BLUE CHEESE BURGERS

I first encountered these burgers about 30 years ago when I lived in New Orleans. There was a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant at the edge of the French Quarter (still there, I believe), called Port Of Call. They had a jukebox that played songs from the 50's and a blue cheese burger to die for! I still love it to this day.
