My wife Marcela and I, while searching out Antique Shops in the Jackson, Tennessee for my collection ran across the Burger Barn. When you see a sign that says, “Real Homemade Hamburgers” you know that it’s a must stop in my book. Burger Barn is an old school place your order at the window (where you also pick up the food) and then take a seat the covered picnic benches to enjoy your meal.
We’re in the South so a Chili Dog must also be added to the equation. It wasn’t homemade Chili which kinda killed it for me. Marcela wants Spicy Fries and since I agree to share them I go along with her proposition. It was a good choice. I don’t normally like pre-spiced Fries but I definitely enjoyed these.
On the Burger side of things, she goes all Patty Melt while I go Large Cheese Burger (aka 2 Patties). I’m not quite sure I would consider what she was served a Patty Melt (toasted White Bread instead of griddled Buttered Rye Bread) but it did taste good, so that’s gotta mean something, right? The Large Cheeseburger was a winner with added points for the little meat corner hanging out the bread. I’m telling you that for $3.29 this cannot be beaten.
I just noticed while reviewing the Menu that Burger Barn also has Hot Wings…..and a Chuckwagon Steak Sandwich? This calls for a return visit.
