Florida Restaurant Offers $100 Burger

The Old Homestead Steakhouse in Boca Raton, Florida has the answer to those 99-cent value burgers offered by fast food chains across the nation: a $100 burger consisting of American prime beef, Japanese Kobe and Argentine cattle. The bill for one burger – tax and 18% gratuity included – comes to about $125. What that doesn't include is the $40,000 membership or $3600 monthly dues to the Boca Raton Resort and Club, the eatery's ritzy home base. (Photo: Associated Press)

The thing is.. that burger looks incrediblt unappetizing! What a waste of good beef!! And I'm betting half of those old geezers are ordering theirs well done too!

You said it Lea... I had one incredible burger out in Vegas (at Hamburger Mary's) and it looked wayyyy better than that one. Had another really good burger -- maybe a little too far past the requested rare -- at the Freakin Frog but their beer selection and fries more than made up for it.
