Ssam Burger – Atlanta, GA

Several months back, there was an article on Eater.com about interesting burgers in Atlanta.  Ssam Burger, on Defoors Ferry popped up.   I had not heard about it, but with our love of the Korean / taco fusion at Hankook, why wouldn’t we like a Korean / burger place? Located in a strip center, next […]

South 21 – Charlotte, NC

Going back to the original Hamburger America list, as we were driving through Charlotte this evening we swung into South 21 for a quick dinner.  “Swung in” is a bit of an understatement as it involved an exit, a u-turn and a return onto a divided six-lane highway, but you get the idea.   They’ve […]

Seven Lamps – Atlanta, GA

Back in 2013, eater.com put together a list of the “25 Hottest Burgers in America and the “secret burger” at Seven Lamps (a newcomer, at the time, to the Atlanta dining scene) made their list.  I had never heard of the restaurant, but I did add it to my list.  Located in the corner of […]

Cypress Street Pint & Plate – Atlanta, GA

For a change, lately, I know where this referral came from – a friend said that I really needed to try the Sublime doughnut burger at Cypress Street Pint and Plate, and I wrote it down.  I wrote it down a year (or two) ago.  Today, as we were heading in town for lunch, it […]

 Elder Tree Public House – Atlanta, GA

Somewhere along the way, either someone told me or I read somewhere how good the hamburgers were at Elder Tree Public House and I put it on the list.  For the life of me, I can’t remember who told me or where I saw it… When we went to the Earl a couple of months […]
