Cheeseburger Chronicles #040

Fridays are just good burger days.

There’s really no denying it, is there?! It seems that come lunch time every Friday, all I wanna do is run out and find a big ole greasy burger and shove it in my face.

Perhaps this is merely an example of how I approach Andrew Miller’s “Pimp Your Friday” philosophy or perhaps it is because I’m a burger-lovin’ fatty who never packs a lunch?!

Either way, Friday is burger day.

This Friday was no exception to the rule, especially after my Thursday night fantasy baseball draft went roughly twice as long as I’d anticipated and threw off my agenda for the evening.

As a result, I was pretty tired and worthless on Friday. Nothing cures tired and worthless quite like a cheeseburger.

Without any further ado, here is the latest entry:

Cheeseburger #040

What: Cheeseburger

Where: Four Burgers

When: March 26, 2010

How (was it): Unfortunately, I’ve got to admit that this was—without a doubt—the worst burger I have ever had at Four Burgers.

Now don’t think for a second that this implies it was an awful burger or something. The burger itself was still pretty good and I wouldn’t say no if offered an identical, meaty clone.

It was a tad overcooked and (note: this is just me being anal) the cheese wasn’t melted.

I’ve always had a serious issue with cheeseburgers that don’t have melted cheese. Something about the concept of a rigid slice of cheese on a burger really bugs me.

McDonald’s—at some point in the early 2000s—started churning out burgers with unmelted cheese and I always found it incredibly unnerving.

If it ain’t melted, it’s not a cheeseburger, it’s a burger with a slice of cheese on top of it. The cheese needs to be melted so that it becomes an integral part of the burger’s architecture.

…anyway, I’ve clearly gone off on a tangent.

The burger was good, but not great. Four Burgers has been great roughly 98.3% of the times I’ve eaten there, so to get a good burger was a little disappointing.

In the grand scheme of things, however, this was still probably one of the top 10-15 burgers I’ve had all year. Which isn’t saying much for most of the crap I’ve been shoving in my face.

  1. You aren’t just being anal, or you at least aren’t alone in your anal-ness. Unmelted cheese on a burger is bleh. The texture is all wrong, it’s like lukewarm and unpleasant and just… melted cheese is so perfect and delicious. So when it’s just a slab? It makes me 😦

    And now I am going to have to get a burger for lunch. YOU FIEND.
