A Burger A Day

big o | Jul 26, 2006 08:55 PM

For no real good reason, possibly other than self abuse, I've decided to have a burger for lunch each day this week.

I work near the King Street Metro, and have been (and will continue) allowing that to play a role in restaurant selection. On Monday, I went to the Hard Times Cafe on King Street, inadvertently taking advantage of their Half-Priced Burger Mondays deal. Yesterday, I went to Ted's Montana Grill, inadvertently taking advantage of nothing in particular. Today's burger came courtesy of the Five Guys on Fayette Street.

While I'm not making an effort to find Alexandria's best burger, if I had to rank the three thus far, it'd be the Ted's New Mexico bison burger followed by the Hard Times bacon cheeseburger followed by the Five Guy's cheeseburger.

I've got my meal for tomorrow picked out, as I'll be walking over to the Majestic Cafe, but I'm having trouble coming up with Friday's candidate. I don't know the area exceedingly well, but I have to assume there's a better option than Ruby Tuesday's somewhere within walking distance. Any advice would be appreciated.
