How do people feel about Burger House? I understand they have something like 8 locations now. I grew up eating at the one on Hillcrest and recall furious familial debates over Burger House vs. Ball's. My parents liked Ball's, and only now have I realized it's probably because they could get a beer there.

Anyway, a Double-Double with grilled onions, mayo and mustard, extra pickles, fries and a cherry coke, consumed at the counter was about as good as it got for a long time. I was always amazed by the pictures of groomsmen in tuxedos grabbing a burger before the wedding. I'm sure their brides appreciated everyone smelling like cheese burgers.

And one more thing: what's up with the 5x5 and 10x10 burgers they have now? I find it amazing that for the first say 50 years of their existance a Double-Double was about all anyone would ever attempt to eat. Now some wack jobs eat ten patties.
