BIG burgers in TN/GA?

  • j

I frequently travel between Atlanta and Knoxville, and, being the burger fan that I am, I often seek out burgers along the way. The best that I have found is the 'Super Burger' at a little dump called Kamil's in Knoxville. The one-pound, oval-shaped patty is no match for the puny bun, and hangs off on all sides. Mmmmmmmmmm. Does anyone have any suggestions for a big, tasty burger in, or in between these two cities?

  1. There's a burger place in Rossville, GA, just south of Chattanooga, called Roy's. While their burgers are not big, they're certainly good. A wonderful scene too: vintage diner, bathroom reached through the kitchen, that sort of thing. I believe it was one of the early Krystal locations but has since reverted to non-chain status. Burgers are a far cry better than Krystal.
