I almost didn’t end up eating at Bill’s Hamburgers (310 Main Street N) in Amory, Mississippi. I had been giving updates to George Motz of Hamburger America as to my Burger whereabouts when he told me that without a doubt, I needed to make the drive to Bill’s Hamburgers. When George said it might be a once in a lifetime kind of thing, we changed gears.
The menu is simple and consists of burgers, fries, onions, chips, nachos (weird choice), fried pies, and drinks. The burgers can be ordered with or without onions & mustard. American Cheese is also an option and a necessary evil.
Let’s do this!
I sat down right under the Hamburger America map and remembered 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 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 am speechless. It 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 eat it at this point. I figure at worst I’ll take it to go, but before you know it, I’ve eaten this one too.
Check, please! 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.
NOTE: It was not until much later that I found out it was a SlugBurger.
