There’s a little grassroots campaign under way to bring Whataburger to Memphis. When I heard  about it, I thought, “Just one more place to drive past on my way to Tops.” Cheeseburger combo, mustard no mayo, root beer. Every single time.

This is an Epic Burger on a whole wheat bun with fried egg, grilled onions, bacon and cheese. It lived up to the “epic” moniker — as did the hand-cut fries and vanilla shake (not pictured).
Service at the counter was friendly and we got through the line quickly.
The Chicago chain features only fresh, natural ingredients and all the burgers (plus the turkey burger, portabella and chicken breast sandwiches) are made to order. Of course they take a little longer than at a fast-food place, but they are worth the wait. And the burgers are large for the cost and quality.
There are six locations: the one we dined at was next to a Bentley dealership. Whoa.

This is the Mediterranean burger (and pasta salad)from one of my favorite NOLA restaurants, Angeli on Decatur. It’s my go-to lunch spot after a day of shopping in the Quarter.
