BEST burger EVER!!!!
My FAVORITE food is a yummy hamburger - and I have eaten a lot of them. NONE compares to the Hought burger! We were on our way from CA to WA, and stopped in La Grande for lunch. We came upon Hought's and since my husband is a real ice cream LOVER, we HAD to stop.... OMGoodness, we are SO happy we did!
Easy selection of the burgers - it HAD to be the Hought, with their special sauce and some minor changes.... I am not a cheeseburger addict - just burgers!) But let me say, it starts with the most wonderful, tender, moist, but full burger bun! Then inside (but really going to all of the edges!) is this delectable patty that explodes with flavor in your mouth! The beef is BEEFY and it is complimented with the most wonderful sauce. It is Hought's sauce, and it is really the BEST! Add in my usuals - lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and there is the creation of heaven on earth... a Hought burger! Oh, and the size is good - a real meal!
My husband almost always orders something different - so we can taste different things. But why, since that burger IS the best!!! Wowsers, did he ever enjoy that burger!!! But he also ordered sweet potato tater tots. Omgoodness again - they were sweet potato sweet, flavorful, tender and perfectly cooked with a nice, crispy crust. We could eat this all day long!!!
To satisfy the ice cream craving, the owner created a fabulous ice cream concoction. She asked him exactly what he wanted to taste and she came up with the ingredients! They made up a cherry soda with a chocolate ice cream float creation. Like chocolate covered cherries, this was the BEST tasting float ever!
The day we were driving through La Grande, it was pouring down rain. Okay, I grew up in WA State - rain is fabulous! :) And it was... as we got the opportunity to wait out the downpour in the historical and fun restaurant, have the MOST fabulous burgers and lunch, plus chat with the nicest people on the face of the earth! You GOTTA try it out! The burgers cannot be beat, there are so many "sides" combinations to try, and the ice cream creations are limitless.... AND the staff cannot ever be beat! Superiorly nice folks who love their jobs, their guests, and life! It doesn't get better than this!!!
