Well, I found the best burger in CenLa....

Yall know that I eat at a different place in a different city everyday.
Well today I had to run up the Alexandria, and my brother told me we were going to get a burger at
The Salad Shop.

WoW!

What a surprise, it's one of the most unassuming buildings I've ever been in. (and lord knows I've been to some crazy spots)


(Google street view, and no the building or picture is not cut off, it's only about 5 ft wide)

So anyway this place has some huge salads with daily homemade dressing.
The group of guys sitting in there while we waited on our order (there's only 4 tables) all got huge shrimp poboys, that looked awesome.

But the star of the show was my cheese burger!

Nice thick, juicy & cooked to perfection. You can see the 3 ladies in the kitchen cutting the fresh onions, tomatoes, and thick arse cheese, off the block of cheddar shredding the lettuce, while ever so slightly toasting the lightly buttered kaiser buns!
The burgers are made to order and take about 20/30 minutes to come out, because they're so busy.
The fries were not cut which I can forgive, since the quality of the burger was so good.

But if your in the area, you certainly need to add this joint to your rotation.

Sounds nice, but you've obviously never been to Bernice's in Bunkie.

That's looks like the type of place that would have a good burger.

Actually I have, but it was a while ago, and I got the grilled chicken salad.
They do a good burger?

Best burger I've ever had. Get the Flook burger. It's their specialty burger.

I had a salad from there today. They have a steak sandwich that is great also. Prepare to take a nap after though.

Sounds like the place Annette, long time Spirits waitress, started. Never been.

Best I've had in CENLA is Rosie Jo's.

Bev burger is good. I still give the stuffed cheeseburger from the cottage the advantage.

I used to eat daily at a joint that would have made you think the roaches and rats were doing the cooking. But my first ever meatball poboy was love at first bite, kind of like my first Reuben which was an epiphany of flavors.
