For a pure hamburger / cheeseburger, Hamburger Mike’s in Stockbridge and Sue’s Burgers in Blue Ridge have to be on your list.

I have had several burgers from Green Truck Pub in Savannah and Farmhaus in Augusta. They’re both amazing burgers. But one of the best that’s missing from this list, possibly my favorite, comes from Friends Grille and Bar in Valdosta, GA!! It’s a must on any top burger list.
