Here's the latest report from West Coast Burgers:

Went back last night and ordered "The Mammoth" combo (with fries and medium drink).

Had the triple patty with cheese and pastrami - except I substituted the ham for 6 pieces of bacon (two slices between each patty).

Their portion of fries are generous, however, their burger is (by far) the BIGGEST I've ever had and (quite possibly) the best I've ever tasted (In-and-Out is still one of my all-time favorites).

I'm sorry to report, that I was only able to eat a little less than half, before I doggie-bagged that bad boy.

On a positive note - I was able to consume most of the fries. :thumbsup:

Place is great!
:cheers:

Hah.. I'm hardly a burger expert (I know what I like) ... It was very tasty - BIG, juicy and very messy. We had to order it to go because Huck snuck out the door and decided he wasn't going anywhere but in the Suburban. I ordered the bacon avocado burger (no cheese or 1000 island sauce) with grilled onions. They have a large menu (including breakfast). Definitely better than Five Guys or The Habit. We were the only ones in the restaurant while we were there (1 car came to the drive-thru). The 2 people working there were EXTREMELY nice. My only suggestions would be: the avocado was fresh but could have used an extra day or 2 to ripen (too hard) and needed more napkins (real juicy).

oh yeah.. we mentioned Facebook and got 15% off :cheers:

Messy is OK...it sounds like a try. Knowlwood burgers are pretty good...also messy.

Big does not equal good which I don't understand people's fascinations with these ridiculous hamburgers of gargantuan build.

Plus the buns are never ever big enough to contain everything which makes trying to actually eat it as a god damn hamburger a fruitless effort.

My mom's homemade burger made in the old iron black skillet is best.
With toasted wheat bread, mayo, lettuce and tomato.
The way grease would make the bread all wet and soppy...
Simply the best!

Coney Island 3 Pound Hound (Hot Dog obviously) that I ate at the Catch before an Angels Game.

I'm no buster so I ate the whole thing, by myself. It was alright.

Easier to unhook bras that way instead of having big ole meat hooves.

I don't think those are mine, they might be but I think I was taking the picture.
