Lee’s Hamburgers, Metairie, LA Report #227

This place has been here as long as I can remember, but until today, I’ve never stopped in.  I’m not sure how long this location has been here, but the original Lee’s opened up in downtown New Orleans in 1901! Small place.  Only four booths and five tables.  But that should be plenty, because the… Continue reading Lee’s Hamburgers, Metairie, LA Report #227

La Fiesta, Gretna, LA Report # 33
