This burger is soooooo good. Top with grilled pineapple, Swiss cheese, spinach, onion rings, thinly sliced tomato, and a drizzle of pineapple teriyaki sauce. Serve with fresh-cut fries, a salad, and, of course, strawberry lemonade.

What a burger - loved the combo of meats in the burger. I could not get enough of the mayo sauce on top. I plan on adding that to other sandwiches too! The toppings make for a pretty impressive presentation.
