HAWKINSVILLE, Ga. — Ready for a road trip? Georgia’s best burger has been named and it’s just a short drive down Interstate 75 South.
The Georgia Beef Board opened up voting for the Georgia’s best burger for 2021. The final four were revealed last month:
- Hell’s 1/2 Pounder from CASEY’S in Winder
- Full Monte from The Grill in Hawkinsville
- Juliette Burger from Ocmulgee Brewpub in Macon
- Cheeseburger Talmo Style from Talmo Market Grill in Talmo
After hundreds of votes and a lot of burgers consumed, the council decided that the Full Monte from The Grill in Hawkinsville was Georgia’s best burger for 2021.
WMAZ-TV went to the restaurant and spoke to its owner about the award. The Grill has been open since the 1940s, but Paula Nixon has only been the owner for about six years.
“It is the best thing ever,” Nixon told WMAZ-TV.
The burger is “all the way” with fried egg, bacon and pimento cheese. It costs $5.95.
