This hotter-than-hell­ burger is made of Angus beef mixed with jalapeños and other incendiary ingredients, then topped with melted pepperjack cheese.

If this doesn't scare you, set your tastebuds on fire by adding habaneros, ghost pepper cheese, or more jalapeños from the add-on list below. Warning: no givebacks, whining or refunds!
USD 13.95

Busy, busy place, make reservations. The tater tots with parm are absolutely fantastic, definitely recommend. Careful with the juicy lucy, you may get hot, greasy cheese all over your shirt. I'd go back again.
