I like a good burger as much as the next guy, but I'm not a fiend for them. I can go months without eating one. So I haven't gotten around to most of these places mentioned in the link yet. I did try Company Burger this week while I was off work. The meat is good, fresh ground and cooked in front of you (if you're sitting at the bar). The bun is supposedly custom-made for them, but I'd say it needs a little work - mine nearly disintegrated after a few bites. Fries were hand-cut, but on the soggy side. Beer selection was very limited, but they comped my NOLA Blonde since it was Day 1 (I didn't realize that until after I arrived), so I am not complaining!! One thing I didn't like: a "napkins" were a big roll of brown paper on the counter, which everyone was touching....ewww. Like eating in the men's room. Hope that was just an opening day issue - the server told me they got wayy more traffic than they expected that day (social media, anyone?). So It was week one and they weren't clicking on all cylinders yet - nothing unusual there. I'll definitely be back. Had 5 Guys in Calif. - OK, but wouldn't cross the lake for them.
Have heard good things about Cowbell's food (they have had some service issues, too). Tru Burger reports haven't been as positive. And one of my offices is quite close to Juicy Lucy, but I haven't made it there yet, will soon. Well, enough about that, time to break for for your New Orleans Saints (now streaming world-wide on WWL radio).
