When I think about airport burgers, I don't think in terms of maximum deliciousness. Does anyone? Airports have a captive audience; they don't have to deliver delicious food, just something that will tide you over until you reach your next destination.
So imagine my surprise and delight when I ordered a medium rare cheeseburger at Burger Joint in San Francisco International Airport's food court in their International Terminal and a few minutes later received this, made to order, no less. Shocking, is it not? A juicy burger made with designer beef on a decent bun and properly melted cheese on top. I know the fries don't look bad, but they could have definitely used some improvement.
Although a burger like this can't make up for waiting hours sitting on plane on a tarmac waiting to take off, it does provide some small solace, nonetheless.
