Goner Message Board / Memphis / Best cheeseburger in Memphis
Posted: Dec 20, 2010 2:21 pm
 
Dont say Hueys. Maybe this belongs in the Food and Drink thread. Maybe there is a thread there already.

Of course the soul burger. And the cheeseburger from the corner store on Eparkway and central that burned down. My new favorite is from Allstars Jumbo Cheesesteaks on N. Cleveland. Whats some freak nasty shit offered on burgers here? Sketchy location/meat is a plus. Discuss.

alex's tavern at about 5 am
their burgers really are the tits!
Posted: Dec 20, 2010 4:33 pm
 
yep. Soul Burger.
love a Belmont Burger add the kitchen sink.
Tops makes a great one too.
of course, the Hi-Tone's doesn't suck either.....
Posted: Dec 20, 2010 4:36 pm
 
Tops is my favorite. Cheeseburger with mayo and onions. Cures anything.

I'm partial to the burgers at Murphy's. Nothing fancy, but good meat, and the price is right. Go on Saturday afternoon when Candice is working.
Posted: Dec 20, 2010 6:51 pm | Edited by: memoryman
 
Shit, just realized Candice doesn't work @ Murphs anymore. Disregard that part. Still good eats.

Patty melts count too. Adding hashbrowns to the CKs patty melt rules. I'll have to try the Tops burger.Gotta be more!
Posted: Dec 21, 2010 2:04 pm
 
Soul Burger - be careful, i used to be the butcher at the place that sold EH their meat. I would describe the rankness that goes into that burger but dont wana vomit on the computer.

Tops - rules

Hitone - really the best in town as long as Youngblood is on the grill

unnamed deli across from easyway on Main St. - good burger, I think its some style brought down from yankeeland but they throw pot roast on the burger patty. worth trying.

The Local on Main street served up a weak ass burger. The regular dressings were included, BUT the bun was a huge dinner roll cut in half and was sweet, like those honey rolls or something. The handcut fries were great but man cannot live on fries alone.

Believe it or not, while their "Mexican" food is definitely lacking, Molly's La Casita has a damn fine burger. It's got pico de gallo on it. Pro tip: Ask them to put the fajita seasoning on the fries.
Posted: Dec 28, 2010 11:08 am
 
Agreed about the Mexican food at Molly's. Will definitely try the burger though. More pro tips encouraged!

Joeys on Main or three little pigs today..will report soon.

Fast food burger is a separate category. Best fast food burger is Sonic!
Posted: Jan 3, 2011 1:22 pm
 
agree with Scott on this one, Sonic is the best fast food burger. Not that Tops takes very long at all, but quality wise its really the same shit. Better flavor etc. at Tops! Glad nobodys been ridin the Hueys train on this topic. Last one I had was some dried out, flavorless bullshit!

as a relatively newbie memphian, I simply do not understand the Huey's hype. Their fries aren't even that awesome either.

hitone burger is amazing. They are seasoned/cooked like the burgers my mother makes, and that makes me very happy.

even though cafe society on evergreen and poplar is a den of yuppie decadence, they have a real great burger and spectacular (in quantity and quality) thin-cut fries.

How are Danver's' burgers these days?

Used to be my fast food favorite as a kid but haven't back to try one since the early '90s.

I already know a lot of old people go there on Sundays. Just wondering about the burgers.

Elliot's! V tore up a cheeseburger there today. I had a double bacon cheese that was about 6" high. It was huuuge. And awesome. And a dude that buses in there has an eye patch. It's like having Slick Rick refill your tea.

Brookhaven Burger

What a garbage dump of a burger from the bar that has a signed picture of Cannon Smith hanging up for all to see (WOOF)

Includes special dipping sauce "brookhaven sauce" duh, that tasted more like arby's sauce than vinegar, but only slightly.

I hate to say it, but 3 Angels Diner has a pretty fucking awesome burger. I usually don't care for a gourmet burger. Usually I would prefer one from the Lamplighter, but this one was pre-tty, pre-tty, good.

inedible how? that sounds fucked up.

How do people eat in smoke filled bars? Whenever I'm drunk enough to go to Side Street I'll always see someone eating like a pasta dish or something. Theres always so much smoke in there its like the place is gonna burn down again! HA! YES!

Lot-A-Burger is good but insane with grease. Like even more than Dyers.

I've gotta try South Memphis Grocery (aka Fatburger) at Mallory and Florida later this week. Office folks talking it up a lot.
Posted: Apr 20, 2011 5:51 pm
 
Holy Crap.. how did I miss this thread?
Without a doubt. Hands down.. the best cheeseburger in Memphis is at
Cafe 1912 -- the bacon and bluecheese burger. Its more expensive than most of the places, but Damn, its good. I've tried to replicate it at other restaurants by ordering a burger on sourdough with bacon and bluecheese crumbles, but its not the same. Wash it down with a Duvel.

Mary doesn't like bluecheese, so she gets the other cheeseburger, and she likes it just as much. Damn, that burger wins. Its also the cheapest thing on the menu.
Posted: Apr 20, 2011 5:59 pm
 
I second the Bing burger @ Caritas. Anybody try the new place on Madison - Burly's?
Posted: Apr 20, 2011 9:03 pm
 
5 Guys Burger opening soon on Poplar Pike. Just today was rated the best burger in the country. We'll see.

its pretty good, but not off the charts

Burleys wasn't that great. The onion straws weren't fried, plus they were out of ice cream for shakes. How are you out of ice cream at 3pm on a Tuesday?

Tops has my favorite burger in Memphis. It cheers me up on days I don't wanna be in Memphis.

so, you eat at tops every day?
Posted: Apr 20, 2011 10:45 pm
 
I tried Burly's a couple days after it opened. There was something wrong and funky about it, like it was a bad burger imitating a good one. Dell's Food Xpress had just about the same awful flavor issue. They may have been the exact same burger/meat source, wouldn't surprise me.

Maybe they've fixed some things, because people at work like them, who knows.

Also, if you're ever out in Oxford, Boure (just off the Square) has incredible burgers. Style-wise the place feels too ritzy for it's own good (it is the City Grocery dude's version of a pub after all), but damn if the guy doesn't do good food. The big challenge is the Double Bacon Cheddar Burger - one pound of disgusting gluttony that you'll probably have to carve up.

This is a universal truth about all burgers.
Posted: Apr 22, 2011 1:03 pm
 
Okay, did the South Memphis Grocery/Fatburger thing. It was good, a little crispy and HUGE for the price. They actually reminded me of Tops burgers a bit, with a little bit more grease and meat, but with a little less pepper. Seasoned fries are okay, but they give you a ton of them.

Also they're one of the only places I know of that you can get 69 cent cans of Double Cola, which is one of the best Pepsi knockoffs out there. Lots of people also swear by their tamales.

Yeah, they raised their prices up a bit a few months ago.

Fuel does have a Bison burger as well as some great bison chili. I had one when they first opened and it was pretty dang great. The only problem is that the burger is $12 now.

I didn't get hassled, but then again I didn't stick around after I got my food. It wasn't the worst environment that I've ever bought a burger in.

Also I tried the All Stars on N. Cleveland burger earlier this week, and that was awesome as advertised.

was at the intersection of frayser blvd and watkins?

New suburban contender: Hubba Bubba's in Southaven on Hwy 51 north of Rasco Rd.

Big juicy patty that's super delicious, especially with their in-house BBQ sauce (had to try it since I heard good things about the BBQ from family). Also tasty dirty seasoned fries.
Posted: Jun 28, 2011 10:55 am
 
Tried that Burly's place.

It was pretty tasty.
Posted: Jun 29, 2011 1:48 pm
 
Hubba Bubba sounds cool.
Posted: Jul 5, 2011 11:55 am
 
Gave Burly's a shot this weekend. I thought it was pretty tasty, although I'm not a huge fan of the thick Angus burgers. They cooked it just a hair past what I would have liked, but the bacon made up for that.

One of my dinner companions was regaling us with stories of crazy shit that used to happen in that space. Glad I didn't find out about the severed deer parts incident until after I ate.

Hot dog at Five Guys is wonderful. It's a hot dog, not a damn sausage. Grilled, split, and dressed to order. Did not like the fries much. Burger was greasy and messy and declared delicious by the guy I had lunch with.
Posted: Jul 9, 2011 10:50 pm | Edited by: jason smuckles
 
Burly's got a second chance today. I guess I'm one of their fans now too.

I talked to the guy there, and how he put it, they didn't really have a handle on the recipe in the first week - they'd mix 100 lbs of meat with seasoning, so there'd be a lot of unseasoned burgers and a lot of burgers that were too overloaded. So what they did was drop it to 20 lb mixes. The seasoning was a lot more bearable this time. The fries were a lot better too.

Wow. I disagreed with every single review. He loved what I hated, he scorned what I enjoyed. Maybe simplistic, but I see two major types of burger - thich and juicy (Belmont) and thin (Tops, Ubees).

Next time you find yourself at Huey's check out their sliders, the Little Miner's Trio. I've had them a few times and they are juicy little flavor bombs. Better than the full-size burgers in my opinion. Now if we could only get them to make decent fries or onion rings that aren't ridiculously huge.

They now have these "onion straws" that are decent. Very thinly sliced and fried up well. They come with a remoulade-type sauce ...

No. Wrong. Those are disgusting, like solidified onion salt.

First flame blog comment received. Do you moderate comments b4 the go live or let them roll?

Just a tool pointing out a typo and and telling my that I suck.

I think it's probably a jealous Memphian, sad they didn't have the idea I had first.

I just don't see the point of giving flamers a platform. There is no conversation.

Do not let this man judge your food for you.

So, in his post about the Kwik Shop, did the memphis best burger guy say "Convenient" store? Because, if that is the case, he went back to the post and changed each instance to say "convenience".

^hahhahaha.

The guy is like 45 years old and just now set his foot in Ernestine & Hazels for the first time to try a soulburger. Judging by his twitter comments it's like he went into another world.

He may have fixed the typo, but he still sucks.

I gotta say my last 2 burgers at RP Tracks were pretty kick ass...got the "smokehouse" (although I '86 the smoked gouda and replace it with cheddar, the fake smoke flavoring kinda fucks things up) and add bacon. They do a great medium rare (fully pink with a smidgen of blood in the center) and the sauteed mushrooms are tasty. However, with it being medium rare with the mushrooms makes it one messy-ass burger...so I dont think our delicate flower of a burger blogger would like it.

Let's not be too hard on him. After eating Huey's for years and thinking it was the best in Memphis he accidentally branched out and tried a non-chain restaurant burger once. Now he's a professional on all things bovine-related.

Shelby Forest General Store- great breakfast, too.

Fuck that burger blog bullshit. My thread is the original.

I went to a badass burger place in Nashville but i forgot what it was called last month. Definitely top 5 I've had. University of Memphis food stations have these little cheeseburgers in plastic that are like cafeteria throwbacks, but you have to eat at least three.

Dumbest thread EVER

Been to Stuffy's five or so times. Pretty good. Big bun, soaks up any liquid. Doesn't seem to be a choice of "done" - medium well is the standard. Cash or credit. Sometimes there is a line, sometimes there isn't. Fries are hit or miss.

Three Little Pigs was the worst burger I've had that wasn't from Burger King. They gave me what I ordered, but it sucked. Thin patty, no grease. Tasted like freshly unfrozen beef that probably comes with sheets of freezer paper between the patties.

I've had a couple there, and they've always been good; I'm sorry your experience was different!

Went to 5 guys last week...way over rated and expensive...loud Rock 103 type music blaring...the fries were grease bombs...won't go back.

Jeff, I've been to the 5 Guys in Memphis twice, and both times were bad.

I've been to other locations in other cities that were good.

All Stars next to the Piggy Wiggly on Perkins at Knight-Arnold. Killer and huge.
