All The Best Burgers You Have To Eat In Memphis

– Try the Good Night/Good Cause from Hopdoddy. Yes, it’s a chain, but $1 of proceeds for this particular burger (with cheddar, caramelized onions, caffeinated BBQ, jalapeños) are donated back to the Stax Academy.

– The Pub Burger at Local Gastropub (Overton or Main Street) is good for $6.99 (with fries) during lunch and all day on Mondays. Nice.

– Babalu Burger from Babalu is available at their Overton Square and East Memphis locations, and people really love it.

– The Southern Gentleman from Belly Acres in Overton Square comes with greens, bacon, and sweet potato.

Where To Watch The Super Bowl in Memphis

On February 4th, many of us will be watching intently as the battle of University of Memphis Kickers Jake Elliot and Stephen Gostkowski takes place on national television with local Memphian Justin Timberlake performing at halftime.

This year, the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots (of course the Patriots) are facing off in a rematch of Super Bowl 39. If you aren’t planning on throwing your own party, local sports bars around the city have got you covered. Whereever you choose to go, be ready to partake in the classic tradition of rooting for anyone but the Patriots (unless you’re from New England and in that case, you get a pass) and skipping to the commercials. And while it may sound odd to those outside of Memphis, here’s hoping there are plenty of field goals!
