Ben’s Burgers, Metairie, LA Report #199

I was very sad when the only location of Bud’s Broiler in the city of New Orleans closed down.  Then, I was happy to hear they were reopening not far from their original location.  I love Bud’s Broiler.  And now I LOVE this place!

This place actually used to be a Bud’s Broiler until they broke away from the chain, but basically kept all the same food.  And it’s delicious!  They’re open 24/7, and everything is cooked over a charcoal fire.

The menu isn’t long or complex, and unlike most burger places you can grab a cold beer to go with your meal.

At Bud’s I used to like the #4, which was a burger with their hickory sauce or chili and cheddar cheese.  Here, that’s a #2.  That’s important.  Don’t forget it.  We decided on a #2 with chili and the “Special”, which is a double cheeseburger dressed with lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, bacon, fry sauce (I ate it and I’m still not sure what it is), and chili cheese fries! For good measure we added a hot dog with chili, fries, onion rings and a vanilla milkshake.

Everything was delicious!  One warning about the Special though.  Unless you can unhinge your jaw like a snake eating a rabbit, your going to have trouble biting it.  Fortunately I can!  The last three pictures are the Special, the Special cut in half, and the hot dog cut in half.  Not sure why they slice the hot dog up like that but it’s good!

I loved the fries.  No stupid batter or seasoned coating on them.  Just plain, crispy fried potatoes.  The onion rings are thick slices of onion with minimum batter.  Really good.

I highly recommend this place!

SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT:

Back to Ben’s today. And I had The Big Ben again. I had to pry that thing out of the container with a fork, then cut it in half to make it more manageable! It’s still just as delicious. Go get one! Open 24/7.
