Honorable Mention #22: Fatburger
Currently, naming “Fatburger” the restaurant sounds like one heck of a burger-wise statement, and there’s a lot of responsibility to live up to the expectations and don’t want to earn the derision and contempt of your future customer base. But, uh, Good news! They’re probably trying to pull that off. The Fatburger appears in all sorts of sizes and reaches all sides of the burger continuum, while the XXXL is precisely the sort of over-the-top decadence that contributed to the fall of Rome.
The small version is way too small. The medium version is just fine: the regular toppings are jam-packed between two toasted buns (lettuce, tomato, onion, relish, mustard, and mayo) atop a patty that is wide enough to prevent being lost in the mix. It’s a fat burger, if you like, it’s the best for you.
