I don't know what intrigues me so much about these Burger Reviews, but man, they're interesting.
 
I think I've had that A1 burger a couple years back, or at least some version of it. Didn't care for it. It tasted like a mediocre steak sandwich, which made me think "I should just go and get a steak sandwich, but for reals."
 
Keep at it! What are you thinking of for your next review subject?

I don't exactly have an idea for what comes next at the moment... maybe I'll drive around this weekend and see if something ridiculous is being sold. Any ideas?

Them Crooked Vultures = UGH.

Eh, I needed to add a song that was 5 minutes long... Them Crooked Vultures have plenty of those

As for new ideas for a future burger taste test, if you have a Hardees/Carl's Jr. near by, supposedly they're trying out a new Teriyaki Burger (with grilled Pineapple!) that looks/sounds pretty delish.

Noice. As much as I'm a purveyor of eating healthily and well, I can't help but love burgers. The Steakhouse did look good...so much so I just went out and got a sandwich to eat along with the video.

@GetEveryone:  
Interesting that you ate along with me, a new way of experiencing the Hamburger Review!

I don't even like A1, so anything that has it in it is a fail.

I'm not watching any videos or reading any review for this.  FUCK A1!!!  They took away my A1 Thick & Hearty Burger from Whataburger because of their stupid fucking deal with an inferior burger chain like Burger King. 
 
Fuck A1, and fuck Burger King!

@jakob187:  
can't they just make the thick & Hearty burger and have A1 sauce on the table(or at your house)?

@TurboMan: Nope.  Burger King signed some kind of exclusive deal with them, which meant that last year was the final time anyone could get an A1 Thick & Hearty Burger from Whataburger.  How big of a deal was this?  Well...here...just look at this:

Yes, there was actually a support group hotline to call for those having trouble coping with the loss.
