Cook describes pressure of grilling for POTUS


Alfaro added, “The guy who brought the order in was like, ‘This is for the president of the United States … I just started cooking.”

If the presidential food request wasn’t stressful enough, Alfaro said security personnel stood by the grill and examined him prepping Obama’s burger.

But the cook may never know what Obama thought of his $8 meaty meal. Chris Manjourides, the owner of the sandwich spot, said that Obama took his burger and fries to-go because “he wanted something to eat in the car.”

“He didn’t have time,” Manjourides said, “He was starving.”
