    Hopefully better than the Red Bar. The beef is probably the same as the Red Bar though which is unimpressive.

    Forget the Red Bar - they just throw 'em together and I've even had cold burgers and old fries come to the table. :roll:

    Snapperhead's is popular because it's big and sloppy and they season the heck out of their meat. But they are just covering mediocrity.

    Smiling Fish has some quality beef.

    Anybody seen the documentary on IFC about hamburger joints? They go all over the country - to Chicago where the SNL cheeburger skit came from and to one place that deep fries their meat. Another place that steams theirs.

    In the 70's Akroyd, Belushi, and Murray did a takeoff on the Chicago landmark Billygoat Tavern by Wrigley field, complete with the goat curse. Cheeborger, cheeborger, cheeborger, cheeborger, no pepsi, coke.

    We like burgers at Red Bar and Shades. Unfortunately, Red Bar doesn't serve them at dinner. But that's cool, because some of us have agreed on other posts that a big burger and fries at lunch is a good cure for a hangover. It always worked when we lived in NOLA as undergrads. Still works when our sunset parties at SoWal get elongated. :funn:

    Shades is gone as you may know, but the new one in Inlet Beach is probably the same burger. Shades had, and the Red Bar has, mediocre burgers but are probably better if you have an empty beach stomach and/or hangover.

    I know about the Shades move. You're probably right about the burgers. Red Bar's atmosphere just makes everything good. And anyone who knows me knows that the sports bar atmosphere at Shades adds to my enjoyment of casual dining - I love watching college football and basketball!

    I had a Red Bar cheeseburger at lunch today. Preformed frozen patty, way overcooked. I'll stay away from it in the future.

    Believe it or not, that's much better than any burger you could get in our town "near the ATL." I don't count chain restaurants (you know, Ruby Tuesday's, Appleby's, etc.) as good dining (major exception: Houston's). Where we live, an 8-pack of ramen for 84 cents is not bad in comparison to what is available (based on cost/quality). One reason why we just invested in our third residence (in Midtown Atlanta).

    OMG. Houston's. Is anything on the Houston's menu bad? I don't think it is. What is with that place. I ate there 2 times last week.

    Occasionally we have a soggy bun with the burger, but that's it. I just HEART Houston's! Love the grilled chicken salad, love the grilled tuna salad, love the salmon, love the veggie side dishes (even the Brussels sprouts), love the ribs, love the bag, love the shoes, love everything. OOPS! The last part was from My Best Friend's Wedding.
