Sometimes it’s easy to forget about Doe’s greatness. The restaurant is practically a Little Rock landmark and the folks over there have been churning out good food for what feels like forever. I say all of this because my in-laws were in town last week […]
Every time I bite into a cheeseburger that I’ve never had before … and it’s good … Samuel L. Jackson goes off in my head.
This happened the other day for lunch at Doe’s. You see, I go to Doe’s a couple times of year, but always seem to order the fried shrimp, soaked salad, Porterhouse, and fries. Never do I even think about getting a burger, which is only offered at lunchtime. Turns out this 80/20 fresh beef burger with all the fixings and your choice of cheese is pretty darn tasty. My wife opted for the cheddar. It was technically her burger and she’s not a fan of American cheese. For the record, the only correct cheese choice for a good old fashioned, greasy cheeseburger, like the one at Doe’s, is American cheese.
Doe’s burger reminded me of another popular Little Rock option–David’s Burger–but without the excessive salt.
Would I put it in the absolute upper echelon of local burgers? Probably not. For me, it sits in a tier below Leo’s, Ciao Baci, and Midtown, but I’d definitely put it in my Top 10 range. Simply put, it’s a tasty burger that I wouldn’t hesitate to order.
Did you know the Little Rock Doe’s is celebrating its 30th anniversary on Tuesday? To honor the occasion, the restaurant is doing $3 (normally $7.75) hamburgers $3.50 (normally $8.50) cheeseburgers for lunch on Tuesday, May 8th. They’re also offering a dinner time 8-oz filet for $30 from May 7-11th. Both deals are for dine-in only.
Living in Little Rock for almost five years has allowed me to build up a strong list of restaurants to bring my out-of-town guests. These places aren’t necessarily serving the absolute best food in town, but they are restaurants with an excellent combination of food […]
Random thoughts and ramblings on local food and drink… I love David’s Burgers just as much as the next guy. Heck, it’s definitely in the discussion for top 3 burgers in town, but can they ease up on the salt shaker at the WLR […]
