like Poochies in Skokie. I just returned from a trip home and for my last meal had a cheddar burger from there. I took one for the plane too. Is there anything like this burger in the LA area? For those not familiar, Poochies is a hot dog stand+ and their burgers are 1/4 pound of beef that cook up juicy and not industrial tasting at all. Sometimes, at dives, the burgers should not be eaten rarer than well done, but the meat here is really good. The major thing is the Merkts cheddar (spreadable cheese). Add some ketchup, mustard, grilled onion and pickles and humma humma.
