One hot and humid lunch hour a few weeks and a half ago.., I was strangely in the mood for a Bowling Alley Burger.
As its name conjures, a BAB can only be found and experienced at highly air conditioned indoor recreational buildings. This environment with a tempomatic, continually clashing sound of a urethane ball against ten perfectly arranged maple pins to me somehow elevates a mundane average burger to something edging above average. Wow! :)
I love people watching while eating. Especially people with beehive and Orphan Annie hair, and also Pineapple print shirts. I had the Hamburger Special - $6 with fries and a drink. It just may have been the best burger that an accumulation of Costco ingredients can create by hand.
A generously buttered and mayo'd toasted sesame seed bun. Fresh cool vegetables contrasting with the well done beef patty..
I thought a pretty good deal considering an establishment such as KMB to potentially monopolize food costs (think airport terminals). And all the cold ketchup I wanted!
Probably Hunt's, but Imho a better match to my almost must for bowling crinkle cut fries. These were also straight-from-the-fryer Styrofoam plate cinching hot.
And how was the all important burger this day?
*THUMP, rumble roll........*
Of course nothing less than a Strike! :)
