Hudson's Hamburgers (Cda)
207 E Sherman Ave
Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814
Quite possibly one of the best burgers of all time. It's worth the wait for one of the just 17 chrome stools at the formica counter. Hudsons has been a Cda tradition for almost 100 years. That should really say it all. The menu is short and steady yourself - there are no fries! But just ask any local and they don't care about the fries, because at Hudsons, it's all about the burger and the pie. The secret - the owners says its the beef supplier but after 100 years, the Hudson family knows a thing or two about how to cook a burger.
