Even though the main street (Chestnut near the Sounds stadium) to Gabby’s Burgers and Fries has been closed for construction, loyal customers managed to find their way to  the burger joint (493 Humphrey St., map here).  I got there today a bit before noon, and the place was packed.

There are no bones about it.  They make a good burger, at a good price ($6.77 for a cheeseburger and fries, tax included), and pride themselves on friendly service.  To top it all off, all the beef is grass-fed.  (They also have homemade veggie burgers and other options on their menu.)  Customers seem to like the sweet potato fries, which I’ll try next time.  The regular fries I had were seasoned quite nicely.

Road construction on Chestnut won’t end ’til June, but don’t wait that long to get a Gabby burger.  Carrington Fox from the Scene’s Bites blog advises:

When you see the big orange detour signs on Chestnut, keep following them. Eventually you’ll see temporary signage directing you to Gabby’s, and when you get there, you’ll be glad you persevered.  (Full entry can be seen here.)

Customers, reviewer, and reviewer are right: the simplicity of the food and space is genius.
