And The Search Continues...

So, with knowing that we'll be moving soon, we've been trying to explore the more unique eateries in our local area as much as we can. Either by online reviews, things mentioned on The Food Network and The Travel Channel, or recommendations by friends...we've been on the hunt. Our list only seems to get longer as time passes so I doubt we'll be able to check them all out, but we'll see how things go...

Well, we decided to try a burger joint this afternoon after seeing something about it on Yelp. People actually compared it to In-N-Out! If it gets a rating like that, it's definitely worth checking out! This particular burger joint was called Van's Burger. The actual building wasn't much to brag about, but the line of cars waiting to order reassured us that we should definitely try it.


Since it's just a small drive-thru only joint, we had planned on just eating our lunch in the car -- with Oba drooling and staring at us the whole time. However, we soon realized they had picnic benches (they were nice and CLEAN!) spread out so you could enjoy your burger while soaking up the nice weather. With it being right on the edge of a golf course, it provided nice scenery and silence. I would almost take this style over going to a busy Red Robin, where it's loud and rowdy...

Anyways...as it turns out, today -- of all days -- was their 10th anniversary of being open. If you said, "Happy Birthday!" before you ordered, all sodas and milkshakes were on the house. Can't beat that! So, of course, we enjoyed our free milkshakes, and let me just say...the burger was great!


Oh, and as a way of making the entire family happy, Van's Burger offers free puppy patties. So, even Obadiah got a little taste of heaven, ha. If we were going to be living here longer, I'm sure we'd definitely be repeat customers.


Here's Obadiah after he consumed his puppy patty...I'm sure he was hoping we'd be generous and share some of ours...


Unfortunately for him, that didn't happen...
