I think I first heard about Dyer’s Burgers on a Food-TV show years back. If not, I definitely read about it in the burger bible, George Motz’s book Hamburger America.We wandered past Dyer’s on our first evening in Memphis just to check it out. We already had barbecue for dinner so our burger pilgrimage would have to wait for another day.Here is what makes Dyer’s burgers so special. According to the restaurant’s website, “Legend has it that the “secret” was Doc Dyer’s ageless cooking grease. This famous grease, strained daily, has continued to produce our juicy Dyer’s Burgers for almost a century now.”
We found this burger to be extremely flavorful and one of the juiciest burgers we’ve ever had! There isn’t much more to say about it…However, I have to say I was disappointed that I wasn’t hungry enough to order another for us to share. It was that good!
We planned to pay another visit to Dyer’s while in Memphis but that plan never materialized. I guess there’s always next time!
Dyer’s Burgers is located at 205 Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee.
