The Trouble with Burger a la Carte

Published by patrick honner on

I appreciate the simplicity and elegance of this build-your-own-burger a la carte menu, but it does create some real problems.

From an ordering perspective, it’s nice that all toppings are a uniform $1 in cost.  But is it fair?

A burger’s worth of applewood bacon is probably worth a buck; a fried egg is reasonably priced at a dollar.

But how many bread-and-butter pickles would I expect to get for a dollar?  Or pickled jalapenos?  Way more than I could put on a burger, I suspect!
