All Day Every Day Special — Dagwood’s

When I was a child, there were few joys greater than tearing into that cardboard Happy Meal box and unwrapping the cheap plastic toy. The burger and fries were forgettable, a necessary evil in the grand pursuit of acquiring all the toys.

As an adult, I’ve given up the toy-collecting business, and now the burger and fries have become the object of my affections. And when I need a quality burger on the cheap, I head over to Dagwood’s for the All Day Every Day Special.

For just $5, you get a classic Dagwood’s burger, French fries and a 12-ounce draft beer (or a soda for the teetotalers out there). You can add cheese for an extra $0.50. There’s no flimsy plastic toy, and the cardboard box has been swapped out for a green plastic basket, but it’s a pretty decent adult substitute for the Happy Meal.

We all deserve a fun lunch once in a while, so grab a friend and hit up Dagwood’s. I don’t know if they’ve sold a billion hamburgers yet, but I’ll take Dagwood’s over the golden arches any day of the week.

Dagwood’s 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Monday- Thursday; 11 a.m.-2 a.m. Friday; 11 a.m.-1 a.m. Saturday; 11 a.m.- midnight Sunday 2803 Kalamazoo St., Lansing (517) 374-0390, dagwoodstavern.com
