“What’s the big deal? Can’t you just make a hamburger at home and spread peanut butter on the bun?” asks your unenlightened friend. “No! It’s not the same,” you insist, slamming your fist on the table for emphasis. While we can’t say for sure whether the best burger at Darrell’s is the peanut butter burger specifically, we’re pretty confident that’s the case. After all, it’s what Darrell’s is known for: Beef, bacon, lettuce and tomato all topped off with crunchy PB. It goes against the laws of nature; there’s no scientific explanation for why this should taste good. But it does.
