TUSCALOOSA, AL -

If you're looking for a 15 ounce national championship burger, topped with bacon and onion rings and everything else.

You've come to the right place.

"We've been here for 18 seasons," Rama Jama's owner Gary Lewis said.  "A lot of people say, 'why do you say seasons?'  Obviously what's right across the street from us there. I say seasons."

Rama Jama's resturant sits in the shadow of Bryant-Denny Stadium.

"I'm not a smart business man," Lewis said.  "I was by one day and saw a for rent sign on this delapidated old store.

"I said that might make a good small restaurant next to Bryant-Denny Stadium with the Alabama theme."

But in those 18 seasons, Lewis has not seen one 'Bama from inside the stadium. His focus remains on hamburgers.

"Every time we win, we sell more hamburgers," Lewis said.  "I think Coach Saban is worth whatever he's getting."

Speaking of the iconic coach...

"It's really ironic, the resemblance," Lewis said.  "People come up and say, 'I thought you were Coach Saban.'  I tell them no, I'm just a hamburger cooker across the street from the stadium."
