Phillips Grocery, Oxford, MS

Don't let the exterior of Phillips Grocery fool you. The building was originally opened as a saloon in 1892, then it became a grocery store in 1919. They started serving food in 1948, and there's a good reason they're still in business. Their burgers are known for being some of the best in the state!

Customers love the fast, friendly service and the casual atmosphere, as well as the variety of options on the menu. If you're feeling adventurous, try the Peanut Butter Burger!

Latham's Hamburger Inn, New Albany, MS

Latham's Hamburger Inn in New Albany is a real Mississippi institution. They've been around since the 1930s (although they were called Stagg's back in those days). Their dough burgers are a carefully guarded recipe, and are a unique combination of meat, spices, and dough that customers love.

Sidestreet Burgers, Olive Branch, MS

Olive Branch is one of the fastest-growing areas in the state, and Sidestreet Burgers is making a splash.

Neon Pig, Tupelo, MS

The Neon Pig in Tupelo is truly one-of-a-kind in our state. They are an old-fashioned butcher shop who also sells food (and beer!), and they source all of their animals from local farms, meaning you know for sure you're getting some of the freshest meat available anywhere. Their Smash Burger has been called the best in the state!

Abe's Grill, Corinth, MS

Abe's Grill in Corinth has been in business since 1974, and it's still run by the original owners.

Their hamburger meat is ground fresh every day, and their options are simple—single or double, with or without cheese, and your choice of toppings.
