Also for a great burger Ken recommends Jay's Jaybugers. :"I get a Double Jayburger with everything on it. They've been there since late forties and they make it perfect! The Double Jayburger has two patties on a toasted bun with cheese, a spoonful of chile, a thick slice of beefsteak tomato, three pickles, and chopped onions. The bun is spread with mustard that's been mixed with a bit of the pickle juice; and the whole thing is wrapped in paper and handed to you thirty seconds after it's off the grill. And I always get the homemade lemonade.
