    What's the first local burger joint you intend to hit when free to do so?

    For me it's Big Jud's.

    We're free to hit em up, here.
    Getting take-out or delivery helps keep them afloat

    I’m still weary of getting takeout no matter what they say
    I’m gonna wait it out
    It’s not the food but people that worry me.

    Not necessarily a burger joint but there is a local restaurant called Bigfoot and they make the best cheesesteak around.
    I was eating fast food a lot and am sure I’m gonna feel a lot better not eating it for a while, might even lose that weight I’ve been planning on for a while

    Back Yard Bard & Grill here in Houston. They have the -best- burgers... seriously, nobody comes close IMO. Can't wait to sit at their bar again soon and order a big juicy rare California burger. yumm....

    That must be one heck of a burger if you enjoy them rare!

    Just overspent at the local barbecue joint. They ain't gonna make it. They were out of ribs. The brisket was o.k. but the chicken was raw in the middle.

    To bad. Good BBQ can be hard to come by. Especially, based on the time I spent working up there, in New England.

    Haven’t been there in forever because of business travel and family commitments, but I might have to go to Harvey’s Wineburger. Red wine marinated ground beef. Properly seared. Sounds silly, but awfully good in person. Need a good beer while I’m at it.

    There is a little mom and pop sports bar near our drummers house called Kay’s Sports Bar. I usually get a burger there before band practice on Thursdays. I don’t what it is about pub burgers cooked on old flame grills but they can be sooooo good. That’s where I’m going.

    A very old time restaurant business shut it's doors yesterday, my family and I have been going there for years and years. I went there when they first opened up, used to enjoy it then, was still enjoying it this year! I hope they can open back u again.
    I wrote a couple of weeks ago about my son doing just what you suggest. He went over to a place that our whole family, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews and cousins, and close kin have been going to for years, and bought a lot of food one night, and me a flat of cinnamon rolls in hopes of helping support them to stay afloat. Yesterday they closed up for good, they've been a go to place in town for many for fifty years. War is hell!

    Butcher's Nook. Yup, they even own the local butcher shop for local cattle ranches, so the beef is as fresh as possible. They will bring your order out to the car during this period. Buns are top notch homemade with Montana flour too. My best friend comes up here from NorCal just to have one of their egg sandwiches ... and then to visit me.:oops:

    A burger out is a choice when nothing even sounds better.
    I’ll do burgers, better at home, probably a billion times over a burger out. Maybe I jest a touch but I probably eat a burger out 5-6 times a year and never from a franchise fast food type of crap
    30+ burger dinners made at home a year

    Joe Schmoe's in Orange County, CA. And In N Out. But I've been liking what's coming off the grill in our backyard these days, too.

    Probably gonna be a Mel's Diner burger. Bet I could have one delivered, so I wouldn't have to wait.

    Just ate dinner and now I want a burger.

    Outside of burgers there are several restaurants I/we will patronize really, really quickly.
    We have a great loving community in the V.I. and will go out to help out friends/neighbors that were here for us after storms like Hugo, Maryland, Georges, Lenny, & the nasty double punch of Irma & Maria (IrMaria)
    I can think of a dozen places I would go to on day 1.
