"You know this burger's in trouble when it takes more than 20 syllables just to identify it." says Eat This, Not That @ Yahoo Health. "If you think the name’s a mouthful, just wait until the burger hits the table. You’ll be face to face with two-and-a-half day’s worth of fat — a full third of which is saturated. To do that much damage with roasted sirloin, you’d have to eat about eight 6-ounce steaks. It’s nearly three days’ worth of saturated fat."

When I was young and my family lived in Dallas, we ate at the original Chili's location. It was just this funky wood building and we loved their "Old timer" with cheese. It was normal-sized (for the time, I suppose. Now, it would probably be considered a "junior" burger) and topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, mustard and 1 slice of cheese. It was simple and it was wonderful and didn't put you in a fat and carb coma for the rest of the day.
