“[Spoken throughout in a corny British accent - should really be listened to]

The Thru-Hikers Guide to the PCT has this to say on the subject of the Jose Burger:

"The Jose Burger at the Paradise Cafe is a miracle. It's enough to inspire a following of cultish fanaticism to be rivaled only by politics, football, religion and, well, thru-hiking."

The subject of its divine origin is hotly contested, and has even led to a holy war on the lunar colony of Romular 3 -- the resulting devastation of which led to a ban on its manufacture across all quadrants of space. Which is a shame.

It goes on to say: "The Jose Burger at the Paradise Cafe on the Pines-to-Palms highway is the best burger on the trail. Swiss cheese, bacon, avacado, mushrooms, green chiles, tomato, onion, lettuce, and pickles. I've got a fuzzy, out-of-focus picture of one. Glory and I were in shock and awe when they came out. Quite literally I had to eat the burger in sections: work on the top part, then in the middle, then attack a corner of the bottom, etc."

While not quite as colossal as described, the burger is in fact reported to be sufficient to quell the appetite of the ravenous Bug-Blatter Beast of the Trail - who has been observed to have walked 42 miles in 48 hours and has been known to affect a ridiculous British accent in order to obtain one.”
