Burgersmith AKA Third Time's a Charm

More than a year ago Brian and I attempted to go to Burgersmith over by LSU.  He and James had gone there and had nothing but good things to say about it.  

However, the wait time was outrageous so we decided to go somewhere else that night for dinner.  

A few weeks ago a new Burgersmith opened just down the road.

We went a couple of weeks ago but just as we sat down we were told it would be a 45 min wait for our burgers. 

No deal. 

So we walked out again.  

On the weekend of the 4th we drove by there, hoping to stop on the way to pick up some fireworks.  But the parking lot was jammed and people were parking in the empty lot next door so we didn't even stop.


Finally we visited last Saturday just after they opened, found the parking lot just starting to fill up and quickly made our way inside (my third time inside.  Will I get a burger this time?). 

Beautiful day for a Smith Burger.

As we were seated our waiter asked if we had ever been to Burgersmith. 

I had to laugh . . .

Lemon ice water.

Looks like I'm gonna get me a Smith Burger.

We both had Smith Burgers and we shared a (huge) order of fries.

Brian suggested I get the mustard on the side in order to not interfere with the Smith Sauce.

Good call as I didn't even use the mustard.


The burger was great.  Perfectly cooked and very tasty.  I didn't turn flips over the cooked onions so I removed them and Brian quickly acquired them from my plate.  The fries were fabulous - just a tad bit spicy.  There are a couple of things on the menu that Brian wants to try - a Buffalo Burger to name one - so I'm sure we'll be back.
