The Fallacy of “Eating Healthy”

In a previous blog post (Gimme Information) we discussed the information age and how despite all the information available at our fingertips people in general seem to be more ignorant than ever. In the area of food, nutrition and health, consumers seem to be just as ignorant. We are awash in franchise food operations selling processed low quality, high fat meals even though there’s plenty of information out there warning about these dangers despite the fact  there are far better choices (like Gimme A Burger). That being said, we all like to indulge our cravings and eat some food we…

Gimme Local

It’s time to support local business! One thing that the outsider political campaigns of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump agreed on this year is that the system is rigged and that billion dollar corporations have too much power. They are able to support or buy politicians that will do their bidding. We at GAB think this is something most people probably feel is true to one extent or another. For small local businesses like ours that have to compete against these huge corporations it’s a troubling reality and a daunting task. This reality begs the question; is the day of…

Gimme Great Employees

At Gimme A Burger we take responsibility very seriously. Obviously we have a responsibility to our customers to serve high quality food and provide great, friendly service. What may not be so obvious is our responsibility to hire great employees and our responsibility to those employees. It is important for our customers to know how we feel about our employees and the extent to which our success as a business is dependent upon their performance. We believe in training/developing our employees and giving them an opportunity to grow with our company. We hire local residents who are focused on customer…

Gimme Truth In Advertising

Abe Lincoln famously said “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time” unfortunately it seems that in today’s world you can fool most of the people most of the time. From our politicians to mega corporate advertising it’s harder and harder to get the truth. Our politicians constantly distort the truth or plain lie and the media lets them get away with it because they are no longer objective reporters but cheerleaders and/or corporate entities with their own agenda which…

Gimme the Good Old Days

A customer recently told us that coming to our restaurant brought back his memories of the Good Old Days. Times when his family would drive miles for a special hamburger dinner. Life today is far removed from those days. We live in a world of convenience and dollar menus. There aren’t many “special” places left and most people don’t want to search out or drive to these places. Luckily for us, our customers or should we say, “Infusioneers,” search out special places like GAB. If you’re not familiar with what an Infusioneer is then read our previous blog posts. Becoming…

Choices Have Consequences

All of us as consumers make choices everyday about where to shop and what to buy. Many times these choices/decisions are based on emotions or false perceptions rather than facts. Our daily decisions determine the winners and losers in the marketplace, the quality of our lives and ultimately the kind of community we live in as well as the diversity of choices that are available. Sadly most folks don’t think about any of this or the consequences of their decisions. Particularly in the area of food it seems price and convenience outweigh some if not all of the more important…

Gimme Freedom from Oppression

Over the last several years and with increasing frequency lately we keep hearing that minorities are being oppressed and in particular by the police. Part of this narrative is that America is still, at heart, a racist country. Personally I find this hard to believe. Are there still racists among us, are there bad cops? Sure there are and there always will be but they represent what I consider to be the true minority among us and they come in all colors. The real oppression starts with our politicians and a liberally biased media that fails to ask tough questions…

Gimme Freedom from the Press

In previous blogs we’ve talked about how big corporations using their bought and paid for politicians (leading to crony capitalism) stifle true competition and control our lives. When it comes to the media many of us don’t realize that these entities are no longer idealistic independent truth seekers. The fact is six major corporations own most of the media, GE, News Corp., Disney, Viacom, Time Warner and CBS control all the major TV broadcasters, including sports, cable news and other properties. Much of the “news” we consume is generated from a handful of outlets and disseminated to all news outlets…

Gimme Information

One of our stated goals at Gimme A Burger is to provide our customers, our loyal Infusioneers, with information that can be helpful to them in all aspects of their lives, and it is our hope that the observations we have published in previous blog pages has inspired thought and hopefully will provoke action as well! We are sincerely interested in your feedback on the issues and theories that are raised and encourage you to communicate directly with us to make your opinions and feelings known.  We will incorporate some of the comments we receive in future blog posts and…

Gimme Education

Have you ever wondered why race relations, the state of inner cities and the economic welfare of our fellow citizens living in these communities are in such a sorry state and have not really improved over the course of our lifetimes? Certainly there are many entrenched institutions that have perpetuated the cycle including elected politicians and “Big Business” interests.  Most of the blame falls squarely on the ill-conceived government policies that have undermined traditional family structures and created an absolute crisis in with respect to the quality of education in our society. Below is an extremely revealing and interesting quote…

Gimme Change

Each election cycle those American Citizens that even bother to vote do so hoping to impact change for a fresh start. Unfortunately, regardless of whether the “liberal left” or the “conservative right” holds power, the perception among most of us is that nothing ever seems to change.  Government keeps getting bigger, the national debt keeps getting larger and most of us have become poorer while our nation has become more and more polarized. How has this occurred? Like the old saying goes, “follow the money” and you’ll have some of the answers. Our country is controlled by Wall Street, Billionaires…

Gimme A Healthy Burger

Americans eat nearly 50 billion burgers a year, which translates to three burgers a week for every single person in the United States. That’s a lot of beef. Despite its American popularity, we have the Germans to thank for our beloved hamburger. (Hamburg!) Since the invention of the hamburger there really hasn’t been any major improvements in the burger. In fact you could argue that instead of improvements, burger quality has actually been on a long slow decline. Most of the major fast food chains serve “100% Beef” burgers but unfortunately in order to save money they have been using…

Gimme Infusion

Let Gimme A Burger® take your palate for an international taste adventure. At GAB we put a twist into the traditional burger by infusing Premium Certified Angus Beef® or our Vegan mixes with various spices, herbs, marinades and ingredients. We call our unique burgers Infusion Burgers®. Our first Infusion Burgers® were adapted from the famous traditional Turkish recipes for mini-burgers called “kofte”. Our menu items contain a variety of Mediterranean inspired ingredients. One of these early burgers, the Wow Burger, won top honors at a local Burger Battle and with the growing popularity and demand we soon started to create…

What’s an Infusioneer

At Gimme A Burger we call our customers and team members, INFUSIONEERS.  Infusioneers are pioneers, explorers, risk takers and people who in general aren’t followers but trail blazers. This is the mindset of the people who discovered and built America. In today’s world it’s sad, but most folks can’t even find a place to eat without reviews from strangers and a GPS. Infusioneers aren’t any one specific personality type.  Infusoneers come from a variety of different backgrounds, but there are certain traits and attitudes they all have in common. So what is an Infusioneer? An Infusioneer is someone who understands…
