There's a phenomena at Jesuit every Thursday that few can explain. We went to the students to discover why one item in the cafeteria is more popular than the others.
Fried Chicken. A testament to the American dream. A staple to Sunday Night football or ravenous late night Whataburger excursions. Originally a Scottish dish, fried chicken has pervaded this nation's culture from the ground up.

They are a staple of celebrations, the main dish of a cookout, or the pathway to a solid nap. And with this integration, burgers vary drastically...
Weighing in at 400 lbs and measuring almost 10 feet tall, a great white-furred behemoth ducks its snow speckled head, entering into its icy cave.
