Ring in National Cheeseburger Day at local eateries with distinct burgers ranging from the classic to the creative.
Today, Sept. 18, is National Cheeseburger Day and there are enough burger places in Lafayette to satisfy any diner for a full year. To help make your celebration easier, here’s a list of some of the most noteable cheeseburgers in town.
Judice Inn. Its deliciousness lies in its simplicity — and the secret sauce. Buttery buns and a juicy patty are all you need. The single cheeseburger is only $3.25.
Pete’s Family Sports Grill. Lucky for you, Pete’s offers its Big Pete and Little Pete burgers for any size appetite. The Big Pete is a full 1/2 pound of ground meat for $5.95, and the Little Pete is 1/4 pound for $4.50, and there is a choice of pepper jack, Swiss, provolone, American or cheddar cheese for $0.85.
Burgersmith. Try the all-natural beef burger for $6.25 and add cheese and chipotle mayo, which adds a creamy kick and elevates the juicy patty to another level.
Legends. With so many locations to choose from, it could be argued that Legends provides the most accessible cheeseburger — and some of the most variety. There’s the original, the Swiss mushroom, Hawaiian, ranch, bacon cheese or jalapeño, which all range from about $4.50 to $5.50.
French Press. The Couillon burger is a monster, with a 1/2-pound patty with lettuce, tomato, onion, egg, bacon, American cheese and special sauce. After eating this $10.50 burger for lunch, you won’t need dinner.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to offer shares of its stock to the public for the first time.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
