I’m writing a quick post today because my husband is about to leave town for 18 days. We just had sort of a “last supper”. I sent him to see John at Spirit of New Orleans to get some takeout. As much as I love John’s fried chicken, shrimp, and ribs, I really wanted to see if his burgers are up to snuff. Pictured below are the two we ordered today.
This is a Giant Burger and it is, indeed, giant. It comes with bacon, cheese, lettuce jalapenos, tomatoes, onions, and barbecue sauce, as well as a small side of delicious homestyle fries.
And this is the Cajun burger, which is almost as big. It comes with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese, and barbecue sauce. I’m not sure if it’s spice Cajun style or not. I didn’t taste it. Bill says it was very mild.
Both of these burgers were juicy and tasty, made with beef. We had to cut them in half and will finish them later, because they were just too huge to eat in one sitting. I, for one, was hungry when we started. When we find German restaurants that have good burgers, I like to point them out. I know how rare finding really good burgers can be in these parts.
Bill got me some ribs for after he leaves, too, sort of a consolation prize before I get back on the booze free wagon and eat whatever’s quick and easy and doesn’t make a mess.
These burgers are definitely not Whoppers, that’s for damn sure! John says pretty soon, he’ll be grilling outside and they’ll have live music events. He’s having a jazz breakfast on Sunday this week, but unfortunately, I won’t be making it to that. Ah well. Maybe next time. Fattening soul food and good live music is a winning combination in my opinion. What a treat it is to have him so close to us. It’s almost like having another Tommi’s Bistro.
