The Burger: Grease is the word at Dyer’s Burger, a Memphis institution since 1912. The pounded-thin, all-beef patties at this café are dunked in a cast-iron skillet of boiling hot vegetable oil. The meat turns crunchy as the fry cook flips it onto a squishy Wonder Bread bun. Only mustard, pickles, and onions accompany. Many die-hards favor the “triple triple” combo: three patties stacked between molten slices of processed American cheese.

Best Sides: Add more vitamin “G” to your diet with onion rings, chili cheese fries, and a deep-fried Twinkie.
