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.
