Pretty cool...but there's no way i'd be getting my money's worth with a $35 ticket.....and I'd hate myself the next day if I ate $35 worth of hamburger.

I'm thinking the samples will be slider size, if not smaller.

Still, I'm with you. That's a lot of hamburger.

I think the point of the event is to raise money for charity.

True, but there are going to be people who will eat (or try to) $35 worth of burger.

The $15 portion seems more reasonable.

I think it could also depend on how strictly that are using the term “burger.” If they are talking about standard ground beef, then that seems a little much. If they’re going to be vending burgers made of lamb, tuna, bison, or similar more esoteric meats, then that price might not be unreasonable.

I had breakfast at a Cracker Barrel on Sunday and it was the must disgusting meal I have ever had in my life.

haha, I haven't been there in years. I actually just had a sudden flashback and realized the last time I went there was with a date in HS for dinner, but for the life of me I can't remember who with. And why in God's name did I take her to Cracker Barrel?

I've been there for coffee and blackberry cobbler before and that was just fine.
But I will never go back to one of them after that meal.

Not bad. Usually a long wait at the one I go to so I prefer Eat N Park over it. Country Fried steak FTW

Its been a while since I've gone to Winghart's. I think I like Burgatory better but will have to revisit. I have yet to try BRGR.

This is exactly what I had.

The eggs were inedible.
The HBC was an abomination of flavor.
The gravy tasted like paste.
The sausage tasted like it was cooked on a lawnmower engine.

I didn't get a beef burger at burgatory so I want to go back. I had the Buffaloed bison burger which was very good. some in my party said five guys is better than burgatory but I dont think so. I think they're different entities and can't compare them that easily. One guy even said Red Robin was better than burgatory, which I almost punched him in the face.
