Casino Burgers

I got a call from a friend, CV. I hadn't heard from him
in a few weeks since we've both been traveling a lot
throughout the summer.

As it turns out, we're both going to end up in Alpine 
for about a week. He'll be conducting training for a
large group of 9th graders from many different parts of
Texas. I--on the other hand--will be following many
of the students around for a documentary project I'm
trying to complete by Mid-September.

We decided to go for burgers. One of the best places
in Austin--as TONS of people know--is Casino El Camino.

I believe there's an art to getting a good burger there, though.

You can't go after 7, when there's a huge rush.
By then, the grill seems to accumulate a lot of residue,
which ends up on the burger. That's my theory, at least.
The impact is this, however: The burger (at that hour)
tends to get over cooked. And it ends up crispy, but krispy
in a bad way.

So, going at 5 or 5:30 is perfect.
