Robert Griffin III has been taking the Washington area by storm ever since he became the franchise quarterback of the Washington Redskins. But as everyone knows, you aren’t actually famous until you have a burger named after you. Check it out: this behemoth is the RG3 Burger, courtesy of Metro Grill in Richmond, Virginia. (Twitter @KManDevil) If anyone out there not from the Washington, DC area wants to try and make their own RG3 Burger, here are the main components from Sarah Kogod of the Washington Post: Metro Grill, a bar and restaurant in the city’s Fan District, is offering a tower of meat and cheese they’re calling the “RG3 Burger.” The monster on bread consists of three patties made with a blend of wagyu beef and bacon fat, three cheeses (goat cheese, gorgonzola and gouda), three condiments (whole-grain mustard, sriracha mayo and roasted garlic spread), lettuce, tomato and bacon on an onion roll. Half of you had a heart attack just reading that description. Metro Grill owner Kevin Mandeville told the Washington Post that the burger came about as a way to target Redskins fans in town for training camp. “We were sitting around one afternoon last week and we were thinking about the best way to market something specific to the Redskins facility since they’re in town,” explained Kevin Mandeville, owner and operator of Metro Grill. “It kind of came together pretty easily between myself and my head chef. The roasted garlic is the ‘RG’ and the ‘3’ was the three cheeses.” As hard as this may be to believe, this gorgeous culinary creation is going for just $12 at Metro Grill. I know where I’m going for lunch today!
