Oh, crunchy, fatty bliss that is Cassidy’s cheeseburger: a perfectly toasted bun, patty as thick as your thumb, with large pickles and a smear of secret sauce adding necessary tartness, the cheddar cheese melting so that it looks like plastic but tastes almost silken. They do put a bit too much lettuce, but the resultant crunch reminds you why lettuce is a part of the hamburger equation in the first place—every bite unleashes freshness, adds texture, becomes as refreshing as a wet napkin on the face during a muggy day. There’s no need for fries—a massive bag of Have’A Chip, spiked with their tangy house barbecue sauce, will do.
