When it's time to head home , there is a rd behind there that leads past the gym and hits Sonterra rd. Take Sontera to Hardy Oak and that will get you back on 1604. I have never had any traffic issues going that route.
What a GREAT idea!!! Will DEFINITELY do that!!!

Stoneoak, you let me know how you like it the second time...and your burger is on ME if you don't love it...I'll reimburse you I am that certain that you will enjoy it!

Anyone try Smashburger near Evans and Hwy 281 yet??
Have not tried Smashburger, but have heard good reviews from some at work about it as well.

I had to bring 1/2 of my burger home yesterday because DH was SO stuffed after his (and he normally cleans up my leftovers)...and we both agreed we thought it was even great as leftover...the mushrooms/horseradish sauce had married into it.

Paka, I forgot to tell you, but last time I was there, it was awful! I think I need to go try it again, too. Just to make sure.

I eat here at least once a week. BE SURE to sign up for the email list...there is a daily special (not just for lunch...it's open to close) where you get a burger, fries, and drink for $6.99. It's a different burger each day, and some of them are very inventive and unique (lamb, bison, turkey, shrimp, scallops, etc). There are specials on the weekend, but they generally run about $10-$12 or so.


I agree the sweet potato fries are amazing. I haven't had the onion rings yet, and will give them a try next time.
