Cheeburger Cheeburger Challenge

Lately, I’ve been staying in Long Island for work, so I’ve checked out a few of the local restaurants, always in pursuit of something new and interesting. Last week, I stumbled into Cheeburger Cheeburger, which offers a tremendous variety of burgers, toppings and shakes – enough to keep any American on the last notch of their belt. I had a fantastic burger, sweet potato fries and shake but it wasn’t till the end that I realised I’d missed my chance to get my photo on the wall by eating their signature one-pounder burger. I smelled a challenge and I had to come back.

This week was my time to meet that challenge. I placed my order and, somewhere in the kitchen, a pounder’s knees started knocking together. I ate it in good time with nary a pause and the whole affair was over in a flash. The experience was almost a little boring. They put my photo on the wall and I learned from my waiter that they actually do a 2 pounder too but it’s not on the menu. Given the ease of the 1, I think I’ll have to return for the 2. The 1 looked like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k89JmJEXkCU#t=2m45s

Why is the place called Cheeburger Cheegurger? It comes from a 1978 SNL skit with John Belushi, Dan Akroyd and Bill Murray. http://www.hulu.com/#!watch/3533

    Jord tried to order a 2 pounder at Maca’s but they told him it was against the law. Must be like the RSA (responsible service of alcohol) law applied to food.

    Congratulations on your burger marathon, but I do like how you call a cheeseburger joint a restaurant! Next you’ll be calling McDonald’s one as well! :P
