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.
