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

I’m doing pretty good!  I had an excellent meal last Friday night at Boucherie, and followed it up with an excellent meal here tonight!

  This place has an address of 5001 Airline Dr., but if you’re driving down Airline looking for it, you might miss it.  It’s off Airline a bit, on Transcontinental Dr., right across the street from Short Stop Poboys .  But I tell you what.  After eating the sandwiches here, I’ll always opt for this… Continue reading Banh Mi Boys, Metairie, LA Report #180

Bravo, Metairie, LA Report #178

  We tried to go to a restaurant near this place and there was an hour wait for a table.  I was too hungry to wait an hour.  I get grumpy when I get hungry.  And mean.  So we started driving around aimlessly not knowing where we were going to eat dinner but knowing it… Continue reading Bravo, Metairie, LA Report #178
