The Burger: Burger Bar
Burger Bar’s, um, Burger Bar walks you through an easy three-step process to creating a big (1/2-pound), beautiful burger with anything and everything you could ever want on it. Literally, you can't screw this up. Also: a side of fried pickles is non-negotiable, as is a Malted Milk Ball Madness Milkshake.
