Take beef patties, shrimp and lobster tail, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste; squeeze 1/2 lemon over shrimp and tail. Lightly toast your bun on the grill. Build burger in the following order: Potato bun, thousand island spread on each side, place pickle chips on the bottom bun followed with the beef patties covered in melted cheese.
