I've just learned from Doug at the Seabrook Texas Tourism Office that one of the 100 burger joints in my book has closed. Nothing anti-climatic like cash-flow problems or a bad health department inspection were to blame for the closing though. It was last year's Hurricane Ike that did in the 35 year-old burger destination. "Oh, it was under about 6 feet of water," Doug explained. He didn't know what the owner's plans were for reopening but he mentioned, "I sure hope they reopen. People come from all over for their burgers."
It was my Southern food guru John T. Edge that led me to this out-of-the-way burger spot to sample their famous bacon-and-beef "Squealer". It's the ultimate bacon cheeseburger that is sure to spike your cholesterol. It would be a shame if this American culinary treasure were lost.
