We'd been hearing the buzz for a few months now, but 312DD just got a confirmation from a highly placed Ultimate Insider that TRU will be adding a signature burger to its menu soon:
"So I now have clearance to tell you about the take-out burger window that TRU is adding. Managers recently went to NY to taste high-class burgers. Should be really good. Have to give credit to LEYE (Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises) for adaptability."
