It's a shame that the only time I intend to write about this place, they cheap out on the onion rings.
I love this place.
They have one of the best food court burgers in the downtown core here and back it up with some killer onion rings. Normally they fill what's left of the box you get the burger in with rings, and that's just fine by me. A healthy box of heart attack. Wonderfully delicious. Today however, they actually used the little mini-box thing to hold the rings. I got only about 2/3rds as many as normal. Hopefully that's not some new policy.
I've been in the habit of ordering the cheeseburger combo over the past few years because for some reason, it was on special while the regular hamburger combo wasn't. So if you asked for cheese, the whole thing was cheaper.
I think they sign has changed though and this may no longer be the case.
Perhaps next time I'm in the area, I'll try the hamburger combo. I expect it to be just as delicious, though not as cheesy.
They seem to be somehow associated with Pumpernickels, though they don't seem to have a website of their own.

Onion Rings can be a thing of beauty, but both their portion and prices can be wildly inconsistant. Theres a new place that opened around the corner from where I work called "California Burger" (a wildly original name considering it's in California…). They have some strange pricing, but they are good where it counts, and thats with the food. For example, a 1/4 burger, with all the trimmings, is only 99 cents. And this isn't a tiny little patty–this thing has a real, substantially sized beef patty, with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and 1000 island dressing. Its a steal at that price! On the other hand, you have the onion rings, which clock in at 3.99 for the small size. But what you don't realize is that the small size consists of an entire styrofoam dinner container full of onion rings, with probably 6 ounces of ranch dressing on the side to dip them in.
Did I also mention they have tacos, burritos, tamales, sandwhiches, and breakfast?
Holy crap, they are good…
