    And here I was going to pony up the membership fee and order one rare -- hold any mushrooms -- when I saw where they were going to donate the money. So much for that burger.

      I saw that earlier today.. All I thought was is the burger will be a rare seller, meat will be kept frozen for months on end... No thanks..

        This made front news in our local paper as well. Although the burger looks delish, I'll walk across the street to Copper Monkey anyday and save $119.25.

            Yeah...I'll take the bacon burger with blue cheese and a $4 pitcher.

              I am sorry but I would not pay that much for a great steak!

                Boy, that $10 donation sure does make it all worth it, doesn't it?

                    Oh my goodness, hamburgers are one of my favorite things, but I would rather go to the Copper Monkey and eat a gourmet sandwich anythime!

                        It would have to be a burger with a "happy ending", if you know what I mean - and I daresay my wife wouldn't allow me to have one of those!

                          How about $19 at the Seabrook Tavern & Grill in Topeka.

                          That is a 3 pound burger with a hugh side of fresh fries. http://www.seabrooktavern.com/

                            Gentlemen,
                            That is at least three of us that have the same thought..."the waitress comes w/ the burger?"

                                although, it always bugs Scorereader when people refer to themselves in the the third person.

                                  I find it, in this case, really hilarious

                                  Some of his reviews make me laugh out loud

                                      Better hope it isn't a place with an all male waitstaff.

                                        $125 for a burger? Ridiculous - no self respecting burger lover would pay that, though annoying, obnoxious hipsters might just do so to show off.

                                          I always get the CM cheeseburger and a salad and a cold Bud on our way to Sarasota. Mrs. Oneiron has her salad and then drives the rest of the way

                                                I would buy the $125.00 burger if I could wash it down with that $1,000 mint julep from the Kentucky Derby.
