Dirt Cheap Eats 2009: Z Burger

There’s a reason why Z-Burger sees an endless stream of customers—the portions are big, and it serves the sort of sinful fare that immortal-feeling college kids gobble up. The thin burgers ($3.39 to $5.79) are seasoned well, cooked nicely, and available with a varied choice of free toppings, including fried onions and sautéed mushrooms.

A large order of fries ($4.19) or onion rings ($4.39) could be shared by four people; to try both without being buried under two mountains of fries and onion rings, opt for the Half-and-Half ($4.49). There are nearly 80 milkshake flavors, and the chocolate-cherry and the black-and-white (regular $3.39, large $4.59) have just the right amount of sweet. The Tenleytown location further sweetens the deal with 99-cent shakes Mondays from 3 to 6.

Open daily for lunch and dinner.
