- The Holding Pen in Hog & Hominy, Memphis, TN
What you're getting: "The Prohibition"
Basically a "restaurant within a restaurant", the guys at Hog & Hominy are calling their back porch the Holding Pen and serving two things: oysters and burgers. You don't have a choice on your burger, but you won't need one: the Prohibition is a nicely charred, half beef, half caramelized onion patty topped with American, mustard, and pickled lettuce, which, as my friend and Nashville Lifestyles food writer Erin Murray points out, "is way better than actual pickles because the lettuce shreds cover a greater surface area, thereby evenly distributing the pickle flavor. Genius." Indeed it is.

What you're getting: "The Soul Burger"
It's been said to be "where all good people in Memphis end up after a bender". And that's not just because it's in a former brothel and the sign outside calls it a "sundry store". Get The Soul Burger, then go wander around upstairs while it cooks, and see if you can see any ghosts of the ladies of the night. Then come back downstairs and eat that glorious patty with a side of Golden Flake potato chips.
