I’ve written several times over the years about local diners who’ve embarked upon eating adventures.
Last year, I wrote about some local architects trying out every barbecue place they could think of. I’ve written about a couple dining their way through the alphabet. And I’ve written about a group of friends determined to try every Mexican joint in town.
Now, my friend and colleague Suzanne Perez Tobias (who’s birthday is TODAY, by the way) has launched a burger quest with her husband, kids and a couple of neighbors. Their mission: Try a new burger spot any time they can all get together and go.A Big Larry's burgerSo far, they’ve tried Bill’s Charcoal Grill at 2957 N. Arkansas, Big Larry’s Burgers at 328 S. Meridian in Valley Center, and West Street Burger at 130 S West St.
Suzanne’s favorite so far was the Big Larry’s burger, which she described as thick and juicy, and she loved that Big Larry also sold fried pickles and okra. As you can see, her list is long, and she may yet find a better burger.
Anyone else out there ever launched a restaurant quest?
