Season 2 Episode 9

Ch**seburger in Paradise feat. Mom

In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: Michael's Mom is back and joins him this week to eat at the historic Ch**seburger in Paradise restaurant in Honolulu, Hawaii!

○ Mom brought leis because being festive is important

○ Hawaiian Santa Claus!

○ These Eat Deets get spicy as Jimmy Buffett wasn't necessarily fond of the founders stealing the name from one of his most famous songs

○ Some people have had their ashes spread at this restaurant with an ocean view

○ A Yelper falls in love with their server in Yelp from Strangers

Part 2: Vintage decor meets views of the ocean, the beach, and garbage trucks

○ Hawaii is the deepest South

○ A discussion on the word "y'all"

○ A server flat out refuses to bus a plate off our table: What's Going on With That?

○ But also, it's Way Too Much

○ The burgers aren't bad, but they're nothing to write home about

○ No desserts??

○ The floodgates on fast food and fast casual restaurants have been opened!
