Great article that begins with a quote by Charles Kuralt.

Check out the link to the book "I'll Have What They're Having" am considering ordering. Anyone read it?

    So how do we resolve the issue as to whose "burger" was actually first? If it can be verified then the Wisconsin version has to be first - but how does one do that? Lassen's grandson says he has it verified in documents ( which he wouldn't produce on the "History on a Bun" show) but it would be nice to really pinpoint the first one. This may be as tough as finding the best burger.

      Good link and subject, Lone Star. I wish we could really find out the origin of the hamburger. It is just about the perfect food; a cheeseburger with all the veggies represents all 4 food groups. (To Hades with the "Food Pyramid" !!! )

      Unfortunately, I believe all we're left with is lore.

      This is one of the few times that I will publicly state that I don't agree with the "Texas version" of the argument.
