Burgers With Nostalgia on the Side at Lankford Grocery

Burgers With Nostalgia on the Side at Lankford Grocery

For a 73-year-old restaurant, Lankford Grocery is a breath of fresh air. Straddling the quickly gentrifying neighborhoods of Montrose and the Fourth Ward, the tumbledown burger joint in circus hues of red and white has never suffered the crippling mediocrity of an old-timer that's given up on ingenuity. Instead, Lankford has remained curiously current throughout the years, while still dealing in both juicy burgers and nostalgia. PHOTOS BY TROY FIELDS
