5 Star/Nicer Pics

I am going to try and commit to taking more appetizing photographs of the burgers I eat.  It can be tough in a dark restaurant, but heck, you deserve nothing less.

To give you an idea, I revisited 5 Star Burgers in Southglenn today for lunch.  Got my staple: green chile cheeseburger.  Pepperjack cheese, chopped green chilis, green chili mayo, on a brioche.  Easily the juiciest burger you'll find in south Denver, so AS SOON as it arrives at your table, throw the lettuce between the patty and bottom bun.  It'll act as a barrier, and you'll be glad you did it.  Today's burger was a tad under salted and closer to medium than medium rare, but they were training one of their friendly managers on the grill, so I forgave them!  Also learned an interesting fact.  They have a flat top griddle AND an open flame grill.  The patties see a bit of both surfaces before making it to your table.  Interesting!

Side note: don't overlook the value of a restaurant that trains it's management on the grill.  THIS IS KEY! To run a good burger joint, you have to indoctrinate your staff (managers included) with the elements of creating a great burger.

My buddy got the excellent lamb burger.  (That's the pic with the cucumbers in it).  Without further ado:
