From the vibrant 50s diner decor—complete with checkered floors and bright red walls—to hearing Johnny Cash and Buddy Holly on the old jukebox, customers of KirbyG’s on the square will feel as though they’ve been transported to another era while eating what are arguably the best burgers in Georgia.
Their burgers have been ranked among the top 50 best burgers at the World Food Championships in Las Vegas since 2013, which is when the “Old Blue Eyes Black and Blue Burger” was named the 27th best burger in the world. And it’s easy to see why, with the burger’s hand-formed patty, spicy mayo, smoky bacon, and creamy texture from the melted monterey jack and blue cheeses.
KirbyG’s takes their competitions and their food seriously. The managers and “pit crew” have been trained in Nashville on how to be burger judges in order to help them create the perfect, award winning burgers. The diner even offers weekly “Taste Test Tuesdays” for outside-the-box burger flavor combinations, including a burger that uses two Krispy Kreme doughnuts for hamburger buns.
