      Tastes just like Marvins!!! yummy yummy, These are also good if made on the grill. I go a little lighter on the salt. Just my preference

      This was good. The buns were incredible. I love Lawry's garlic salt. Hadn't tried before this recipe and threw out my other garlic salt after I had. We didn't have enough ranch to dip our burgers in and I think that would have been great, though it wasn't bad this way either. Will probably make again.
