During our road trip from Miami to Mississippi, we occasionally need to stop for gas. I prefer that the stops coincide with a town that has a locally-owned burger joint. On the drive’s last leg, we stopped at Sam’s Super Burger in Grand Bay, Alabama.
Sam’s Super Burger Menu
After thoroughly thinking it out, my order consists of a Super Burger Double with cheese (w/fries & drink), a Super Dog, & 3 fresh chicken tenders. I was excited to see the branded cup with the Sam’s Super Burger logo, which I tried to keep (for my Burger Museum collection).
Unfortunately, I lost it in Oxford, Mississippi, when it rolled under my car into another dimension.
The Super Dog had slaw, sauerkraut, chili, cheese, onion, and yellow mustard. I’m not a sauerkraut fan, so I’m not sure why I ordered this other than to have their signature hot dog. I’d typically eat a chili dog with onions and yellow mustard.
However, the flavors jelled well, and I imagine this is a popular dish here.
I’ve been on a chicken tenders kick for the last year or so. Sam Super Burgers’ boneless chicken ranks right up with some of the best. They were not some prepackaged deal but made in-house, and you could taste that. I was in a no-sharing zone with these dudes.
Burger and Fry Talk
The fries were cooked slightly less than I would have liked, but it’s something that I found all around the South (Northern Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee & now Alabama). So it must be a “thing” here.
The bread was toasted, the cheese was melted, and it was a Super Burger. Besides looking like a million bucks, the burger was excellent. I spoke to the owner when I placed my order, and he mentioned that they use Midwestern Black Angus Chuck to make their burgers.
I’m sure there was plenty of love in there, too, cause I felt it, and I’m now returning the favor.
