Well I'm a seasonal bum and have worked in a lot of tourist towns and resorts, and from my experience, with side and a domestic beer, you'd probably be paying $15 for a basic burger and up to $20 for a specialty burger on average. Maybe a bit more/less depending on how popular the overall area is, but you have to remember that everything is more expensive in a tourist town, especially rent. One town I worked at in Alaska had a Friday night $10 Burger & Beer special and it was a packed house every time. $5.95 would be a good price for a lunchtime/late night single cheese & fries to-go deal. Something that uses your most basic ingredients and can be knocked out fast and in large quantities. A daily special craft burger that uses different ingredients is what you hook your peak 6-9 dinner crowd with and needs a higher price because it takes more time and money to make.>>113709441
Given the size of restaurant, Bob definitely needs to capitalize on to-go business, especially since he's only a few blocks from the beach and burgers are very portable. He needs something like a beach picnic special that's designed to feed a family of six on the move.
