I’m already dreaming back to when my perfume was of sunscreen and salt water, my main source of hydration was from fresh coconut water, and when I spent more time in the sea than on land (how could you not when the ocean is a consistent 88 degrees?).

These burgers. THESE burgers are fan-tastic.

Just the right amount of flavor, all throughout.

Bacon Blue Cheese Burger_LYK7

Topped, but not dominated by, blue cheese and crispy bacon, you will be well on your way to a fulfilling food-coma stupor. But it’ll be a heavenly one.
