Okay, here’s one last thing from Hank’s (actually, there is one other thing, but I haven’t been back to try it so we won’t be getting to it any time soon). And, yes, it’s another hamburger . . . kind of. This one shows up on my list as a separate item from the one-pound burger above, so, despite the fact that they both kind of revolve around a hamburger, I decided to go ahead and try them both. So, the Special is, obviously, two quarter-pound patties, so it’s only half a pound (ONLY half a pound; only at Hank’s Hamburgers do you feel like you’re being very restrained by ordering the half pound burger). Anyway, this is basically the combo meal; you get the half-pound burger, an order of fries or tater tots and a drink. I got the fries; they were fine, nothing special. Of course, the burger was good. Well, you know. For only seven dollars, I suppose it’s a good deal, especially if you take some of the burger home with you. Still, I say go for the full insane experience and get the one-pounder. This one’s a solid hamburger combo, but the one-pounder is a frigging culinary masterpiece. Anyway, this was fine. Whatever. 2 ½ stars.
Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route. Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue à ne jamais dépasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable répétition d'une représentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.
