Fabgrandpa and I have passed by the Burger Chick every time we go through Tallapoosa for more than two years now. We finally decided to go there and get a burger and a shake on Saturday. Now, we have no idea why we put it off so long.
The Burger Chick has been in business for forty two years. The building looks that old, but it is clean and looks like it has been cared for. The health dept inspection report in the window shows a score of 94/A for last month. When we got there, there was a group of young people ordering their meals. It’s a walk up place, with a counter on the outside so you can stand there and eat if you want to, but they have also acquired the storefront next door and added a few tables so you can go over there and sit down.
The window says Hot Dogs, Cones, & Sundaes, but you can get a lot more than that. Burgers, cheese burgers, fries, onion rings, salads, chicken tenders, grilled chicken, and more. The burgers were some of the best we have had in a long time. They looked like they were patted out by hand. I had mine with no bun, with ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, and onion.
The fries were ordinary crinkle cut but you could get them with cheese and chili if you want. I forgot to take pictures of the food, but trust me that it was good to eat, and the prices were reasonable. Burger Chick is located at 2106 US Hwy 78, Tallapoosa, GA. Call ahead to make sure they are open, or place an order over the phone (770) 574-2052.
