Mom's Fabulous Bacon Cheeseburger
Why I Love This Recipe
Yum, tonight I’m going to Joe’s Pizza! It is the home of the delicious bacon cheeseburger in Canton. My family and I go to this restaurant every Saturday night. Have you ever been there? Well, if you haven’t you should go there with your family.
Joe’s Pizza is located in a remote, quiet, and community friendly neighborhood. The staff is always welcoming and remembers your favorite orders. The restaurant is small, cozy and atmosphere makes you feel like if you are at home. The only difference is that it is stress free because I don’t have to clean up afterwards. I get to spend quality time with my family. When I’m at Joe’s my family get to talk about school, work, or just general things about the day. I also get the opportunity to eat my favorite meal, bacon cheeseburger. My burger needs to be cooked well done and the bacon needs to be extra crispy. I love to add special spices; such as: black pepper, crushed red pepper and parmesan cheese. These spices add to the burger a bigger kick to the flavor
Every time, I go to Joe’s Pizza Restaurant it reminds me of how lucky I am to have my parents. It means a lot to me when we are together. My father works at least 70 hours a week at the Hartford Police Department. We have a tradition while we are waiting for our food; we play fun guessing games. I like to have my parents guess the number I am thinking of and my mom likes for us to guess a food item. When the food comes it’s a whole different story. It’s time for us to get our eating on! I put my special spices (black peppers and crushed red peppers) to spice my burger up. When I take a bite of it the juices fall into my mouth. I just want to eat the whole thing in one gulp, but I don’t rush eating it quickly so I can savor the moment.
I have a special memory of this restaurant that I will never forget. Three years ago, my parents decided to take me to Joe’s for my birthday. When we were done eating our usual meal, I had a feeling my parents were going to surprise me by having the employees sing to me happy birthday. I noticed the employees walking by and singing happy birthday, but then I realized that they did not stop at our table. Instead, they went two tables from us and sang happy birthday to someone else. My parents noticed my facial expression and we were all laughing so hard that we could not control ourselves. A few minutes later the employees came to our table and sang happy birthday to me. To this day, I always laugh when I see the employees sing for someone else’s birthday.
So what are you waiting for? Head to Joe’s now. You may not like their burgers but they have a variety of food and desert waiting for you. Why not create your own memories at Joe’s. Enjoy.
