After a wonderful time out on the boat, plunging into the water, or lounging by the shore, there’s something nostalgic about finishing the day with an old-fashioned cookout. Pop’s Lake House Burger captures those feelings atop a toasted buttered bun! These burgers are extra meaty and with a touch of tang to make them especially savory. Grilled to summertime juicy perfection, you’ll never think of barbeques the same way! Pull out the deck chairs and gather around the fire pit to best enjoy Pop’s Lake House Burger.
