Crunch Burger
$13



Can we all agree adding chips to a sandwich makes it infinitely better? Toss some Doritos into a ham sandwich and you'll be whistlin' dixie for days. The same is generally true for burgers, although the chip/burger combo becomes much more enjoyable in a BBQ cookout setting.

Despite the lack of charcoal pits and styrofoam cups; the chip infusion is a welcome alteration to the Christie's "Classic" burger as well.

The rippled Lay's give this number a much needed second texture. Take them away and you've got a bun and burger patty that are similarily chewy, and almost indistinguishable from each other texture-wise.

If only they could make that patty stick out a little more: perhaps then this burger may tweak glittering recollections of past chip-sandwich glory. Sadly, as is, there just aren't enough levels of diversity in this baby to make it truly exciting.

VERDICT: Fond childhood memories not quite being teased out by this unit.

I've been having trouble convincing some people here about the awesomness of adding chips to sandwiches.
