Cheeburger options

Where’s the “S”? –

Cheeburger Cheeburger

Cheeburger Cheeburger, though hard to say, has been a favorite of my parent’s in Baton Rouge, LA for the past few years. I took a few days off of work for Easter so my wife and I made the 5 hour drive to stay in Baton Rouge for the holiday. Our first night here I rounded up a few willing family members and headed out for my second Burger Tyme in as many days. Cheeburger is a 50’s diner themed burger chain that allows people to customize their orders to an almost obscene amount. From the dozens of burger combinations to the 78 different shake options, an unprepared customer has a lot of decisions to make. When we arrived we were greeted by the milkshake “bar” were the milkshake orders are filled. Cheeburger Cheeburger prides itself on their delicious milkshakes of which I’ve heard good things but we are here for the burgers. There is a disclaimer on the menu stating that orders are cooked fresh when you order and that you can expect to wait about 15 minutes while they prepare your burger. I’m OK with that. I can wait for a good burger. This place is more of your typical sit-down restaurant with a waiter who takes your order as opposed to most burger joints where you wait in line, place your order, and then find a place to sit. Once I opened the menu and viewed the list of options for the burger, I knew I had my work cut out for me.

Cheeseburger Pleaseburger-

Cheeburger Cheeburger cheeseburgerGiven the plethora of options I was not intimidated. I managed to order my usual 1/3rd lb cheeseburger with what I consider typical toppings; lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, mayo, mustard, ketchup, and American cheese. Fries come separate at Cheeburger. We ordered a large basket to split for the table of four. True to their word, we waited about fifteen minutes and our burgers were delivered to our table. The patty was very thick and juicy. It was made of fresh ground beef and was adequately flavorful. The cheese was nicely melted over the patty. The veggies were OK but were unevenly spread on the burger. The bun, I thought, was good. It was soft and slightly chewy (in a good way). One problem I had was that the bottom bun was slightly soggy which in my mind makes the initial bites unpleasant. Once I bit in I was delighted by the combinations of all the flavors as they worked together well however they all began to slide around and juices were running down my arm. I guess what I’m saying is, this is a good but messy burger. Fortunately they provide each table with an entire roll of napkins! The fries were exceptionally good. They were fresh cut and fried to a nice crisp.


The Wrap it Up –

I’ve had Cheeburger a few times before but this was the first time I went with the goal of finding great burgers! As I previously mentioned, this is a favorite of my parents and I can see why. Everyone that came with us was pleased with their burger orders of various combinations. Some had onion rings and honey mustard, while another had Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces on their burger. We ordered shakes too but I’d have to say that for the cost, skip the shakes unless you want a dessert. They are thick and not really drinkable while you’re eating your burger.  Another thing to note is that Cheeburger Cheeburger was one of the more costly Burger Tymes. While the burger and fries were very good, the burger, fry, and regular drink combo is going to run you about $10 or more.

Here’s a hint – if you like onion rings but want fries too, you can order “frings” which is a basket of half fries and half rings.

    This burger was goooooo0oood. I love how you have so many options, from pickles to peanut butter. I deeply enjoyed my combination of onion rings and honey mustard on my burger. I even got more honey mustard to dip it in! The tasty fries and milkshake at the end, made the burger eeeven better. Though the burger was a handful, trying not to make a mess and to keep it all together, i was thoroughly pleased and left with a full belly.

    Definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

    When i ate my burger i really enjoyed the first bite. it is true that it is a messy burger … however i think it just depends on how much appearance matters to you. I felt its taste out-weighed the hassle.

    This burger was good and I loved the 20+ free topping choices (peanut butter is an option!). One day I’m going to get a burger with EVERYTHING on it. The fries could have been a little crispier and the shakes were just ok. They should have stuck with the Trivial Pursuit question cards instead of the the ones they have now.

    I have to say, I just came from Cheeburger Cheeburger – Houston location not BR – and it was not a good burger experience. I thought these guys had clout but they disappointed. I have to admit that the selection of extras was great, everything from sauteed mushrooms/onions to your typical lettuce & tomato. What disappointed me was that the meat had no flavor. It was the right texture but the flavor was mysteriously missing from the burger. I could taste the vegetables and the bun was pretty good but the meat was the filler – a sad choice for a burger place. However, the fries were delicious. The small order was more than ample for two people. I think I’d rather have a McDonalds burger next time. On to the next burger . . . .

    Cheeburger Cheeburger has a wonderful ambiance that brings you back in time several decades. They offer 50 or more styles of milk shakes, which is their true strength. Patrons can get their picture on the wall of fame (or shame if you count calories) for eating a 1 lb. burger (1/2 lb. for kids).

    Their burger ingredients are solid, but the chef’s execution in arranging the burger and toppings are less than exemplary (many napkins are required here).

    Overall, if you’re looking for a throw-back style burger joint with above average milk shakes, give Cheeburger a try. If you’re looking for that once-in-a-lifetime burger; keep looking.

    Just got back from Cheeburger Cheeburger for a burger challenge. I didn’t so much care for the burger. The review was right when it said the burgers are messy and the bun broke apart halfway through me eating it. The fries however were excellent! I could have just eaten those and not the burger and would have been happy. Oh and by the way they totally gave me the wrong milkshake…as you can see I’m still a little sensitive about it BUT it was still pretty good!

    […] What pushes it over the top is the unexpected originality and the quality. Everything places like Cheeburger Cheeburger and Five Guys fail at, Dearman’s triumphs. It is local, it is original, and above all, it is […]
