Aww man, I was just en PHX and missed out on this place!           

Definitely on my to-go list next time I'm around. Wonder if the nurses are to-go as well?

I'm all for it, apart from the lard. Chips fried in lard taste crap compared to regular oil, same with the buns - decent full cream butter not lard.

If it weren't for the fact that I don't like cheese, I'd ask for a double. I like their style. Rather than telling each person to be health conscious, they tell them to live to the fullest, even if it meant an 8K meal. Although I got to admit, that is just death waiting to happen...  Wow!

Looks delicious and the service looks to be excellent!

He should open up one in Times Square in New York and Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.
I bet the European tourist would line up wanting to eat at this establishment!

I'm hungry for a nice burger and fries right now. Sounds like breakfast at the Truck Stop is in order. It will have to do until I get to PHX.

Believe me if you live (and eat) in Panama you have eaten lots of lard (manteca).

It is shortening you cook with it, you don't cook it by its self.

The burger look awesome! 

By the way, did anyone notice that they serve Coke from glas bottles? Pretty unusual in the USA and Germany nowadays.

No, you're not. I think this thread is the perfect example of Zentraedi's culture shock:

Culture Shock In Your Own Country (by Aaron747 Jul 5 2010 in Non Aviation)

Quoting Zentraedi (Reply 21):
The one thing that gets me everytime I go back to the States is the constant clamor for quantity over quality. You see it everywhere.

It especially gets me when Americans hold their food on a pedestal. Coming back to the States, I get asked how I like "real food" as opposed the "cat food" over there. The food I eat in Japan is usually of a higher standard than the bulk, over-processed, feces ridden, ammonia-washed "real food" in the States.

Another thing that bothers me is how I come across grown, adult men in the US who says things like "I don't eat vegetables. Well, maybe potatoes, but nothing green." Not only that, but they say it with pride!

WTF?!? I'm thinking, "Huh, are you 5 years old or something?"

Then there's tofu. There are lots of great dishes with tofu. In fact, lots of great dishes that contain BOTH tofu and meat. However, if I mention "tofu" outside of any metro area, I get dirty and almost hostile looks from people. WTF?

McD's used to use lard to fry their fries way back before they switched to other oils, and yes, I think many of us who remember mc'd fries and others can tell a difference. Gawd I remember burgers with the buns oiled and grilled like that. Takes me way back. It seems every non chain b urger place serves a 'fancy' type of bun that is not grilled. but I remember those, how it would crunch when you'd bite it and the juicy burger.

You dont HAVE to have a 4 pattie burger, be in moderation and have a triple   well, I ll just have a double. Do they serve real strawberry shakes? mmmm

The fries have to be good if they're cooked in lard ... ever since they've come out with that trans fat free cooking oil fries have just never been the same
