WIAW: Cheeseburger LOVE

August 17, 2011

This WIAW I have dedicated to my 2 favorite burgers I’ve had in the past week. Yes you heard right 2 burgers 1 week. I love them! Oh, and I had ice cream for dessert after too, so there(tongue sticking out)!

I love cheeseburgers! Beef, turkey, veggie, it doesn’t matter. If it’s in the form of a burger I will eat it(organic meat only please;).

There’s something so American and comforting about enjoying a cheeseburger with friends either in someone’s backyard or in your favorite greasy spoon.

I like the plain ole condiments like mayo, mustard, and ketchup, but I love to get chili, slaw, or something non traditional too. When I do get something nontraditional I want to eat it in an unpretentious setting. I don’t want to eat in a “burger boutique”(unless I”m not paying, then it’s fine;). I want my server to have a tattoo or piercing and not be annoyed they’re working because they love burgers too.

Dixie style from Grindhouse ATL

I prefer to have my burger meat grinded on the spot with local beef or turkey and if I’m getting a veggie patty I don’t want it to be frozen from a box I could have got myself. I want it made in-house.

As for my side if they have sweet potato fries I’ll go straight for those. Usually places don’t, so I get tots then fries if there isn’t any other choice that doesn’t cost $3 extra. Never a side salad. If I eat a burger with you and you order a side salad I will get up and leave you with the bill. That’s just crazy!

My dad makes the best burger in the WORLD in my opinion. They are “Ted burgers” and I wish you could have one. They are made with love and a pat of butter in between two all beef patties. MMMMMM…. But since I’m in ATL I will settle on what we have here which isn’t all that bad;)

Cheeseburger from Vortex Little 5 ATL

My favorite place to get a burger in ATL is Grindhouse Killer Burgers. The Sweet Auburn location is my favorite because it’s a diner counter in a farmer’s market, but the Piedmont location has the “Dixie Style” which has pimento cheese. It’s very tense for me when deciding where to go. haha

Where/How do you like your burgers?

I heard they are selling the Auburn location… not sure when. I may have seen it in Creative Loafing…

Have you tried Bocado or Holeman & Finch? Mid-blowing burgers. I kid you not. :)

I just read that too, bummer. I’ve heard mixed reviews about Holeman & Finch, but need to try them myself.

I love cheeseburgers. One of the few things I can eat over and over and over again.

I actually like to get my cheeseburgers kind of AS a salad… I.e. Lettuce wrapped instead of sandwiched between boring white bread.

I mean if the bread is something special then okay… But just regular bread? Pointless. I wanna taste the ketchup, juicy burger and gooey cheese.

Also? It is ALL about the garlic fries. Although recently I had some sweet potato fried with a basil aioli that was just… Absolutely killer…

Garlic fries are awesome!

I am pretty boring. I love just bun, patty and ketchup to which my husband thinks is nasty! ha!

As of yesterday since it was my first time to go there, I am a big fan of Yeah Burger. I got a turkey burger there and it was delicious!
