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 […]

Clocked! Diner – Athens, GA

We were heading up to the fabulous North Georgia Folk Festival, above Athens and stopped downtown, for a little pre-festival shopping and lunch at Clocked! Diner.  They declare their ideology very clearly:   We proudly use organic, local and natural ingredients, free of chemical fertilizers, antibiotics, growth hormones, synthetic herbicides and pesticides, ammonia and other additives. All […]

The Stand – Phoenix, AZ

Coming into Arizona from the east coast during the 8 months or so when they’re on Pacific time, always makes eating a challenge.  By the time we landed, got a car and were on the road, it was both time for dinner (6:30 locally) and time for bed (9:30 at home).  I made the executive […]

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 […]

Bocado – Atlanta, GA

More than six years after our first visit to Bocado, I finally return with the specific purpose of blogging about it.  Located at the corner of Howell Mill and Marietta Street, this is the first place that I remember the valet taking my car and asking me to move so he could back into a parking […]

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers – Duluth, GA

There’s always excitement when something new opens around the office.  It provides an opportunity to expand our rotation and, sometimes, to try some place new.  Or just some place that is “new to the area”.  I ate at mt first Freddy’s Steakburgers in Wichita (you can find that blog post here) and when I saw […]

The Earl – Atlanta, GA

On this Saturday, heading across the city, I was craving a burger.  We had not been to the Earl, in close to ten years,.  In fact, we had not been since the WSJ article that proclaimed the glory of Atlanta burgers, crowning the Ghetto Burger at Ann’s Snack Bar the best in the country.  Our […]

C F Penn Hamburgers – Decatur, AL

While wandering the town of Decatur, AL, waiting for lunch, we were killing time and I found a music store. I drove past it and parallel parked around the corner. As we were getting out of the car, I saw we were parked directly across from CF Penn Hamburgers.   Of course, I was intrigued. […]

OK Cafe – Atlanta, GA

I’ve eaten at OK Cafe several times, over the years, most often for breakfast.  Back in January of 2015, Atlanta Magazine named their burger as one of the top twenty in the city and I felt compelled to try one.   By the time the article came out, they had experienced a fire (in December […]
