    YOU DON'T LIKE COKE !? Seriously, do the the big boys, Coke and Pepsi, not allow businesses to offer both by tap? I always see either or, but never both. BTW, good luck on creating your own signature soda. As for this: Since I am a proper lady, I will refrain from making any off-color comments about that statement. ← HA, HA, HA!...now THAT WAS FUNNY!!! My side hurts after that one. I will serve Coke but it is something that I would concider my bottom shelf soda. I like the idea of having my own. It's just he type of person I am.

    Well, I dont like Coke...More a a Pepsi kind of guy...unless its with 151, then there is no sub for coke. The tricky part is the "Natural Flavors" That could be anything. But with say...Ice cream...its lets you know the combonations of things that were used and what could be used to get the same tast. Its also based on the Nutrition Facts lable on the product. Now it cant do like a package of cookies...but a 5gal tub of ice cream...that it can do because there is enough product there to get a good sample of a batch....but this is somthing I will use wisely....dont want to go around "tasting"

    Fries. Getting back to what tammylc was saying about fries. Fries are a animal all in its own. From all of the research that I have done...putting out a Fantastic Fresh French Fry...(sorry for all the F's) is a science that I am finally pinning down. A great french fry starts with getting a great raw product, storing, handling, cooking...all are important to the process. Soda I am also formulating my own soda. This process is almost done. I am just debating on bottle or tap. Also...I now have a computer program that can reverse engineer any sauce or product. The only downside is that when th

    WOW...That looks like alot of work. Sounds good...but looks like a lot of work. ← the big 9 has 2 patty's? and bacon? is that right? what kind of buns are you using? ← The big nine with bacon is something that is comming, but it does have two patty's. for now I am just using regular buns. All final decsions on the food choices and mixtures will not be made public...only tasted.

    Hey Tammy...thank for pointing that out for me. I should have made it clear that I was speaking of "burger places". I dont like badmouthing ofther establishments but IMHO...Zingermans is overpriced and overrated. There is no reason why a hotdog should cost $5.50. I know Bodegas in New York that would make Zingermans bread taste like Tastee bread...but thats just me. Red Hawk...well they fell off a long time ago. They are in a high rent district and as prices go up they made up the bottom line by decreasing portions and charging more for it. I pay close attention to these things. Now I have

    Sorry, diva, but the 'Skins stink this year. Almost as bad as the Iggles stink this year. What a good idea! International expansion! Except of course you should come to the Kansai area first--there's pretty much nothing in Hiroshima! Magus--I'm so happy that you're doing so well with your burger operation. I think it's good that you've started "small" (like those line-ups are small!), so you can really get a feel of what you need/want (and what your customers want/need) before opening your other location. You're getting used to the demand, the crowds, etc. etc. With all this experi

    Prices...$3.00 for a burger or cheese burger. $5:50 For a Big 9 Each patty is 1/4lb... Pricing is subject to change. Note: based on pre cooked patty weight. Not available in Hawaii or Alaska.

    Thank You! The next game is 11/17/07 at high noon. We will be out there early...about 8:30-9:00. We are saving the Let, tom and Mayo for the establishment. I think you were the young lady that orderd the kosher frankfurter as well. I would love to earn a spot on your food blog so I will keep working at it ← Yes, that was me. And this "young lady" turned 35 today, so she certainly appreciates the "young" comment. I didn't mean the comment about lettuce/tomato/mayo to be a criticism - i was happy to take what i could get via the drive-thru. I'm hoping to be back on the 17th with another

    Big? If you build it, they will come. Just make sure you have a lot of good staff on hand. A friend of mine is expanding her already very busy restaurant, but she has problems with staffing even now, so I am really worried about what will happen when her new place opens. ← I guess it feels like this thing is beginning to take on a life of its own... If I could send you a burger through the mail, I would

    Well...it has been a LOOOOONG DAY!! I was a rainy, windy, bone chilling, wet, messy event. BUT...I managed to take some pictures. This burger...is what I call ...the BIG 9 This was the first time that "I" have taken pictures of my own food...so please excuse me. This is the same BIG 9 just from different view ponts. I have more pics but I am kind of tired right now. Enjoy the pics...and I will be checking the "e" daily. Oh...one thing I found out...once you start flashing bacon...you better make sure you have enough to go around.

    Well...this weekend...the game is at 3:30pm... we will be ready to serve by 9:00-9:30. Serving "breakfast burgers" So I would say around 10:00-11:00 would be a great time. Also...I thought about the website and what I would be using it for...it wont fit my plan. My plan is to keep in touch with my customers and to get feedback from them so I am going to be starting a blog. This will give customers a way to give feedback. Things that we do great...and things that we can improve on.

    Sandy Sez:Up until this point, I figured I had no good reason to visit Ann Arbor, even though Midwestern college towns are by definition cool places Yeah...Ann Arbor is a cool place but just think...I am going to be working to take that "coolness" to a whole different level. Sandy Sez:After looking at that drool-worthy money-shot food porn photo of your Classic Double, I must now figure out an excuse to head through Ann Arbor on a fall Saturday. At least until you open permanent digs in Detroit. Well I am planning on emailing everyone to keep up to date. Detroit?.. Sandy Sez: Nice, classy c

    Thank You for your...all too kind complement. I was looking VERY rough and unshaved in that pic. I have found that it's hard trying to to offer too much and be everything to everyone. I am always in the mode of "what can I do next...what will take it to the next level. I always feel for No.9 to be the perfect 10...I have to keep busting hump...because my competiton will always be there breathing down my neck! Here is to my egullet family and staying true to the classic!!! You all have been so much help that I cant begin to thank you.
