Short and sweet...

Your hamburger sliders...

"The hamburger slider patties at Bingas have given new definition to the word thin"
"Confucious... 2000BC"

* If you are going to grill them to charcoal...maybe they could at least be hot.
* Put the cheese on before they get cold...while they are being burned and it will melt.
* If the lettuce and tomato are going to be the only hint of moisture on the sandy textured pre-made patties...try and make them a little less than three times the size of the entire slider.
* The role was fresh...and nice and cold...a slider should have some heat to it... so the thing is soft...put a lid over the whole thing so the roll is warm.

Did I mention the pre made frozen burgers were burned?

Fundamentals...basics....if I had thought someone cared ... I would have sent the little pockets of acridity and dryness back...I think I am having trouble breathing today from the driveway sealer tasting little blackened disks of that's just the water backing up in my throat after they little bolus of cow stopped up my internal plumbing.

Who were those guys out front smoking, tatted up, pierced...dressed in black etc...were they your version of the welcome man at Walmart? They send a distinct message of "this is not going to be good"...

Can I get my money back?

Not to be one sided...The beer and fried pickles were good...service was fine...
