Copas adds flair to burgers

David Copas at the grill

David Copas, self-proclaimed king of the grill, is the owner of Audio Xtremes, a local custom car and home audio and accessories business, which has been in operation for 15 years.

David has the reputation of taking care of his customers, as witnessed by  his hundreds of repeats and referrals.

He’s known around town by the distinctive vehicle he drives, which doubles as a Kicker audio show truck. David has expanded into custom golf carts, of course tricked out any way one wants them.

David is happily married to Lynnette, a successful stylist and cosmetologist at Mylinda’s Salon and Spa. Together they love to entertain their friends and family, especially with sports-themed cookouts. Both are die-hard Rangers fans and never miss an opening day at the ballpark.

This variation of the traditional cheeseburger is one of their favorites to make for their friends and family.
