Good Stuff’s menu even includes  odes to the commander in chief and first lady — it features a “Prez Obama Burger” (which includes bacon, onion marmalade, Roquefort cheese and horseradish mayo) and a “Michelle Melt Free Range Turkey Burger” (topped with caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce and herb garden mayo).

An ITK spy reports that President Obama ordered a “Farmhouse Cheese” burger, but made an undoubtedly controversial substitution, choosing to top his meat with cheddar instead of American cheese. The president also added caramelized onions.
