Fatty Fat Burger trip anyone?
What states do we go through on the Trace & what to do?
Located close to Vanderbilt University, Rotier's is famous for its cheeseburger on toasty French bread. According to Food Network, who hailed Rotier's as having Tennessee's best burger, the secret of the flavor is in the 64-year-old flat top grill.
Alabama: Chez Fonfon
Chez Fonfon — a fancy name for a fancy restaurant. The Birmingham bistro is better known for its French cuisine, but it's widely regarded as the home of the best burger in Alabama. The "Hamburger Fonfon" comes with comté cheese and pommes frites.
Mississippi: LATHAM's Hamburger Inn
LATHAM'S Hamburger Inn in New Albany serves the Southern dough burger, a patty with flour mixed into the meat that is then fried on a cast-iron skillet for extra crunch.
Other burgers of note:
Michigan: Laura's Little Burger Joint
The burgers at Laura's Little Burger Joint in Decatur are anything but little. Ranking No. 1 on MLive's list of the best burgers in Michigan, the Chapman Burger is seven ounces of beef that's grilled and topped with pepper-jack cheese, bacon, and grilled onions.
Tolly-Ho has been providing Lexington with simple yet delicious burgers and shakes since 1971. Its signature burger, the Tolly-Ho, is served on a toasted sesame-seed bun and topped with its housemade secret "Ho" sauce.
Louisiana: Company Burger
Company Burger was called the best burger joint in New Orleans by Gambit's Best of New Orleans two years running. Its winning menu item is THE Company Burger, a classic rendition of the all-American double hamburger with American cheese, homemade pickles, and red onion.
Indiana: Workingman's Friend
Workingman's Friend in Indianapolis is renowned for its crispy-edged "smashed" double burgers. Though they're flatter than your typical burger and pack an impressive crunch from the grill oil, these burgers maintain a surprising amount of satisfying juiciness.
