If you had to choose between your significant other and a grass-fed burger with a basket of queso fries from Lil’ Woody’s, let’s just say you would need to blast some really, really sad music and start packing your things. Lil’ Woody’s is perfect for a quick lunch or to refuel before a Friday night out - only at the SLU location, you can’t stumble in at 2 a.m for more (since they close at 8). The menu has a solid lineup of classics, plus more creative choices in case you want housemade pickled figs on your burger. You can get a side of milkshake for your handcut fries (they call it “crack” on the streets), and no burger here is a wrong choice.
