I almost didn’t end up eating at Bill’s Hamburgers in Amory, Mississippi. I had been giving updates to George Motz of Hamburger America/Burger Land as to my Burger whereabouts when he told me that without a doubt I needed to make the drive to Bill’s Hamburgers. It wasn’t in the cards originally but when he said it might be a once in a lifetime kinda thing then it was time to change gears.
The menu consists of Burgers, Fries, Onions, Chips, Nachos (?), Pies and drinks. The Burgers can be ordered ‘with’ or ‘without’ Onions & Mustard, American Cheese is also an option.
I sat down right under the Hamburger America map and remember what George said to me as I’m placing my order, eat three. I order a Hamburger ‘with’ and a Cheeseburger ‘with’, all the while thinking about George’s suggestion. My friends Ed & John both go straight for the Double Cheeseburgers ‘with’.
I ordered some of their shoestring Fries but they’re left mostly untouched. Once I tasted the Burger I knew I had to go the double route. By this time, the waitress comes over asking if we need anything else. We’re pretty sure she knew we were gearing up for round two. This time everyone gets a Double Cheeseburger ‘with’.
I’m left speechless. It really is that good. The guys order Fried Pies and I can’t help myself and order another Double Cheeseburger ‘with’. I’m not even sure I can put it down.
I figure at worst I’ll take it to go but before you know it, I’ve eaten this one too. At this point, I ask for the check. I need to get out of here before I order another one.
The minute we were back in the car and on our way to Memphis our conversation turned to the Burger at Bill’s Hamburgers. We were all in agreement, it was one of the Best Burgers we’ve ever had. Thanks, George for the heads up.
