Pet Peeve

I tried a new burger place today, Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  The burger was a "nostalgia burger"--in that it reminded me of the burgers an old country store by Lake McQueeney used to serve:  griddled cooked, with a huge chunk of melted American Cheese on it, tomatos, lettuce, pickles and onions with mustard.....lots of mustard.

However, I don't think I'll go back.  Why?  Because I hate places that over serve food.  I ordered a regular fries and it was enough to serve three sensible people. I had to throw away most of it, and I wasn't the only one. Over and over again I saw people toss way too much in the trash.

Why do restaurants do that?  I'm sure their cost is minimal, just a few cents, if that per order, and "LOOK how MUCH you get for your MONEY".  Still, it's waste and with the obesity situation in our nation, and hungry people everywhere, it is immoral.  Why not offer "unlimited fries", serve a small, reasonable portion, and let people go back and pick up more if it's not enough?


  1. Totally with you about massive fries, Padre
    P Terry's in Austin cooks theirs in canola but serves only one size -- super!
    Hope they get down San Antone way -- great beef.
    Ever tried your burger with only grilled onions and grilled pickles?
