In a city that has such an abundance of good burgers, you might not feel compelled to leave town in order to find a decent beefwich -- but as it turns out, there are many people in The Volunteer State who enjoy making damn-fine burgers almost as much as we do. Here are 10 you shouldn't miss...
What you're getting: Dyer's Single with Cheese
So, as it turns out, when you deep-fry a hamburger, it tastes delicious (who knew?!). The folks at Dyer's take the beef, smash it paper-thin on a marble countertop, and drop it in a cast-iron skillet swimming in century-old beef tallow, before taking it out and adding cheese, mustard, and a pickle. That's right, there's no lettuce, and there's no tomato -- this is uncut, pure, mainlined hamburger, made the same way since 1912.
