While we were in Bolivia, Ferguson’s new Maid-Rite opened. It’s in the space where O.T. Hodge used to be. I miss the Hodge, but I was eager to check out the new place with its loose ground beef burgers. It’s the first Maid-Rite franchise in the St. Louis area.
I wasn’t sure if I’d like it. I’m not a huge sloppy joe fan. But Maid-Rite isn’t a sloppy joe. It’s a loose, crumbly seasoned ground beef, but without sauce (unless you order a specialty one with BBQ or something like that).
I bought the $8 Bacon Cheese-Rite basket. Basically you get the sandwich, fries, and a drink. The food was excellent. I really enjoyed the sandwich, and the fries were perfect.
A little bit pricey for my taste, but I bet we’ll take the kids every once in a while. They have corn dogs and other stuff which will be perfect. Jadzia can scarf corn dogs down like there’s no tomorrow.
Since Yoli still has our digital camera down in Bolivia, I didn’t take any photos of the inside. But the Maid-Rite website already has a bunch of photos of the Ferguson location here
