The Bowling Alley Burger

We seem to have an affinity for truck-stop fried chicken, convenience-store hot dogs and bowling alley burgers. On a recent late-night trip to Palace Lanes on Bellaire, we fancied a cheeseburger from the "snack bar." It's the same thing with airport bars - we're attracted to these places like a moth to a light bulb.

We were eating a cheeseburger with a side of Frito pie when it occurred to us to pour the puddle of velvety cheese- and chili-covered corn chips onto our burger like a topping. We feel this could become a fad. Soon, you'll see the commercials on the television in between Top Chef reruns: Burger King's new Bowling Alley Burger, two all-beef patties topped with Velveeta, Chili and Frito's.
