It's famous. Mother's cheddar-stuffed, beer-battered and deep-fried burger always had a cult following. Then, in April 2009, the Food Network's 50-state burger roundup named the Heart Attack on the Plate as the burger you absolutely have to try in Maryland. That's the kind of thing that attracts burger pilgrims (including me) and a segment on the "Today" show with Matt Lauer. It's a grand hockey puck of a burger, given the brightness it needs with a dollop of homemade chipotle mayonnaise.
