The burger is a faithful companion when everything else on the menu sounds weird, or when you want to find the cheapest meal. It’s really hard to get a burger wrong. Here are 4 local places that get their burgers so right:
Aron’s Pharmacy, Gift, and Grill
Passing by Aron's, you might assume that it is simply a place for people to pick up their medicines. However, if you make it inside you will be pleasantly surprised to find it to be much more. In the back of the store is a small, diner-style restaurant. They serve breakfast and lunch, anything from pancakes and eggs to patty melts and curly fries. But they make it on this list because their burgers are incredible. The friendly, family-owned atmosphere only makes it better.
Enoch’s Irish Pub
Experience the luck of the Irish here when you order one of their burgers. It’s that good. Their steak fries are the perfect complement. Speaking of the fries, you should also order the Conly’s Cheese Fries, while you're there. Enoch's has a burger for every mood you’re in.
Play it super safe with the Eddie Collins Burger (not even cheese on this one), pretend you’re a morning person with the Full Irish Breakfast Burger, or go exotic with the Bombay Burger (house peach chutney, blue cheese crumbles, provolone cheese and a side of house curry sauce). They even have vegetarian options, replacing the beef patty with a grilled portabella mushroom.
After you and your friends have polished off a plate of seafood nachos at Trapp's, their cheeseburger is a classic one. Served with your choice of sides, including their homemade chips. This cajun-style restaurant packs it full of flavor. The view from the patio isn’t bad either, featuring the Ouachita River, railroad tracks, and the Monroe city skyline.
