What does a $5 burger taste like?
With $5 in hand I marched my happy self on up to that counter and ordered a Double Homestyle burger. What makes this bad boy worth $5? Is it the pepper mustard? The lettuce? The single slice of pickle or single slice of onion? None of that. The extra $1 from the regular Homestyle burger is the second piece of dried out bland flavor hamburger patty.
I use to love the Homestyle burger. When I was a senior in high school there was a McDonalds across the street from my job and come lunch time I would order at least two every day. Heck, they were only $1 back then. Of course this was back when you squeezed the burger juices would flow out of it, like a good burger should do. I honestly miss those days.
While I just had to know what makes a burger worth $5 sadly I was very disappointed with the answer. It is so not worth $5 at all.
