After a workout, beef protein is what I want, and so I stop at Five Guys, McDonalds, and sometimes…Mickey's.
After a recent workout, I planned to stop by Mickey's to get a Big Baby or a Big Mickey, both netting out to about a quarter pound of beef. However, Mickey's is running a promotion that caught my eye: one-third pound hamburger for $2.
I had to go for that.
It turned out to be a big value, tasty enough, but messy as hell: there's a lot of everything on one "with everything." As you can see in the cartoonish picture above, the burger sits on top of tomato, lettuce, grilled onion. The problem with building a burger like this is that when you grasp the sandwich, everything tends to squish out. And because there's a lot of moisture in this sandwich (from grease, tomato, lettuce, onion and mayo), the bun falls apart like newsprint in a downpour.
You're not getting grass-fed beef or heirloom tomatoes with the third-pounder, but you're getting a lot of sandwich for two bucks.
