        Here is the description I have. The "Hawkins" burger consist of three, one-pound ground beef patties. Each pattie has different toppings. Pattie one has 2 Italian sausages with hot chili sauce and cheese. Pattie two has 2 eggs over easy with chili sauce. Pattie three has 1/2 pound of the best pastrami in town with chili sauce. This all comes on a giant bun with divider pieces of bread in between the patties.

          Does it come with an Alka-Seltzer chaser?

            BB:
            I'm flattered that my myocardial infarction-inducing word's eye picture of the legendary Hawkins Burger from a post back in 2005 is still shockin' ya. How much they chargin' for tha monsta at the Imperial Gardens-adjacent location? $9.00?

              I have to get one, even if it is for 6 or 7 big bites. I should change me name until i do, I"M NOT WORTHY!

        2. Ok, there should be some sort of law against yummy, juicy huge burgers like that. I think it would kill me.

          1. I'm really glad you found that pic because I was about to head out the door for some lunch and now I know that I'm not nearly hungry enough for Hawkins at the moment. That thing is gi-normous.

              You wimp. Any hardened over-indulger can see that there's a lot of excess air in the layers. If you squashed the whole thing down it would only be the size of...oh, I don't know...6 regular burgers?

                1. re: hrhboo

                  You know, if this thing is $13 and has the approximate feeding capacity of 6 burgers, this might go down as one of the greatest deals in town as well.
