"When I was little my Mom took us to A&W and this was my favorite burger. The sauce seems to have changed so this is the newer version. Ok the computer took the first one back so instead of salad dressing and barbecue sauce put 1 tablespoon Thousand Island dressing; this is how I remember it in the early '60s. There wasn't as much barbecue sauce as there is now."

I haven't had a teen burger probably since...I was a teen. But I do remember liking them, though not really remembering what they tasted like. It doesn't matter anyway, because this "everything" burger is delicious. We tried making them with veggie burgers, and it worked out very well. We also used Irish cheddar (which is what we had in the frig), and mayonnaise (not salad dressing). These are some of the top burgers we have made, so I can see how this got into someone's best of the year collection. Definitely recommended.

I don't remember the last time I had one of these at A&W. But this was really good and we really enjoyed it. Thanks Dee, for sharing. Made for Best of 2014 tag.
