|Happy National Cheeseburger Day!|
Tune into the oldies station because these cheeseburgers are a throw-back to a Happy Days era. There was a time before Elvis' pelvis made him a king, going steady was a thing, and perky young ladies skated trays of food out to cars. Neato's rides a wave of nostalgia most of us are too young to remember, but it's easy to see how these sandwiches revolutionized the way Americans ate. Each burger is served on a delightfully squishy bun, its thin beef patty cooked to perfection with just a hint of pink in the center and layered atop a tart, crunchy pickle, and some raw onion; the entire thing is glued together by a perfect, orange slice of American cheese. That they're served with those addictive duck fat fries doesn't hurt. One bite of this baby and all is right with the world.

Critically acclaimed chefs in town may spend the work day re-inventing fine dining, but many of them are equally happy to head home or to their local dive bar to suck down a meal of straight-forward classics. No one brings together the worlds of modern cuisine and bar food favorites like Landon Schoenefeld. The Chef's Burger is served as it's stated on the menu, substitutions non grata. You're going to get this bad boy cooked the way the kitchen would like it: A bloody, medium rare, juicy, topped with the requisite yellow cheese oozing down the sides, and adorned with jalapeno pickles.
