A freshly unwrapped cheeseburger with the works. Note how its juices already have begun seeping into the bun. At first bite, they cascade from inside the charcoal-cooked crust. Note also the two kinds of cheese on top.

Here is an instance where Roadfood Radar simply doesn't work. We cannot imagine walking past the entrance to Le Parker Meridien and thinking, 'Hmmm, there's probably a really great lunch counter hamburger in this place.'
