Fried pickles + burgers = fate.

I was so right. The crispy snap of the lightly battered pickle with the sweet and tangy special sauce and all that melty cheese atop not one but two juicy patties made for one of the best burgers I ever had.

Fried pickles, I can’t quit you.

Fried pickle burgers, I love you.

Get in my mouth now.
