You can choose between a single burger (1/2 lb) or a Double Burger (1 lb.) and when it comes to toppings, it comes with the works! The topping options include lettuce, tomato, pickle, jalapenos, or mushrooms. For the dairy, your choice includes American cheese, swiss cheese, hot pepper cheese, blue cheese or cheddar cheese and the option of BBQ, Steak sauce or Hot sauce.
