    Looks like I might have to take a Road trip to check out Poe's... 3 hours and a nice drive up and down the coast sounds like a plan in the next few weeks.
    I will have an extra day off soon and will catch up on my scouting for Q and make a point to see some more low country.

      May not be the best in the South, but has been voted best in Birmingham a few times. Hamburger Heaven in Irondale. Handmade to order, big beefy meat patties, fresh lettuce, maters and onions and they have a special sauce too. They also have great onion rings and the milkshakes are wonderful! Don't bother going on Sundays, they are closed then. I'm blessed to live right down the hiway from them and love it!

            Looks like a good list. If one has only a day or two, which ones would you suggest? Also, thanks for serving the country and I'm glad you made it back safely.

              Well, I would hit Callahan's..only thing is they don't do fries, but their other sides are pretty good, burger is huge, 1/2lber.....its near the Oakley Garden District, Church Street Cemetary and close to the Museums and such downtown....Heroes is about 3/4 Mile from Callahan's in the Dauphin Street Entertainment District, there's about 4-5 small eclectic Art Galleries near by and famous Three Georges Chocolate shop is accross the street......Lulus is on the Intercoastal Waterway in Gulf Shores.....wacky beach bar that's worth the trip and the music is always good and they have a nice outdoor deck...

                  Sure does seem like it. I guess the Travel Channel has no real clue for good Q.

                      apologies to Calvin, but I haven't really found a great burger in my area of SE Michigan. The one I would have rated the best was taken over by icky frozen preformed patties... And I've never been to Crazy Jim's Blimpy Burgers so I can't judge them. (no parking in perpetually under construction downtown Ann Arbor)

                      But we had some beauts in Wisconsin!

                        The Old Sawmill Cafe in Forrest City, Arkansas. Juicy on the inside, charred crispness on the outside. Then, topped with sawmill gravy.

                        If you have one meal this year, this one'll do.

                            "The Grease Rack" in Newport, Tennessee has the best burgers that I've had the pleasure of eating! Been in business since the early 70's!

                              Ditto on The Brickyard.
