Burger Queen

0716_latifa_fatburger-1Don't be surprised if you see Queen Latifah at FatBurger -- working!

The raptress is getting into the fast food biz by opening a FatBurger franchise in Miami. Would you like fries with that?!

Latifah is starring in "Hairspray," but it looks like what she'll really need is a hairnet!

Sounded strange to me, too, until I followed the Fatburger link in the article to their home page. Turns out the name comes from the thickness of the (actually quite lean) meat used, in contrast to the flat patties popular at the time (started up in the early 50s?), more like what people would make themselves at home. No frozen prefabs, all made when ordered. Also have grilled chicken and turkeyburgers and even Boca veggie (non-meat) burgers, plus fries done in veggie oil and (gasp!) real onions cut up to do onion rings on the spot. I'm vegetarian and (gasp!) could even eat there... Some study in their area indicated that they were the leanest cow-meat burger around those parts.

So if you gotta have a burger, turns out the Fatburger is a good choice healthwise. You all can stop laughing at the Queen now...
