Burgers and Things is a cool little spot located under the Pali Highway.  Loved the comic book themed restaurant and kids working there.  We arrived on a Saturday after the restaurant was featured on a local television morning news.  Parking in back was full and tight so we parked down the street and walked over.  Place was packed with customers seated and standing.  We stood a bit to observe the flow and figure out how to order.  Then we saw the counter that says "Start Here".  Nobody was at the counter so we looked at the menu until a young guy welcomed us and told us about the Burgers.  The Doe A Deer Burger has won a National Burger Competition he said and they beat Michelin Star Chefs.  I was down for a Burger made of Venison but could not get over the $17 price tag.  Wow I thought this better be good.  My Wife ordered the Wagyu Say Burger $13.  Ordered the Kimchi-Li Fries which also are National Award Winning and the Garlic Truffle Fries but their fryer was down so no fries on this day.  Ordered the Triforce Potato Salad $5 instead of the fries.  As we waited tables cleared so we were able to sit down.  We served ourself drinks from the fountain.  For $2 the drinks are unlimited so as we waited we consumed far too much soda.  The Potato Salad arrived and I was taken back on the presentation.  A small scoop on a large paper tray.  The Potatoes were a bit sweet and pretty basic.  $5 I thought was a bit much for this side dish.  Our name was soon called and the Burgers were delivered to our table.  I looked at my Doe A Deer Burger and again thought about the $17 price.  My Wife dug into her Wagyu Say Burger and liked the flavors.  My Daughter also said it was good.  They only questioned the $13 price and then said they would not pay $13 for the Burger again.  My Venison Burger topped with Pineapple and a Bourguignon Sauce looked good on the plate.  OK this is it.  A National Award Winning Burger that cost me $17.  I took about three small bites and then offered the Burger to my Wife.  She took a bite and shrugged her shoulders saying "ok".  Cannot say that this was anywhere near my favorite Burger.  It was not.  I could by 6 In N' Out Burgers for the $17 price and be much more satisfied.  I took half of the Burger home and never finished it.  Seventeen bucks down the drain.
