For Berger's I like it fatty 20% or more. Fat is flavor. And,IMHO there is a difference in flavor and texture. For things like, toco's , stuffed peppers and stuffed cabbage I would go for more lean. Just my OP.

I remember one of the original ground round restaurants. I remember movies and cartoons projected onto the wall, eating peanuts and tossing the shells on the floor and popcorn brought to the table. It was sheer chaos to me as a kid and so much fun!

That one is still open in bangor but of course has changed over the years.

Our local Ground Round was replaced by a very good finer dining restaurant. Dfinitely a step up.

I'd say you're dating yourself, but my memories of that same thing also includes a mug of beer...I wasn't a kid. Instead, I'm dating MYself!

Our local Ground Round used to have All You Can Eat (Lake Erie) Perch every Friday. We would go about twice a year and eat until we thought we would explode. They would also have local entertainment and to this day we remember one trio, McDonald-Lake-and-Notch, who did 1970s pop tunes...and sounded exactly like the group they were imitating. Amazingly good.
