In the interest of economy, I've been looking for Best Bets at fast food places. I've found a few things that you'll read about in coming weeks, but I thought everyone already knew about the Tops cheeseburger.

Well, it turned out that I was wrong. Let's work together to change that. After you read this, tell a friend, and tell that friend to tell a friend and so on. There are plenty of Tops around town, so we don't have to worry about running out.

The Tops burger starts with a thin patty, cooked on a hot grill, cheese melted on top, then tucked inside a buttered and toasted soft bun. You can get it dressed how you want it, but don't get too much on it. What makes it so good is the way the cheese melts between the burger and the bun, holding it all together. It's $3.10; a bargain at twice the price.

Everytime I go to Tops to get a cheeseburger, when I'm at the counter placing my order, it comes out sounding like "jumbo barbecue".
