    Wonder if there is a two for one coupon on Groupon?

    Yep - Shake Shack and In-N-Out work for me too - or I'll splurge at Holstein's.

    Well, I clicked on it. Making a burger out of good Wagyu should be a crime. Why would you want to take that lovely, marbled texture and grind it all up?

    A $5,000 burger? Wow!
    Folks in my neck of the woods almost rioted when the McDouble went from $1.00 to $1.59.

    I'm still in major debt, struggling mightily to pay off that candy bar I purchased back in college.
    It was 100 Grand! :faint:

    Exactly, what is the point. You can just add or remove the amount of fat you would like in the burger. Marbling of the meat prior to the grinder makes zero difference

    I really hope you're a dad so you can embarrass you're kids in front of their friends with your terrible dad jokes!

    Agreed. This is also why I have a cow (rimshot) when places simply cook their burgers to medium in order to "keep them moist" etc. That's just lazy. A burger should incorporate different types of meat, with different fat contents, and be cooked to completion.

    Burgers should be cooked to the customers preference. I would send back a burger that was "cooked to completion" for being extremely overdone, which to me is also lazy.

    They're used to it!

    The humor is so dry in our house that we have to refill the humidifier at least thrice daily!
    (Four or five times on days I'm on VMB!) :D

    I've always wondered how people who are intelligent enough to make this kind of money (excepting pro athletes, drug dealers, lottery winners, etc. of course) can simultaneously be stupid enough to spend it this way. Just goes to show that intelligence is just one factor, and maybe a small factor, in getting filthy rich.

    It isn't the burger that is driving the bulk of the cost... it's the bottle of Petrus.

    well, you're really paying for the wine. the burger is thrown in as an incentive.

    and i like my burger, pink in the middle. if they won't cook it that way, i either leave or order something else

    Well, let's look at that. Assuming $5K going in, we have to ask ourselves the value of the transformed product in four to six hours when it's wafting in porcelain cooled aqua pura, enveloped in a malodorous zephyr and served with a lightly perfumed side of Quilted Northern Ultra Plush. What sort of depreciation are we looking at? I find it unlikely that it has retained the bulk of its' original retail price. :eek:

    :feedme:So if you order the $5,000 hamburger does the waitress still expect a 25% tip?
