Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Georgia, News

I couldn’t believe it had been 5 years since I’d been to Ann’s Snack Bar. Shortly after my visit, Ann Price put up her Ann’s Snack Bar for sale with a $1.5 million price tag on it.  I’m not even sure you could churn out $1 million worth of Burgers out of a 8 stool […]

I almost didn’t end up eating at Bill’s Hamburgers in Amory, Mississippi.

It wasn’t in the cards originally but when he […]

Ann’s Snack Bar In The NY Times

Posted on 1 CommentPosted in Burgers, News

I’m not easily intimidated but…..Ann, she’s a different story. I first read about Ann’s Snack Bar in the Hamburger America book. I didn’t want to get kicked out, at least not until I got to try her food. I was a good boy that day and enjoyed the grub. She has rules and you must […]
