Champy’s – Chattanooga, Tennessee

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Alabama, BB Approved, Burger Beast on the Road, Chattanooga, Georgia, Tennessee

We were driving through Chattanooga (mostly to visit Moonpie’s HQ) when Champy’s popped up. The rustic shack look of the restaurant had me in the mood before I had even ordered one thing. I was super excited to find out that Hot Tamales were on the menu, something that my wife Marcela and I came […]

I had reached out through Facebook to the Druther’s in Campbellsville, Kentucky when I found out about its existence. I didn’t even know that there were any still around. Druther’s started out as Burger Queen in Louisville, Kentucky. The first location opened in 1963. By 1981 they had changed their name to Druther’s (a play […]

A Visit To White Castle Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Burger Beast on the Road, Columbus, Ohio

I grew up in the Westchester suburb of Miami in the 1980s where there was no White Castle or any type of slider available. Well, truthfully speaking there hadn’t been a White Castle in South Florida since the late 1960s. Yet, somehow I was aware of who White Castle was and their important place in […]
