Frugal Floozie Friday -- Great Plains Burger

After running some errands on a chaotic afternoon, Jeremy and I were in need of sustenance. We were hungry, and we were a bit frustrated after not accomplishing everything we'd hoped to. So we sought the comfort of a great burger with all the fixin's. We went to today's Frugal Floozie Friday feature - Great Plains Burger.

For $4.89 - perfectly within our mandatory $5 per person budget - you can get a single burger with either a beef, turkey or black bean patty. (Carnivores that we are, Jeremy and I both chose beef.) But then there are the freebies: mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, Thousand Island dressing, BBQ sauce, steak sauce, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, green olives, jalapenos, grilled onions, and sauteed mushrooms. For less than $5, you can have quite a feast!

I piled on the toppings, maximizing the value for my frugal meal. The patties are hand-formed, the vegetables are all fresh and crisp, and the burgers are made only when ordered rather than loitering under lamps for awhile. Messy, flavorful and abundant ... this was a great burger!

Great Plains Burger also serves milkshakes and fries that fall within our Frugal Floozie Friday limits. The fries are hot and crisp and perfectly cooked, and the shakes are unbelievably rich and creamy, featuring local favorite Guernsey ice cream.

So for a quick and hearty meal that doesn't cost a lot of money, Great Plains Burger is absolutely a fabulous choice!

Oh Mary! That is exactly what I would like for dinner tonight. And lots of fried onions! It is not often that I eat a burger, but now and then it is irresistible!! (We had great burgers in Denver at Park Burger) And Guernsey ice cream? From Guernsey cows or from the Island of Guernsey? Either way, I bet it's delicious too.

This burger makes me hungry!! I think the Frugal Floozie needs to come to Colorado Springs & find some awesome cheap eats here for me to indulge in :)
