Nachos, Pizza & Bur what?

Nothing like some comfort food to satisfy a real foodie like myself. In your mind, you want something healthy, but when you see an almost 3 foot tall dish of food come out of the kitchen, that thought goes out the window! This dish above is from the Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar. It is great for those who may not be into sushi, but loves bbq!
