Happy first day of December!! This is my favorite time of the year, from December 1 until the 31st and it's officially Christmas movie season. We kicked it off with a viewing of "Elf" last night. That movie just makes you happy.
I was going to share some lovely food pictures with you from yesterday when Israel and I tried The Burger Stand for the first time! But somewhere in the move, I have lost my card reader for my smaller camera. Sad day.
I was really excited to try this place because I have heard great things about it for months now. After debating for a little while on where to eat lunch, we settled on this place. I ordered the Classic burger and Israel got the Smoked burger. Thinking that sharing a "basket" of fries would be enough between us, we were both shocked when our basket looked more like a bucket of fries!! As much as Baby Sanchez loves fries, there was no way we could have finished it just the three of us. ;)
While I did enjoy my first experience there, I thought it was a bit pricey. And the burgers were good, but they tasted a bit too smokey to me. Maybe it's just these crazy pregnancy hormones that make everything taste a little different to me now. I really, really wanted to love this place because it was talked up so much, but honestly I couldn't help comparing it to Five Guys and loving Five Guys more.
I do appreciate that Topeka now has a cool, local burger place and I'm excited for that. :) So, good job, Burger Stand.
