Here in Nashville, we might think we have a good selection of places to get a good burger, from Fat Mo’s to the new and trendy burger joints like Farm Burger and FLIP burger boutique on Charlotte Avenue.
But according to Food & Wine magazine, we’ll have to drive to Memphis to get the tastiest burger in the U.S.
Hog & Hominy in Memphis topped the magazine’s recent list of restaurants with the best burgers in the country. Its signature burger is the John T. Burger. The magazine notes, “Andy Ticer and Michael Hudman (F&W Best New Chefs 2013) pay tribute to food writer and Southern Foodways Alliance Director John T. Edge with this Oklahoma City-style patty that’s smashed and griddled with onions. A genius touch: the shredded lettuce dressed in salt and pickle juice.”
Another Memphis restaurant came in at No. 18 on the list. Dyer’s Burgers burger was recognized for its cheeseburger. No Nashville restaurants made the list. A total of 30 burgers were honored.
