I promise you this is the last time I will write about Stuffy’s.
Tonight the whole family met up for dinner with some good friends, Kalisa and Chip. Kalisa blogs at I’ll Be the One in Heels. She writes about fashion, family, Memphis, Saints football and beach vacations. If you haven’t checked her blog out, you should. You’re in for some great laughs and informative rules for dressing right at the award shows.
Pretty much everything I’ve said in the past about Stuffy’s burgers still stands. It was actually validating for me to hear three other adults confirm how great their burgers were. My wife’s comment on her Facebook check-in simply read, “Awesome!” Even my eight year old, who’s burger of choice comes from Five Guys, loved his Stuffy’s burger and fries. I know he loved the squeeze ketchup bottle I put in front of him and told him to “have at it.” My youngest is a pretty picky eater and I didn’t expect him to even try a burger. Instead we ordered him a kids meal of chicken tenders and fries, which he proceeded to not eat because it didn’t look like something that would’ve been served at McDonalds.
The big burger eater of the night was our friend Chip, who went all out and ordered the Super Stuffy Sub. It was a full sized sub with 15oz of Stuffy’s burger patties and toppings. He ate it all too. Wow! I was in a food coma just from my 8oz burger.
The food there is just great. I will say that I’m a little worried about Stuffy’s ability to last in that neighborhood. No restaurant that’s occupied that building has ever made it for the long haul. And they were pretty slow for a Saturday night. Granted we got there a bit early, but by the time we left around 7 pm, a few people had come by for take-out and only one other group of diners came in to eat. Additionally, the Christian Rock music they had playing was weird. There’s no other way to describe it. For a burger joint located just off a university campus, I’d seriously think about going with a better genre of music.
I still give the the Stuffy burger 4.5 out of 5 stars. Still an awesome burger with huge taste, great toppings and mighty fine bun.
