My family and I went skiing up in the Coeur d'Alene area last winter and one day while taking a break from the slopes we decided to visit downtown. We were in the little shopping mall across the street from Hudson's, unbeknownst to me! We walked out of the mall and that picture from across the street says it all... I could see "BURGERS Since 1907", had no idea what it was. I told my wife, anyone who has been making hamburgers for 100 years is making one DANG good burger!
And I am very happy to say, I was not disappointed. I loved it so much, I had to make a special trip BACK to Hudson's just for another burger before leaving town. The melted cheese, spicy ketchup and mustard are all this burger needs. Oh, except the extra napkins! I try my best to emulate that burger at home and have come close, but it's still not the same. If you are ever in Coeur d'Alene, you must visit Hudson's!
