Isn't the lettuce and tomato supposed to go on top of the burger?
 
That blue cheese burger looks luscious but it looks like the cheese may have been a slice and not chunks?

Pimiento cheese?

Yes. I had just posted it in my last trip report.

Putting lettuce underneath the burger keeps the juices from making the bun soggy.
 
But I don't put lettuce on my burgers so my buns have been soggy for years.

Woods Kitchen in Bloomingdale,GA. Half grassfed beef half mushrooms. They cooked this for the James Beard Foundation's sustainable burger contest. Incredible flavor.

Today I had lunch at Texlahoma BBQ, which is about half way between Guthrie and Edmond, OK. Cheeseburger with grilled red onion, pickles, mustard:

 
The meat was a little dry but I hit it with their spicy barbeque sauce and that helped a lot.

Been buying blue cheese slices for a long time in the local grocery stores.  Works much better than chunks!

Looks solid.  American cheese?  Plenty of bacon?

Cozy Inn, Salina, Kansas20170912_141147 by Kurt Friend, on Flickr
 
Kind of a fuzzy shot of the grill:
20170912_182418 by Kurt Friend, on Flickr
I got the No. 1 combo: six burgers, a bag of chips (no fries here), and a can of pop. These are small fried onion burgers (no cheese here either) and the only other toppings are pickle and they have bottles of mustard and ketchup on the counter. I was not impressed with the burgers as they are mostly bread, but the place is really cool and I definitely recommend it for the experience.

No cheese?  Why does Cozy Inn hate America?
 
How does a pinch of burger taste when the bun's excluded?

Oh they tasted fine, it's just that the patties are so thin. Put 3 or 4 on one bun and it would be pretty good! 
I'm not sure about the cheese thing.

BURGER WEEK
 
We had three really outstanding burgers this past week.
 
Last Sunday we stopped at Crafty Cow MKE for the Cheesehead Burger, which was featured on TV the previous Sunday on Discover Wisconsin. It is a half-pound Juicy-Lucy style burger topped with bacon, cheese curds, more cheese, and beer-cheese sauce. The Cheesehead is priced at $13.50.

This is an outstanding burger, but both Bobbi and I were even more blown away by the Honey Butter Fried Chicken Biscuit from Crafty Cow's shared kitchen with Hot Head Chicken. Boneless white-meat chicken breaded and deep fried, topped with honey butter and served in between a buttermilk biscuit. I want this again today. It was only $4.50.

 
On Thursday we made a trek to Kopp's Frozen Custard for their new-to-us flavor, Malibu Mudslide. This is Vanilla frozen custard with fudge, caramel and some coconut rum slipped in; along with Oreo cookie pieces and a dusting of cocoa powder. We liked our sample so much that our shared single scoop ended up as a half gallon to-go.

I had read about a new offering at Kopp's, the KRK Burger. This is a tribute to the founder, Karl Kopp, and is quite a mouthful.

I ordered our KRK Burger to share without pickles and ketchup, and it looked like this.

It was huge! Kopp's presented the burger in a large styro-carryout container, with some fries and onion rings included as garnish. This too was an outstanding burger. The spicy mayo came through towards the end and was really good. The KRK Burger was around $7.
 
Rounding out Burger Week was The Contingent's annual pilgrimage to Fred's Parkview in Burlington, Wisconsin, Home of the World's Best Burgers. We (and several others) were a bit down on Fred's following the past few visits, but today's burger was really exceptional. The Jalapeno Popper Burger had cream cheese, bacon, and candied jalapenos on a nicely toasted bun. The burger is about $5 for a quarter pound patty and $7 for a half-pounder.

This may have been our favorite burger of the week. The Jalapenos added a nice sharp flavor, but were not overwhelmingly hot.
 
I am ready to eat all three burgers again.

Was the cheese slice under the burger at least somewhat melted?  I'm generally not a fan of burgers where the cheese is treated as a "cold" topping and insulated from the meat; I like it to be melted into the top of the patty as part of the cooking process.

SC -
 
In that case I suggest that you enjoy your McDouble.
 
I didn't look beneath the patty, but when eating the KRK it was all one big semi-liquid sloppy eating experience. The fried onions under the patty may have melted the third slice. It was American "cheese" anyway, which is not exactly solid to begin with.

Kopp's is one of the more trek-worthy places I've been to. It was one of my stops when I was in the Milwaukee area a few years ago and I enjoyed their single cheeseburger very much, albeit without nearly so many toppings. They also make the best custard I've ever had.

phlmaestro,

A Kopp's single cheeseburger is our usual choice. A very good flat-top burger at a bargain price.

Kopp's frozen custard is the bane of my waistline. So many unique daily flavors keep drawing us back.

Jim,
I wavered on whether to get a single or double, but was happy that I went with the single. It was plenty to eat when followed by a turtle sundae, as it was that night. I went back a couple days later to just try some plain vanilla.

The meat-bun ratio of a single seems optimal. Free fried onions every time.
