It's strange that in the last couple of weeks, I've been out on this road for dinner, twice.
I quite frankly, when we have a zillion restaurants in San Miguel, don't understand why
people drive out here to eat.
But I did on Sunday with my friends from Houston and a couple of locals here in San Miguel.
Destination, La Burger.
I had heard lots about it since it opened probably at least a year ago. The most frequent comment was the fact that a burger cost around $14USD. Absurd, I thought and think.
The restaurant is super casual and has a fun vibe. The company was great fun, as always. The wait was twenty minutes which astonished me for a table!
More then the food, I was extremely impressed with the wait staff. From the hostess who had us in a wait mode for a table to the servers. All were very well trained and were extremely hospitable in a good way.
It's a limited menu. Also a good thing, I think. They hand roll all their burgers.
They are cooked on this grill gizmo which is unique.
I got the smallest burger which was too small for the big bun. Other then that, it was ok.
I should mention that when I go out, unless its to Tookie's in Seabrook, I'm not planning on eating a burger. Therefore burgers don't typically impress me. Today was no exception.
Sadly, I have to say if you only took the food into account, it was not worth the price.
When you take the people, the ambiance, the waitstaff, then maybe.
You be the judge, go try it.
