I shrugged at the news and looked over the offerings for what I might enjoy anyway. Prices range from $3.99 for the Harry’s Classic, with grilled onions, lettuce, and pickle, to $6.79 for the Double Wide, with twice the meat and cheese — all the other burgers have cheese, by the way. There is a turkey burger and the Fungus Among Us, a portobello cap with truffle oil, but otherwise the Herefords rule.

Since there were two minis per order, my friend and I decided to split a Pig Pile Burger and a M.O.A.B. ( Mother of All Burgers). The first was topped with BBQ pulled pork, a tasty addition that amped-up the flavor factor and put the stack of paper napkins on the table to good use. The other one added bacon and mushrooms to the cheese, with fried onion strings for crunch. Lots going on to good purpose.

If you have room for dessert, the Chocolate Crack ($2.69) is a treat, with pieces of saltines with dark chocolate on one side and caramel and the other. Don’t worry. Once you’ve stuffed yourself with the above indulgences, one more sin won’t matter.
