Good Stuff Eatery lately?

I'm thinking about trying Good Stuff on the Hill for lunch tomorrow and was wondering how crowded it's been lately? I know it's been crazy hyped, but I really just want something different for lunch and to try one of those toasted marshmallow shakes. Also, for those who have been, what are the best burgers to order?

  1. Spike's 5-napkin burger, while completely over-the-top, is outstanding. The fries were great as well, but I don't think the shake was as good as advertised - tasted a bit artificial (might have something to do with the fact that marshmallows are inherently artificial.) I can't speak to the lunchtime crowds as I've only been for a late night snack.

      I loved the toasted marshmallow shake.


      And for what it's worth, the veggie burger was really good.

    2. What about that bahn mi-esque burger? That is the one that sounds interesting to me since I think the best burger these days is Ray's.

      1. I went to Good Stuff for the first time today. It was way better than I thought it would be. I ordered the Coletti Smokehouse burger (bacon, cheese, onion rings, and BBQ sauce). The line too about 15 minutes, but it was well managed. Dare I say that I think Good Stuff is better than Rays Hell Burger...

          1. I went on Wednesday. I had the Blazing Barn burger, which is the one with the pickled carrots and daikon like a bahn mi. I shared fries and a toasted marshmallow shake with my lunch companion. She had the veggie burger which honestly, did not look very good. My burger was good, but not great. The shake was tasty, and the fries dipped in the sriacha mayo were pretty tasty.

            Overall, I thought it was good, but not great. I definitely think Ray's is better, and as a bonus, I don't have to watch people try to get a brush with fame by chatting up Spike.
