On a recent road trip from Asheville, NC to South Florida I found the smallest, friendliest, tastiest and most crowded hamburger spot in the south... Just outside Clemson University in Anderson, SC is a hamburger spot only accepting cash, knowing everyone by their first name and making the best burgers since 1981.
I do agree... They make a solid burger. Very similar to Jack's in Ft. Lauderdale, they don't mess around with fancy toppings. Its all about the meat & cheese. Did I mention their prices were still stuck in 1981?
So of course I went with the Double Cheese Burger. Outstanding. Perfect burger for the road trip! Turned out to be a little sloppy but really didn't mind. Along with the other 50 or so people jamming in the place. Everyone had a smile on!
If you're planning a road trip through the Carolina's make sure to Arnold's Famous Hamburgers on your must-see list. Right off of I-85 in Anderson, SC.
Overall rating from Rare (worst) to Well-Done (best):
Arnold's Famous Hamburgers = Well-Done!
