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 […]

Linda-Mar Drive In – Tulsa, OK

We weren’t leaving Louisiana in the broad daylight, but we were heading home from Winfield and looking for lunch (in all the wrong places?) when we got to Tulsa.  (Note: That’s TWO thinly-veiled 80s country song references in one sentence!)  This placed us at Linda-Mar Drive In (actually across the street in the grocery store […]

Zesto’s of West Columbia – West Columbia, SC

After our visit to Bernie’s and the comments I received, I knew that the next time I was in Columbia, I’d have to try Zesto of West Columbia.  With a business meeting in Columbia in the morning, we stopped at Zesto on the way back to Atlanta.  Originally part of a national chain, dating back […]

George’s Bar & Grill (World Famous Burgers and Insults) – Cathedral City, CA

An unusual blog post in that we ended up not eating here: I found George’s Bar & Grill (World Famous Burgers & Insults) on the Hamburger America app, as we rolled into Palm Springs.  It was 4:45 and the app said they closed at 5:30, so we drove eastward.  I should have taken it as […]

Irv’s Burgers – Los Angeles, CA

Irv’s Burgers is part of the reason that this blog exists, in a weird, convoluted way.  This all started with a visit to Mr. Bartley’s Burger Cottage in Cambridge, where I first heard about Hamburger America.  That was a little over nine years ago.   Like at Mr. Bartley’s, there was a placard on the counter, […]

Illegal Food – Atlanta, GA

We had a meal (or three or four) at Illegal Food back in 2014 and 2015 when they were a popup kitchen at Joystick, but we had not been to their actual location.  Today, when we were in town on a Saturday without plans, I decided it would be “big” burgers for lunch. Off to […]
