Dottie's #3

Bur-Geek uses logic to break through the secret marketing plan:

So I know you've all driven by these "Lottery Deli's", and wondered if they are just fronts to get around the laws to have video lottery games. Well, yes they are. But they actually DO serve food and drinks, and surprisingly, have a decent burger. They also serve sandwiches and chicken strips, but I haven't found a blog for those, so this burger review will have to do for now.

The burger selection isn't huge. In fact, there's only two. A standard cheeseburger for $1.99 (including fries and a pickle) and a Bacon Cheeseburger for $2.99 (including fries and a pickle). You can order the dressings and toppings ala carte, mine has lettuce, ketchup, mustard, and mayo. Tomatos and Onions are also available.

The burger patty itself is approx. 1/3 pound. You get 2 strips of generic bacon, a small hunk of iceberg lettuce and the condiments are alternated above and below the patty. The result? Actually, a decent burger. The meat is a little overdone due to the way they cook it, but the bun is nice and chewy and the toppings are fresh and flavorful. The fries are standard Sheri's/Denny's fare, but for under 3 bucks, what do you want? Oh, and the drinks are free.

See, their nefarious goal is to get you in the door so that you'll throw a 20 into the machines as you wait for your food, and that $2.99 bacon cheeseburger just became a 23 dollar sandwich. But you are smarter (or luckier) than that, right?
