Feed Your Soul: Unexpected flavors at an out of the way place
500 S. Oak St, Oak Ridge
OAK RIDGE, La. (KNOE) - Sometimes, out-of-the-way places have some of the tastiest food. Owner Mike Morgan of New Town Burgers in Oak Ridge knows what he likes.
“Just start off with, I’m very picky about my food when I go somewhere to eat. I want to serve somebody something that I know I would want to eat, and hopefully, we do,” said Morgan.
He and his wife, Tammie, make sure others have the same experience he expects.
It all started with customers wanting a bite to eat at his repair shop.
“For the last few years, my customers over there, they kind of asked me about fixing something up to cook, you know? So that they have something here,” said Morgan. “My wife retired from her job. And we just decided to buy the trailer and do a thing.”
He tried to find some help but is still looking.
“I was hoping I could find some help full time to where I could stay over there,” said Morgan. “I stay over here at about two o’clock every day, then I go over there.”
Customers come here and know they are going to leave full.
One customer commented that he struggled to finish half of a plate.
“I can’t eat it all,” said the customer. “Half a chicken is a little too much for me.”
I was told about the place for the burgers, but it is not the only reason to make the drive.
The chicken is worth the stop. It’s juicy. I am hooked.
Plus, for dessert, they have homemade pecan pie. And it is so good there might be more trips out there.
But whatever he does, it adds to the list of reasons to come back.
So, make a detour to Oak Ridge to visit Mike and Tammie at New Town Burgers, where they will make sure the food is worth the drive and feed your soul.
