the bun was too big and it wasn't the sour dough type of bun even though they say it is, my bun was white so it wasn't even left long
enough to brown.
not enough sauce, too much cheese but it brought back
good memories of Linda's. Tater Tots were great!

Pretty good Reproduction, even down to the white paper pouch that it was served in. The one I tasted hada bit too much sauce than I remember. The patty seemed bigger than before and may be a little less cheese that I recall. In all a good trip down Mountain View Memory lane

During the early 70's I was enrolled at Foothill College and lived a block away from Linda's. Needless to say, I devoured more than my fair share of Parisian's (and everything else on the menu) over a period of several years. The Armadillo Willy's version isn't "spot on" but certainly close enough to bring back fond memories of the original. The sauce seems to be right on the money but the bun's texture and overall "construction" of the sandwich are a bit different. Even so, it's a great burger and the "super fries" are excellent! Now that the famous sauce recipe has been published on the web, it wouldn't be difficult to make your own Parisian's with a side of tots for a nostalgic family meal.
