Too hot to cook but don’t know where to go? The Local Palate team has got you covered. Our foodie experts have compiled this list of a few of the tastiest burgers in the South. And trust us — you don’t want to miss these bites.


THE WHISKEY JAR
227 West Main St. Charlottesville, VA
The Whiskey Jar Cheeseburger is grass-fed beef served medium rare. Don’t mess with the formula and order as suggested.


GRILL MARKS
209 S Main St. Greenville, SC
Great burgers. Great buns. We get the “Hot Mess” burger because it has pimento cheese.


HOLEMAN & FINCH PUBLIC HOUSE
2277 Peachtree Rd. Atlanta, GA
Atlanta’s legendary burger is a must—there are only 24 nightly, so get there early to reserve one or you’ll miss out on some greatness.


FLIP BURGER BOUTIQUE
220 Summit Blvd Birmingham, AL
This modern burger boutique serves a medley of gourmet burgers.


THE ROOT
110 W. Lebanon Ave. Elon, NC
College hangout burgers, all of which can be substituted for a homemade vegan burger or a chicken burger.


THE PHARMACY
731 McFerrin Ave. Nashville, TN
You don’t need a prescription for these hunger-cures made from all local ingredients.


STANTON’S CITY BITES
1420 Edwards St. Houston, TX
Bigger than just bites. The Luke Skyburger is particularly appealing since it goes big with a combo of deep-fried bacon, fresh garlic, and sautéed spinach.


HARVEST
624 E Market St. Louisville, KY
A local favorite among Louisville residents, Harvest’s burger is tasty served on a pretzel bun.
