Burger or salad?

I've been craving a burger.

Not just any burger.

A CHAR GRILL burger.

Char Grill is a local NC burger joint that used to only be in Raleigh, but now there are several other locations in Cary and Chapel Hill.  The one in Chapel Hill is my own personal hell, because it is SOOOO close to my work.  I drive by and smell the lovely scent of grilling....EVERY...SINGLE...DAY.

So today I finally went and ordered a Jr. Cheeseburger, no bun.

This is what I got:

A cheeseburger?  Or a salad?

Anyway, I was slightly amused by how much lettuce is "on" my burger.

Coincidentally, I know my taste buds have changed...because this was not as delicious as I imagined it would be.


  1. Kinda reassuring when we go to splurge and it isn't as good as we thought it would be... for me anyway. Sometimes it makes it not worth it.

  2. Yea so glad Clayton dont have a CharGrill... closest one used to be in GArner but Im not sure that one is still there anymore :)

  3. Christy, I Ended Up Throwing Almost All Of It Away!!

  4. What a great way to handle it - you tried to go for the craving, with some brakes on, and now you've tried it realized it wasn't even all that. I have to say that LOOKS pretty darn good though. :-)

  5. That looks really good! I am craving salad so bad, but can't have it for a couple of weeks :(

  6. Looks good! Sounds like a solid choice!

  7. perfect compromise! I do this all the time, meat and veg! that is the best...and cheese.....

  8. Ahhh I sometimes will go to "In-N-Out" here in California and get a "Protein Style cheeseburger" which means a cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce! Not as good as it used to be but still pretty tasty!
