The Wall Street Journal named the “Ghetto Burger” the best burger in America in 2007.

The restaurant was an Atlanta institution known for its burger.

Ann Price — better known to her customers as Miss Ann — opened the doors to her restaurant in the early 1970s.


In 2010, the New York Times reported that Ann’s Snack Bar was listed for sale for $1.5 million. “People come here from all over the world, people from every race,” Price told the Times. “Everybody wants to know: what is a Ghetto Burger?”

Price passed away in April 2015. She was 72.

The building on Memorial Drive is up for sale with a price tag of $650,000.
