      Most burgers here from a restaurant type place are well over $20, most around the 25 mark, but that usually includes chips too. At a fast food place (not a chain type) probably $8 maybe $9 with egg and bacon.

        Basic burger on Marco Island last winter was $10; grouper sandwich $15-$20; usually with one side dish

          All I know is,
          The seafood restaurant by us is now charging $3 for a side of slaw........freaking cabbage! AND, this is not by any means a high end restaurant.
          I bought eggs yesterday a Wally world and they are up 260% from three months ago.
          Beef is up 200+%
          Food is beginning to get freakin painful. Shit, I might actually begin to lose some weight.
          Even my beer is up 20-25%....

          LETS GO BRANDON!!!!!!!

            I am one guy. Don't eat a lot at home or out. $150 the other day for nibbles. Everything to touched was $5-10 each. Crazy.

            Amen to that, sadly most people have no idea how bad it's going to get, those that remember the Nixon Carter days will know if they can think.
