Burgers with Buck: Henry's Louisiana Grill

Serving Cajun and Creole classics for 18 years, you probably know Henry’s Louisiana Grill in Acworth. The question is, have you ever had the burger?

Granted, it’s tough to go to Henry’s and not order Red Beans and Rice, Etouffee, or Jambalaya, but if you find yourself there, and in the mood for a burger, he’s got you covered.

The Cheyenne Burger starts with an eight-ounce patty that is a grind of brisket, short rib, and chuck.  It is topped with bourbon onions, chipotle BBQ sauce, smoked gouda, and a big ‘ole onion ring (or two). It is a nice blend of sweet and savory with just a subtle hint of heat.

So why, at a restaurant known for Cajun fare, is a burger named Cheyenne? Of course, there’s a story behind it.

Cheyenne Bodie was a television western in the 1950’s, named after the main character, cowboy Cheyenne Bodie. Apparently, Henry’s dad was a huge fan of the show, and he nicknamed his young son, Bodie. Well the name stuck, and as a tribute to his dad and the show, he named his signature burger, Cheyenne. In other words, next time you go to Henry’s to eat, make sure you refer to the always affable Henry, as Bodie.

Also, congratulations to Henry who will soon be marking 10 years since his liver transplant. If you know Henry, you know his 10th Liverversary celebration will be a big party. Make sure you click on the link below to find out the details.
