The Race for Hope and a trip to Cheeburger Cheeburger
Yesterday was the Race for Hope in Washington D.C. (show your support, it’s a good cause) It was a rain-soaked charity event that left me and my friends looking like drowned rats. As post race grub is concerned, what better choice is there than a big, juicy burger? We can’t forget that it’s National Hamburger Month.
An escape from the dry bagels, power bars and trail mix that litters the charity race grounds. A visit to Cheeburger Cheeburger was just the thing I was looking for. So, what was the order today? A Semi-Serious 1/3 pound Cheeseburger with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and Thousand Island dressing…an order of Frings (Fries/Onion Rings)…a lemonade…and for dessert I perused through the 378,000 possible combinations of shakes and decided on a Rocky Road shake in a to-go cup. It’s about 8 hours later as I write this, and I’m still recovering. When I put the meal into writing, I applaud my gluttony. What can I say? This meal really hit the spot.
- The Semi-Serious 1/3 pound Cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato, onion, American cheese and Thousand Island Salad Dressing. Cooked medium-well. Delicious. Price: $6.29 GrubGrade: 9.25/10
- Frings (also known as the “Best of Both” basket of fries and onion rings), potatoes cut fresh daily and some great tasty onion rings dipped in a secret batter. Big enough to share. Price: $4.29 GrubGrade: 8.75/10.
- Lemonade served in a jar. Price: $1.89
- Rocky Road shake to go. Once you’re done, you’re not really done. Most of the peanuts don’t make the journey through the straw so you’ll have a bunch waiting at the end. It was the first time I’ve had a Rocky Road shake and I will definitely get it again. Price: $3.29 GrubGrade: 9.00/10
I hope you’ve enjoyed the pictures of grub as much as I enjoyed devouring it all. Like I said before, it was the perfect lunch after being rained on for the entire morning and experiencing motion sickness for the first time from the usually not-so-shaky metro rail. Be sure to check back often to GrubGrade this month for more National Hamburger Month appreciation. It’s a good month to grub on some great burgers.
