Food That Will Kill You!.. Right Here in Atlanta

When I was a kid, I would come home from school and sometimes make;

A peanut butter, potato-chip, dill pickle and apple jelly sandwich,
and a glass of half Pepsi/chocolate milk.


Now that I am an adult, I knew I had to change my eating habits. So, when I heard of the Luther Burger, I had to investigate. Luckily for me, I hit paydirt in Atlanta.

First stop, Mulligan's (Google Map), home of the Luther and the Hamdog.

The Luther was the creation of singer Luther Vandross, who when found his kitchen lacking hamburger buns, used donuts instead. Mulligan's started serving Vandross' creation to the people as a public service, and there was much rejoicing. If you have recently watched the The Boondocks on Cartoon Network, the Luther was featured in the Granddad's soulfood restaurant.

The Luther picture above comes from the Texas Burger Guy's Luther Burger and Hamdog Pictures!!!!! post. The site is loaded with burger joint reviews and pictures from around the country.

Mulligan's second contribution was the Hamdog.

The picture says it all. The helpful diagram come from the absolutely Not-Safe-For-Work! site Consumption Junction. Seriously. NWS.

Moving away from Mulligan's, is Ann's Snack Bar, home of the Ghetto Burger.

Ann's is good food served with a heavy hand. She takes no lip and you better know what you want or you will be out on you ass with no food. There 's a list of rules on the wall that are not to be broken. Think I'm joking. here's one review on Citysearch...

"I recently had surgery on my back and couldn't sit down, and all Ann could say was read the rule sign and you should have gone to a place where you could standup. I will never go there again and I will advise all my friends never to go there either."

So, either be ready to take any order given or don't go to Ann's.

So, if anyone local is itching to hit these spots, I'm looking for company to join me. Drop me a line and be ready to push the wheelchair.

EWW!!! A donut and a hamburger?! Ew!!! Also, I think that one of those hamdogs could completely block my intestines; permanently.

Are you in a wheelchair? What happened? You weren't last time I saw you!

Duane - you can stop worrying, he was quoting a review on Citysearch.
