Hudson’s Hamburgers – Couer d’Alene, ID

After driving across Washington state the day before, we rolled into northern Idaho, around lunch time.  One of my friends declares that Couer d’Alene is the prettiest places in this country.  So we headed toward down town and found that he was right. It was an early autumn day and the sun was shining on […]

Hank’s Hamburgers – Tulsa, OK

While we were working our way toward Kansas, we rolled into Tulsa around lunch time and I consulted the list.  One of the spots on there, open for more than 60 years, is Hank’s Hamburgers.  The reference I had, and all the pictures inside, proclaim it as Waylon Jennings’ favorite burger joint. There were several […]

Brook’s Sandwich House – Charlotte, NC

As I’ve stated before, the impetus for this blog began with discovering the first edition of George Motz’s Hamburger America, during a lunch in 2007.  I decided that I’d make it one of my goals to eat as many of the 100 “best hamburgers” in the US, as I could, over the coming years.  The […]

About a month ago, I picked up the third version of George Motz’s “Hamburger America” – the text that started much of my food journey.  I discovered the existence of this tome more than a decade ago, when we were having lunch at Mr. Bartlett’s Burger Cottage, in Cambridge, MA. This book documents George’s journey […]

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 […]

Latham’s Hamburger Inn – New Albany, MS

We actually tried to eat here earlier this month, but it was a Monday when we were driving thru – and they are open from Tuesday – Saturday.  Open for about 90 years, Latham’s Hamburger Inn has been in this location since 1974.  It was then that they moved from across the street, enclosing a […]
