Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar – Smyrna, GA

I’ve driven by Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar several times in the last year.  They’re at the corner of Atlanta and Spring roads in the Jonquil Center in Smyrna.  On this Saturday, as we were roaming about, we ended up in that area around the time for a late lunch.  It was a rainy afternoon, so […]

Peg Leg Porker – Nashville, TN

The Bringles had been catering barbecue for about five years when they opened Peg Leg Porker, in the Gulch area of Nashville, back in 2013. On the last several trips to Nashville, I have had them on my list, but we hadn’t had the chance to swing by for a meal (pressing hot chicken needs, […]

Doe’s Eat Place – Greenville, MS

Walking in the screened front door of Doe’s Eat Place, we immediately assumed we had made a mistake – we were standing in the kitchen, right next to the grill.  We asked and they waved us through to the second kitchen – where the salads, toast and fries were made – and a lady asked […]

Dyer’s Burgers – Memphis, TN

Dyer’s Burgers has been on my list since the beginning of the predecessor to this blog – arising out of my fascination with the first edition of George Motz’s Hamburger America (I’ve just ordered the third version, which was published earlier this year and will be in the mailbox when we get back from this […]
