Where have you guys had notably good hamburgers or steaks at? I’m starting to travel more so I’m hoping to expand my list over time, but honestly the best steak AND burger was in the same city for me…Shreveport, Louisiana. I came to appreciate that the location led to better quality meat being supplied, even at the same price points as other areas I’ve had beef.
Hamburger - Fumblebrewski in Shreveport, Louisiana
The regular hamburgers are really good. But this is the place where I discovered the Juicy Lucy and similar style burgers. I’ve had stuffed burgers elsewhere, but never as good.
Steak - Country Tavern in Shreveport, Louisiana
This place is part restaurant and part bar with outdoor seating, and they are closed off from eachother and provide different experiences. What doesn’t change is the steak, which is the best I’ve ever had. Filet, ribeye, steak appetizer bites…it doesn’t matter. An honorable mention goes to Texas Street Tavern in Bossier City, Louisiana. Its basically the same steak. My understanding is that one of the owners of Country Tavern had a falling out there, mainly due to how he viewed his female employees and how often he dated them. So he left and opened a different restaurant across the bridge that’s in a slightly odd location but has a little bit more polish and sex appeal than the Country Tavern. And since the owner is a horndog, the waitstaff tends to be more attractive.
