September 18th is a day set aside to honor America's favorite sandwich.  It's National Cheeseburger Day!

If you'd like to celebrate NCD, where do you go to find the best cheeseboyga in Shreveport/Bossier?  I posed that question on Facebook yesterday, and received numerous responses, not the least of which was "Me!"  But I have a feeling that Patricia and Danielle might be a little taken aback if 100 or so hungry residents showed up at their houses expecting to be fed.  So, we decided to list the Top 5 places our respondents mentioned that actually make burgers for a living.

 

 

  • Twisted Root

    One of the newer burger restaurants in the Ark-La-Tex, Twisted Root has quickly found a fanatical following. You can get 'em frou-frou or down home greasy spoon--there's a cheeseburger for every palate.   And if their wide selection of beef burgers isn't enough for you, try a cheeseburger made with elk, buffalo, camel, or any of several varieties of exotic meat.

  • Papa & Company

    I've been hearing about Papa & Company since I moved to Shreveport at the first of the year.  This neighborhood burger joint is only open from 10:30 to 4 Mon-Thu and Saturday, and 10:30 to 5 on Friday because their bundles of beef on a bun sell out so fast.

  • Griff's

    This small chain of burger stands started out in Wichita, Kansas, in 1960.  Griff's has only 3 locations in Louisiana--Ruston, Bossier City, and Shreveport. Depending on your appetite you can have the Giant, the Double Giant, or the Triple Giant cheeseburger.

  • Striker's Cafe at Holiday Lanes

    The self-proclaimed home of "the best burgers in Bossier City", there's nothing quite like a beef patty sizzling on an open grill in a bowling alley.  It's the simple things that make life great.  Try Marlene's Favorite--it's a 6 oz. burger served with melting Swiss cheese, grilled onions, and mushrooms.

  • Whataburger

    It is just inconceivable that we could leave this southern institution off the list.  (Besides, my wife would kill me if I did.)  To this day I say it's the grilled, buttered buns that make the Whataburger the mouth-watering delight it has always been.
