I'll have to check out Sweet Lou's, sounds interesting. Tried Times Grill in Slidell and didnt care for it. Havent tried the one in Mandeville.

A decent burger....

Ok here goes...

First off, 100% ground beef chuck would be good. Cooked on a griddle and not a grill. Not into charcoal tasting burgers. Nice soft buns, but that are toasted and hot when youre given your burger. No thick, tough, ciabatta, or other funky type bun.

It would be great if they asked what I wanted on it too and only put the condiment of choice on there. Like mustard, no mayo, no ketchup. Really fresh veggies, sliced tomatoes, onion, lettuce and pickle. Other options are fine as long as the regular ole stand-bys are offered.

Oh and as for seasoning that beef. Salt and pepper only please. Oh and having it worked into the meat and not just sprinkled on top, that would be a bonus.

Good american cheese. No cheddar or other variations for me.

Add to that a nice side of fries, maybe crinkle cut. No funky seasonings on those either. Just salt please.

Oh and to be even more picky, Heinz ketchup on the table along with Tabasco and im set.

Hmm, I think I just described Kincaids. LoL.

At this point, chain or not, im missing it. Yep, we are used to driving, depending on how far I have to drive, might be worth it to just wait until my next trip home. LoL

If you ever make it to central Texas here's a few places to try. Jims burgers in Clifton, TX. Decent burgers, not my favorite, but decent. Jim also does pizza, apparently pretty good although I never tried it.

Then there is Grumps burgers in Granbury, TX. They have a location in Stephenville also. Very good burgers. Thick juicy real beef, no fillers, toasted bun with fresh veggies.

Then of course there is Kincaids in Ft. Worth.

I did try Lees and it was a mess. Maybe because we got them to go. They ended up being little soggy balls at the bottom of the bag. Yuck. I dont think ive ever seen a take-out burger in that "shape".

Does it exsist anywhere on the Northshore? Ive been here for several months now and ive tried burgers from a lot of places, haven't found a good one yet. Im from the Central Texas area and a really good burger could be found within 20 miles in any direction I wanted to go. At this point im wishing for and missing like crazy, Whataburger!

Im not even going to get started on the lack of decent Tex-Mex places. Man I miss good salsa. I found Tacos and Beer in Slidell, not bad, it's the most decent stuff ive come across.
