“Crazy but good,” said Pauli’s owner Paul Barker. “I think it’s in my DNA.”
Things like the “Jamaican Me Crazy”, the “Fat Felix” and the “Pauli-Tician.”
But if you bring your significant other there on Valentine’s Day, you might be interested in buying them the “Big Boy Burger” for $3,000.

With 48 hours’ notice to make a jewelry store run, Pauli’s will plant that sparkling ring squarely on your partner’s buns.
“It’s the Big Boy Burger proposal,” Barker said. “Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a ring with barbecue sauce dripping down your arm right?”
With just a week before the big day, Paul is hoping the combo of ice and bacon will entice a handful of sandwich shop romantics to hop on-board.
The burger features a 7/8 carat princess cut, Neil Lane engagement ring, framed by round diamonds and a 14k gold band.
“No confirmed orders, but there’s a couple of very interested people,” Barker said.MORE NEWS: Boston Marks Juneteenth With Celebration In Nubian Square
