If there’s any other street in the New Orleans Metro area with more burger joints than Veterans Memorial Blvd. in Metairie, I can’t think of it. You’ll also find Atomic Burger, Lee’s Hamburgers, Mooyah and New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood on this strip, and that’s just the ones I’ve tried!
The place was pretty busy but they make ordering really easy. When you walk in you’ll see all these menu boards. You can order at the counter, or do it on a computer, like we did. There were a bunch of them available. Once you order and pay with a credit card they send you a text letting you know they received your order. They then send you a text when your food is ready.
And the food!
I had the Shackburger, which was a cheeseburger with lettuce, tomato and “ShackSauce”. My dining partner forgot what her burger was called. There was just a picture of it in there, and it wasn’t on the regular menu I took pictures of. But it was just a cheeseburger with fried onion strings on it.
Both burgers were delicious! Nice and juicy with a crusty sear on the patties. The buns were very fresh. Like they bake them right there. They might as far as I know.
Until I was in my 30’s I only had hot dogs with chili and mustard on them. That’s just the way we do it down here. Then I took a trip to Chicago, and had a Chicago style hot dog. I was amazed! The idea of putting everything under the sun on a hot dog, EXCEPT chili and mustard, was totally foreign to me! But I loved it!
They have a hot dog like that here called the “Shack-cago Dog”. We got one. A lady working there, I assumed she was the manager, came by and asked how everything was. I had to ask here what kind of hot dogs they used. She said they were 100% all beef hotdogs from Niman Ranch. I knew this hot dog was special. It was fantastic.
And the fries are fantastic too. I hate fries that aren’t fried nice and crisp. These were.
Love this place. I highly recommend it!
