    kcdelong's Note:

    This is the ultimate cheeseburger. The guys would order when they were REAL HUNGRY! It is also from the "Sandhills Lunchbox" Cafe. I waitressed there when I was growing up. We were tired of saying Double meat, double cheese bacon, jalpeno, cheeseburger and the guys couldn't remember it anyway so it was labeled the thing. It is very good.

      The Thing is now my thing! Great Burger. Didn't have Dill pickles but had hot pickled mixed peppers and I added mushrooms. Now don't laugh but I wanted to cut back fat & calories a bit so I cut the bacon to 2 slices and the cheese to 2 slices- Hey every little bit helps and I sure didn't want to spoil the burger. Super Burger Thanks kcdelong made my Saturday night
