Outstanding burger at Cheers of Ramona recently! This one is not on their regular printed menu, but available upon request. Called the “Big Matt”, it’s modeled after the venerable Big Mac. Made with two quarter pound beef patties, two slices of American cheese, lettuce, pickle and thousand island dressing (special sauce), all on an excellent, bakery fresh brioche bun. Only $9, served with fries, rings or tots.
I have to say that I’m really a big fan of the quarter pound beef patty, even when stacked two high. There’s something about this thinner beef form that is more tasty than a chubby, fatty patty. It must be the grilled surface area to beef ratio. Thinner patties definitely have a better mouth feel with more flavor and texture.
If you’re like me and have the occasional urge for a Big Mac in your mouth, do yourself a favor and spend a couple dollars more at Cheers and try the “Big Matt”! You won’t be disappointed. You’ll actually taste the beef! And be warned, you might need to take a shower afterwards.
