Charlie Joseph’s – LaGrange, GA

Heading down to the Middle East (of Alabama), we were rolling down I-85 and realized that we were running out of choices, rapidly, for lunch (if we wanted to eat soon) when I remembered seeing a sign about chili dogs last time we went to Pine Mountain.  Nearing 185, I saw the sign for Charlie […]

Mix’d Up Burgers – Atlanta, GA

Coming back from a few days out of town, we were confronted with “the lunch question”.  Instead of being met with a quizzical look when I asked, there was a definitive response – “How about that place with the great bean burger, that’s drive through only?”  I knew she was talking about Mix’d Up Burgers […]

Chris’ Hot Dogs – Montgomery, AL

I hadn’t heard about Chris’ Hot Dogs until we got to Montgomery.  I was telling someone about the glorious pulley bone at Martin’s, when they asked “Have you been to Chris’?”  A quick search found out that they were a Montgomery institution that I’d never heard of – open since 1917. The next afternoon for […]

Garbo’s Grill – Key West, FL

Stockyard Burgers and Bones – Marietta, GA

As often happens, our dinner at Stockyard Burgers and Bones wasn’t part of the original plan.  It was Christmas Adam (the day before Christmas Eve), and we had dinner reservations elsewhere but, as the menu there changes weekly, when we arrived, nothing jumped out at us.  Or even appealed to us.  We understand that, with […]

Duck’s Trolly – Manchester, GA

While camping in Pine Mountain with some friends, we were out roaming through all the stores in the surrounding towns.  While checking out the Meriwether County visitor center in Warm Springs, I heard someone ask the guide about Duck’s Trolly, in Manchester. “Best burger around,” was the reply.  That did it for me.  When discussions […]

Biscuit Love – Nashville, TN

On a Saturday trip to Nashville, we spent the morning at the flea market (one of the best in the South and worth the trip, IMO) and were looking for lunch.  I had one particular place in mind and found a parking place right across the street.  Only to find a line of 45-50 people […]
