Best of BR – Best Burgers

If you haven’t noticed from our Instagram feed, we at Eat.Love.BR., love a good burger! We decided to create our own list of the Best Burgers in Baton Rouge. It was a grueling task, but we pushed through and made the necessary sacrifices to our waistlines so you could know where to get the best of the best! Enjoy!Masons#10 Mason’s Grill with the Cajun Shrimp Burger! Mason’s Grill is a family owned and operated restaurant that has been serving amazing food since 1998. This burger features a half-pound beef patty stuffed with jalapenos, piled high with sauteed shrimp, pepper-jack cheese, and more jalapenos! All of Mason’s fresh burgers have 80/20 fat content and are hand-pattied to order.

This fresh beef patty is topped with provolone cheese, grilled shrimp seasoned with a special seafood seasoning and finished off with a house-made remoulade sauce! This is a go-to spot for good food at great prices and they pride themselves in their customer service!

Regardless of how you feel about American Cheese, this burger is one that is set apart from the rest! Because this burger is prepared on a flat grill, it retains SO much flavor! A local staple for years, you can get your fix at one of their three locations: Highland Road outside the LSU gates, Plank Road across from Tony’s Seafood, and on Main Street in Baker.

City Cafe has been serving South Baton Rouge for nearly 14 years, during which time they have given back to their community by donating to local charities.

Spanish Town#5 Spanish Town Market with their Fiesta Burger! Their burgers are 81/19 fat content, fresh and never frozen, hand-pressed daily, and made to order. To top it off, all of their produce is sourced from local distributors.

Re:Imagine what your weeknight dinner could taste like. Re:Connect over a good meal with old friends. Re:Invent your boring go-to dinner. That’s exactly what life-long best friends, Sarah and Kristen, have done! Natives of Baton Rouge, these ladies have grown up immersed in each other’s lives. From playing sports together in middle school, to traveling the US, they have been by each other’s side through thick and thin.

Re: was born out of a love of friends, food, and fresh ingredients. And since most gatherings in Baton Rouge center around sharing a meal with friends and family, Sarah and Kristen know the kitchen is a place to be creative and re:invent favorite dishes. They currently have two flavors available. The one that started it all, Garlicky Vinaigrette, is versatile enough to compliment anything you serve. It is simple, fresh, and delicious! Their latest option is their Greek Vinaigrette and it is quickly becoming a fan favorite!

Re: is currently producing their beloved dressings in the kitchen incubator on the campus of LSU. You can find it online or at retail stores in the Baton Rouge area!
