Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

I normally wouldn’t review a national chain but I’m a serious burger lover.  That doesn’t mean I’d review joints like Burger King or McDonald’s, but just the special burger places, like Atomic Burger (Report #39), Desi Vegas (Report #1), Ground Patti (Report #13), Mooyah (Report #67), New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood (Report #25), Red Robin… Continue reading Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

Root Down, Denver, CO Report #72

i Traveling home and I ended up with a long layover in Denver right at my favorite time of day. Dinner time! Saw this place so I stopped and looked at their menu. Looked like their intent was to take a different spin on foods so I figured I’d give them a try. I found… Continue reading Root Down, Denver, CO Report #72

New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25

  This place is a local chain with several locations around the New Orleans metro area.  They’ve been around since 1984 and are pretty good!  In spite of the name I find they don’t really have outstanding burgers.  If I want a good burger I’d head elsewhere.  But I had been in the mood for… Continue reading New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25
