8. Ted’s Frostop
Uptown and Metairie
What you’re having: a double “Lot-o Burger” with chili and cheese, waffle fries, and a gigantic ice cream sundae
When you’re getting ready to drop that resolution to “not eat until you get gout”, and your plan is to do so with a hamburger, why go out of your way for a hoity-toity gourmet burger with things like pickled shiitakes on it? For an honest-to-god heart-stopper of a beef puck, it’s difficult to beat the Double Lot-o at Frostop, most notably because they actually add rich creamery butter to the meat. Plus, their waffle fries are off the chain, and the place has enough ice cream to kill a mule.
BONUS: Ted’s Frostop (see above)
What you’re having (if you’re not having the Lot-o Burger, waffle fries, and a float): the “Player’s Breakfast” -- four scrambled eggs, four sausages/strips of bacon, two pancakes, extra cheesy grits, and your choice of drink
Why is Frostop on this list twice? BECAUSE PLAYER’S BREAKFAST.
