Food Porn: Hudson’s Hamburgers

This photo of Linda Lantzy's at Idaho Scenic Images isn't exactly Food Porn because you don't see a Hudson hamburger in the photo. But I bet it makes your mouth water.

Question: When did you last eat at Hudson's?

Jack & Ronan Eat 1st Hudson Burger

On Mike Kennedy’s Facebook page, Mike posts that his kids, Ronan and Jack are about to experience a Coeur d’Alene right of passage — eating their first hamburger at Hudson’s. Do you think Ronan, 1, and Jack, 3, will ask for fries?

Question: Can you remember the first time you ate a hamburger at Hudson’s?

Hudson’s Hamburgers — Looking Back

I found this on the We Love CDA Facebook site — all the things you need to know to discuss Hudson’s Hamburgers intelligently:

Hudson’s Ranks Among USA Best

USA Today challenged experts to name the best hamburger places in the country — one from each state. Hudson’s Hamburgers on Sherman Avenue, of course, was selected as the best in Idaho (upon the recommendation of Jane & Michael Stern, You can read the full list here. What USA Today said about Hudson’s follows: “Hudson’s in Coeur d’Alene is a counter-only diner that serves nothing but hamburgers. Singles or doubles are hand-formed and cooked to supreme juiciness, then topped with just-sliced pickle disks and hoops of onion and homemade hot sauce. It all happens at warp speed an open-kitchen show that patrons have been enjoying since 1907.” (SR file photo by Kathy Plonka: Customers belly up to the counter at Hudson’s Hamburgers)

Question: Anyone out there surprised at the pick?

Hudson’s Not On ‘Diners, Drive-ins & Dives’

Many of you already know that it was recently confirmed that host Guy Fieri and crew will be cruising into the Spokane/Coeur d’Alene area some time in August. I’ve heard that Spokane reastaurants will be the main  focus of the show, but that they will be crossing the state line to Idaho to do a shoot at just one location. The mystery at this point is which eatery will be lucky enough to get the Food Network spotlight from the spiky-haired kind of Flavortown. I’ve spoken with a Hudson’s Hamburgers employee who told me that despite several years of wooing and begging from the producers of the show, Hudson’s will not be featured due to the fact that they wanted the 101-year-old burger mecca to cough up the “secret” recipes for their famous spicy ketchup and mustard. Well, the nerve/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here. (OTV suspects Cataldo’s Mission Inn, pictured, may be featured)

Question: Which North Idaho eatery/eateries should be featured on “Diners, Drive-ins, & Dives”?
