An AMAZING Place to Eat!

The praise for a GOOD burger never ends at Tookies.

The Galloping Foodie loves date night in his old stomping grounds.

 May 2012 Review

It was one of those weekends; the Boss was bored, and hungry.

I told her that I would take her out to eat and she jumped on that suggestion like a tick on a hound dog. Within twenty minutes she was showered, dressed and ready to go. I had heard on face book that Tookie’s in Seabrook had reopened, and I wanted to see if they were still as good as they were in the past.

The food was just as great as I remembered.

I ordered the ½ pound bean burger. It’s a half pound burger on a base of refried beans with crushed Fritos and dressed with Pace Picante Sauce, cheddar cheese and sautéed onions – all on a sesame seed bun. You can get the single half pound patty or a double with two half pound patties. It’s so large that you can’t really pick it up to eat it or risk getting all over you, so I ate mine with a knife and fork. It was excellent!

The Boss ordered the Squealer burger. It’s a half pound certified Angus beef patty blended with bacon and dressed with mayo, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onion. The Boss said that her hamburger was awesome, and that is high praise coming from her, because she’s pretty picky. She also ordered a combination order of French fries and onion rings. They are excellent and handmade. I ate a few so I could express my opinion, but I was stuffed!

This iconic eatery had to be restored after Hurricane Ike damaged it, and the Boss says that the bathrooms are all brand new, clean, and roomy. They managed to retain a lot of the original décor from before the storm so old customers will recognize the place.

They do have one new thing though, they now serve mixed drinks in the place. I believe this is something new, because I don’t remember them doing that before. I’m pretty sure my high school classmates would have shown me there fake ID’s if they could drink beer at Tookie’s back in the day.

This restaurant has many fond memories for me, and I can recommend it to my readers without any hesitation. The food is great, the amenities’ superior, and the price affordable.

Till next time eat out often, eat well, and please support the small business people when you select where you want to eat. Demand good food, and fair prices. It’s your money and you should get what you pay for each and every time.
