a million times before, but it just sounded like the fatty meal that I was craving at the time. Good news…it did the trick.
This seemed like it was a bigger burger than a 1/3 lb. I had to unlock my jaw to take my first bite. The meat was cooked to medium well, the sesame seed bun was flattened and held the burger nicely. The cheese was more oily than creamy and I wish that there was a little more barbecue sauce on the burger, but that was my only complaint. It was actually a good burger.
The fries hit the spot. Nothing special, but thin cut (almost Steak ’n Shake thin).
Would I Buy It Again? Sure, why not?! Quick and attentive service and if you are wanting a meal where you want fried, cheesy, beefy goodness and are stuck in an airport, this will do the trick. However, I must warn you, if you have a long flight and are in the middle seat, you might want to re-think this meal as you will feel pretty fat and bloated (more than usual at least).
