As my Let’s Meat Up!™ cohort slash default best friend mentioned previously, Burger Week doesn’t start until Saturday, at which point he and I are going to try and consume 30+ burgers in those seven days… so why the hell would we be eating burgers from other restaurants before the competition even starts?
Honestly, I look at it as (convinced myself of) trying to improve ones immune system. Say you’ve got a low tolerance to alcohol… if you start drinking more booze, more frequently, your tolerance will improve (and your loved ones will leave you). Now, replace the word alcohol with hamburger, and I believe my point has been made.
Impenetrable arguments for eating meat aside, the real reason I ate this burger was that I haven’t done groceries in two weeks, and Restaurant Copoli is on the way to my place (the life of an extremely lazy man).
The Copoli Burger has an extremely large diameter and circumference. Unfortunately, I left my protractor in my other pants so I can’t give you an exact measurement, but their menu insists it’s 8 inches (where have I heard that before? Am I right, ladies?).
Let’s just say if you were to put the burger in front of your face, the bun would cover your face entirely.. yes, even this guy’s face:
The burger itself is very thin, making it manageable to eat in one sitting, but easy enough to share with somebody if you’re on a date (and less inclined to pig out). Having it “all dressed” includes lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, and a signature spicy mayonnaise squirted on top. Additional options include cheese and bacon, which I happily accepted.
As is often the case, the burger was just right. The toppings and sauces mixed with the hamburger patty spice and the crunch of the thin, crispy bun made for quite the delicious combination.
SCORE: 8 Mad Cows out of 10.
