Lunchbox Lab is not the best burger spot in town. But we like it for a couple of reasons - the school cafeteria theme makes it great for kids, and the spiked milkshakes make it great for adults with kids. And if there aren’t any children in your life, sometimes all you need after a long day at work is sitting at the bar completely alone, eating a BBQ burger with onion rings and chipotle cream cheese alongside some mac and cheese topped with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.
