There may be pics available on the BBQ--West Tenn Glee Club forum---maybe we can get some one to post them here.


Tiki: There is a pic on the Tennessee Glee Club BBQ thread showing the both of us with a burger plus a pic of the cook. "The Mayor is kicking my rear end for trying one but since I read about the place, I had to try one. I sorta figured that since it was fried at close to 400F, it would be pretty sterile.

I have to put in my vote for the In n Out in Gainesville, Fl. Note: this is NOT the chain from out west. I think the only one left is on Hawthorne rd in Gainesville but that one may bit the dust by now. At one time they had 2 or 3 locations in Gainesville in the 70's, the two older locations, one on Hawthorne and close to downtown were strictly drive thru and walkup. Something about those burgers just did it for me. Haven't been in Gainesville for a few years but will be going there in April. Hope the old In n Out is still around.

Charlie.

There is or used to be another one of a kind burger place in Gainesville called "Louie's" or maybe "Louie's Lunch". I think their claim to fame was some kind of hot sauce on the burgers. I'm not real familar with them though I ate there a couple of time.

As long as your talking about Unique places to eat Burgers, of course I have to mention my own (Schnack in Brooklyn) but I think the Rutt Hutt In Clifton, despite all their hot dog claims to fame, makes an interesting burgers "DIPPED", that is with Gravy! You have to ask for the Gravy but it's worth it and it truly makes the burger stand out.

TJ, read my post again. This is NOT a chain, this is not part of the chain in Iowa, this is Roadfood. RT 127 is a great road with lots of interesting places along the way to Greenville. The Maid-Rite has been in business at least 65 years and I'm sure even longer than that.


Actually, the restaurant is located a distance off of US 127 . It is at 125 N. Broadway (OH 49/118) northwest of the traffic circle north of downtown Greenville where OH 49, OH 118, OH 121, OH 502, and OH 571 converge (for the record OH 118 and 502 end there, plus Business US 127 is signed here, too--have I confused anyone yet???). Just go north on OH 49 and OH 118 and forget everything I said about the other four numbers.

Oh, and take OH 571 west from the US 36 east exit along US 127, it will become Martin St., take a 45-degree turn right onto North Broadway, go through the traffic circle (don't change direction), and it will be in your sights.

Back in my early youth, I used to visit the Hollywood area of LA quite a bit. A friend of mine would alway insist we go to a place called Hamburger Hamlet. They had unique burgers with things like blue cheese and avocado on them (unique for 1976). They also made an incredibly good (at least as I remember it) Lobster bisque. . . it wasn't cheap, but I was young and on an expense account so who cared! I saw Tony Curtis there once.
A few years later I was walking and passed a Hamburger Hamlet in Georgetown outside DC., but was unable to stop.
Anybody recall?

I'm pretty sure the Hamburger Hamlets on Wisconsin Avenue in Bethesda and on Old Georgetown Road in Rockville/Potomac are still open. Not sure about Georgetown.

One of my favorites when in LA is the Apple Pan on Pico. This is their Hickory Burger with the perfect companion - cold milk.

A One-of-a-Kind Burger Joint is certainly Bob's Bar in Martinsburg, Nebraska (population 90). An 18-ounce-hand-packed Iowa beef burger with all the fixins is $2.65 (with cheese). One order of French fries will feed four easily. One order is $2.65...........they're stuck on that number in Nebraska.

Stern's review of WALL's Drive-In in Cannelton, Indiana is a classic example of the One-Shot Operation. Sitting right beside the foot of the bridge to Kentucky, it sticks out brightly to attract visitors looking for something better than the usual FF availble downtown.
Our only complaint is that the only time we go past the place we are on our way to, or coming home from Owensboro and a Barbecue Stop !!

I made a point of stopping there based on the review - great vintage roadside place, and the way it's kept up it looks freshly minted, like 40+ years didn't happen. Talked a bit with the proprietor, who is justifiably proud of his operation. By all means, stop in - but don't eat while driving, you'll make a mess. Trust me.

There is a fairly new place her in Nashville called Chet's Classic Car Cafe on Old Lebanon Rd, not far from the airport. They make all their burgers fresh. They even have a sign letting everyone know they are not fast food and it will take a little longer. It is definitely worth the wait and noone complains. My favorite is the '55 Classic an excellent bacon cheeseburger. They also make fantastic shakes and offer over 50 flavors.

For those of you who are classic car buffs Chet hosts a cruise-in every weekend. I believe it's on Sunday night. He also has a barber shop just up the street, a man of many talents.
