Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

Midtown gets another burger place and a hot chicken restaurant. Maybe the pedal tavern will add both to its route so everyone coming in from Germantown and Collierville can get the full experience. How freaking exciting.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

For many years I had myself convinced that the sign said Joe grinds his own meat daily, and I was not alone.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

When I heard they grind their meats daily in-house... well, I decided right then and there I was going to have to make the pilgrimage. And with a nice thick stack of small denomination currency. For tips. Just in case.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

BP45 - This discussion is about having too many burger joints in the immediate Overton Square area, specifically...not the entire city of Memphis, in general.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

Mia,
I did not mean to impugn your refined sensibilities, that was just a fortunate byproduct. I was just pointing out that BP45's comparison to SF was incorrect. My diminishing connection to Memphis makes my comments in regard to the Square less than learned. But while Memphis has done well with outside influences in regards to human rights and even basketball, food has never been an area in need of help.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

The population of the San Francisco metro is over 6 mil. the population of NYC metro is over 20 mil. The population of Memphis metro is a little over 1 mil.

Try looking at some newspapers for similar sized metro areas. I feel pretty certain you'll see similar headlines.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

BP45 - where did anybody say anything about buying local or keeping out out-of-towners? We're just having a little fun at the fact that there's going to be about 5 burger places in about a square mile. It's all just jokes, man. Ain't nobody mad at em. I, for one, will be there with the Frat daddies cause those fries look awesome. (As long as they don't try to screw you over like LBOE and make you buy a lifetime supply of fries instead of just a side)

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

Mullins, Don't forget those horrid Hell's Angels people and their Frisco vests. I'm sure the lovely Pacific Heights people would love to be rid of them as well as you. Maybe turn their club house into a Bennigans.

BP45,
Picked it up from the old Mission Irish and their Sunset progeny; largely to piss off the elites. Happily, before I left, it was the choice of Project kids.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

BP45,
Don't know about NYC, but, respectfully, you are so wrong about Frisco. After nearly 40 years there I can tell you provincialism is alive and well high end, and if In/Out burger opens shop in a new neighborhood there is dancing in the streets. But the loss of Joe's Cable Car Burgers,and the Tic Toc or the change in fish sandwiches at Beeps is cause for despair.
Actually off hand I can't think of many businesses moving in from out of town.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

Nick R: The headline of our daily newspaper today proclaims that a chick-fil-a is opening in Bartlett. I assure you fast food burger news does not register as a new item in NYC or SF and if a restaurant or a person moves in from out of town they don't say "shop local" our closed minded small town response is trumpian.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

BP45, "..when Hopdoddy moved into Houston or the LA metro if people were concerned about too many hamberger options... " Of course there were. And in NYC, SF, Seattle. They're human too.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

I wonder when Hopdoddy moved into Houston or the LA metro if people were concerned about too many hamberger options or buying local or keeping out out of towners. Or is that just our own "build a wall" small town shining through.
It's a new burger joint from Austin a new chicken joint from Nashville is opening down the street. Big cities want outsiders and their money and ideas and they support them.

Can confirm on Lamplighter. Fire food, friendly staff, extra tasty Memphis in all respects.

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

nobody, do you have a chart for all this?

Posted by Nick R on 03/07/2017 at 1:27 PM

Re: “Hopdoddy Coming to Overton Square

Burger King is for scumbags (or people who have just generally given up on life), Huey's is for teenagers, Lamplighter is for the coolest people anywhere - and also scumbags.
