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 […]

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 […]

Dino’s Bar – Nashville, TN

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 […]

The Neon Pig – Tupelo, MS

Driving home from “the bluegrass”, after spending the night near Little Rock, we rolled into Tupelo for a late lunch.  As I had nothing in Tupelo on “the list” and nothing in mind, I searched for “best burger” in Tupelo and several links led me to the Neon Pig.  The Neon Pig began in Tupelo […]

Claud’s Hamburgers – Tulsa, OK

On the heels of lunch, just 45 minutes before, we made a quick stop at Claud’s Hamburgers, in Tulsa, as we continued our road trip. Technically – I made a stop, as I was the only one eating at this time.  Claud’s has been serving up burgers since 1954 (in this location since 1965) in […]

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 […]
