    Hmm… I think if your “thing” is custom-ordered burgers, then you should be able to make hundreds of completely different burgers toppings without messing up so many of them. I’d probably give them another try and if they messed up our order again, we’d just stop going.

    I’ve had a teriyaki burger with pineapple before, but never one with bacon, too. I guess it’s not too different from a hawaiian pizza…

      I don’t like Hawaiian pizza, either. I’m pretty anti-pineapple. Jake also likes peanut butter burgers with bacon. It’s another weird combination. I agree that they should be a bit more on top of their orders, especially if customizing it was they specialize in. Perhaps they were having a bad day. Perhaps they were trying to play “guess what toppings this customer wants” and injected their own ideas. Who knows haha!

    I was planning on taking my parents out there this past weekend but they turned me down! They explained that they didn’t want to think about their food and that they would be overwhelmed with all of the options (crazy, I know!) Do you think it’s a generational thing? I’m a picky eater so I LOVE when I get the option to fully customize anything.

    Hi Stephania – Hmm, maybe. I don’t think my folks are like that though. You should have told them they have “pre-built” burgers available 🙂
