Fosters Freeze - The Big Boss Burger ($6) Rating: 6

Mark Lim - I was mezmorized by the dazzling colors and the cold creamy desserts from a Dairy Queen commercial and ran like I never ran before to my car to find one. I felt like Dog The Bounty Hunter but instead of hunting down criminals I was hunting down the taste of an awesome burger.

oh so fat, mark lim, foster freezes

I got a hot tip from my roommate of where to find one so I rushed over there. When I reached my destination I was devestated to find out it wasn't a Dairy Queen but a Fosters Freeze! I quickly used my GPS to find another but when I got there it was shut down! It was not meant to be.

I was defeated. I decided to go back to the Fosters Freeze and see if they could lift my spirits. I decided on getting "The Big Boss" burger
big boss, oh so fat

The Big Boss comes with bacon, onion rings, cheese, pickles, lettus, and a big piece of meat. I was impressed by its beauty.

Sadly, the burger was not as flavorful as it looked. It had great texture and crunch from the bacon and onion rings but the burger itself was pretty bland. I was also disappointed that it cost so much.

It was a gorgeous burger but it tasted like one of those ones that they shellac and put on display.

Rating: 6 out of 10
It was kind of sad seeing a family owned franchise like this Fosters Freeze hurting so bad because of the economy. It was the middle of the lunch rush and I was the only person in the place. I think the food would have been much better if the place was busy. It felt dead inside and food wasn't as fresh as it would have been if they had been making burgers all day. I'll drive past it next time to see if it's busier and maybe I'll stop in again and try something new :)

Be Fat! Be Happy!

I like that you will give the restaurant another try....when it is less busy you either get better food (because it is not rushed) or not as good (because it is not fresh).

The onion rings looked good though and the burger less "mashed together".

He thought that by choosing a burger type from the well presented menu would be the end of it, Food Truck Catering
