Travelling Sandwich Correspondents, Keep 'em coming!

My friend Kate, frequent Sandwich Night participant and current Ann Arbor resident, sent in the following sandwich report."Both photos are from a place in Toronto called Dangerous Dan's. I went when I was visiting Rhys over New Years. First, the atmosphere: it's very (very!) informal, order at the counter, pop in cans, and apparently they serve pitchers of beer but we didn't get one since I was about to drive back to Michigan. But the best part is that the seating consists of old car seats, both bucket and bench, seatbelts still attached, probably from Chrysler Minivans circa 1991. (I'd be lying if I didn't say that sitting in these seats totally took me back - I made out in more than one Chrysler minivan borrowed by high school boyfriends from their parents.)

Anyway, so we walk in, and it's 1:00 on a Tuesday afternoon or something, so the place is totally dead and a little weird and the bathroom is uber sketchy and I'm a little skeptical. Rhys orders the Coronary (ingredients, copied from the online menu: "2 8oz Patties, 4 Slices of Bacon, 2 Slices of Cheddar and a Fried Egg on top. Served w/ Fries and Gravy, Can of Pop and Mayo as a garnish for sure!"). I was bashful and got a Greek burger (one patty, feta, tomato, tsatsiki, maybe onion?) with onion rings. Oh. Man. Seriously, probably one of the best burgers I've ever had. The meat was super rich and flavorful and just, meaty, you know? The bun was toasted and all the ingredients were good quality. The one problem, and Rhys had it too, was that the outside of the burger was a bit charred for our taste. The onion rings were good too. Sorry we forgot to take a picture until we paused for breath halfway through and remembered we should take a picture for you! This way you get the nice section, though.
Rhys' friend Sean went another time and got the Collosal Colon Clogger Combo, aka Quadruple C (24oz burger served with a quarter pound of cheese, a quarter pound of bacon, and 2 fried eggs, with a large shake and a small poutine) (photo attached). They deliver, but probably not to Ann Arbor or Minneapolis. Pity."

Thanks Kate!
