The Imperial's an oasis where you can get great pub fare with an intense beer selection. Their must-try is the pimento cheese and bacon “Southern Living Burger”.
This isn't your average bowling alley with limp, greasy pizza and lukewarm hot dogs. No, The Painted Pin is serving up wood-fired pizzas and malted mini Waffle Dogs w/ sweet soy aioli. Plus they've got signature cocktails like a Moscow Mule Slushie that probably won't help your score but are totally worth it.
Flip Burger Boutique, the Atlanta-born, modern burger joint from acclaimed Chef Richard Blais, was one of the city’s first to hone in on boutique burgers, and it ignited a frenzy. Now with locations in Nashville and Birmingham, Flip continues to serve the Southeastern masses over a dozen innovative burgers, sides, and nitro-milkshakes. You can’t go wrong with the Classic, but the Stack is something really special (two specialty-seasoned patties, American cheese, grilled onions, tomato, shredded lettuce, pickles, flip sauce, you’re welcome). If you’re craving adventure, try the raw steak tartare burger, or go poultry with the fried chicken sandwich, or avoid meat all together with the "Fauxlafel." No matter what you order, it’s important to enjoy it with a side of sweet potato tots, and to wash it down with a milkshake.
They've got killer burgers and hot dogs. Be sure to try the Mexi Hot Dog with bacon -- it's drowned in nacho cheese, chili, hot sauce, and veggies.
For all of those times you're craving a ginormous corn dog, head to this retro spot that also slings boozy milkshakes. Whatever you do, don't forget to order the $6 Sea Witch, an awesome twist on a Bloody Mary made with local Batdorf & Bronson coffee and Guinness and rimmed with Old Bay seasoning.
