MacDaddy Burger at Pig Pen Delicacy

MacDaddy Burger at Pig Pen Delicacy
Trade Food Hall, Irvine

Showstopper bun of oozy, yet miraculously firm, deep-fried mac ’n’ cheese. This runaway hit went up as a chalkboard special and never came down. A beef patty topped with cheddar cheese, candied bacon, and barbecue sauce, the burger’s modest proportions suit its richness. $11.95

Everything you can imagine plus two patties. Basics—Angus beef patty, tomato, grilled onion, mixed greens, pickles, cheese, and “1001” dressing. Then teriyaki-glazed onions, grilled pineapple, portobellos, fried egg, Applewood-smoked bacon, avocado, roasted red peppers, pastrami, cherry peppers, onion ring—and another patty. $18

At The Catch in Anaheim

Equivalent to 40 quarter-pounders. This old-school stack of house-ground chuck, aged cheddar, iceberg lettuce, ripe tomato, sliced red onion, dill pickles, and creamy remoulade on a 14-inch bun serves up to 20, and the kitchen sends out 40 to 60 a month. $76.49

Sounds ludicrous, until you try it. Black Canyon Angus beef with Skippy peanut butt er, Smucker’s strawberry jelly, and thick-cut bacon; we sub in the superior brioche bun for the menu’s honey-wheat. The burger was founder Scott Slater’s favorite. Eight years later, it’s one of the chain’s best-sellers. $12.49
