Hamburger America POI

Here are the coordinates for the hamburger places mentioned in Hamburger America. This list is in no way a substitute for the book, which I recommend.

Any errors, especially geocoding errors, are mine. A couple of places required some research to get the coordinates (e.g. Meers Store) and I haven't been able to verify them all. In addition there are a few places that have multiple locations - in these cases the only location listed is the one from the book.

Marc said...

Just the kind of list that will help raise my cholesterol another few ticks...thanks!

I am sure this wasn't easy, thanks for the hard work.

David said...

Thanks Marc. Looking at your blog (which I will definitely start reading) it doesn't really look like you need much help. :-)


Jay said...

Thanks for this! I was working on creating my own and I stumbled upon yours while doing a search for some sort of address for Clamp's in New Milford, CT.

David said...

Hi Jay. Clamps was hard to find. I ended up doing a google maps search and taking the consensus from some user generated content (My Maps stuff).

I live close enough to confirm it, which I will do some weekend real soon.


Hamburger America said...

WOW. David, what possessed you? This is a truly amazing resource and thanks for doing this. Back when we started putting the book together I imagined putting in the coordinates right there with the website, address, and phone number. Then I imagined most people would just plug in the address. This is way more fun!

David said...

Hi George.

It was a perfect storm. I had just read and enjoyed the book, I had a new GPS, I was taking a road trip, I was hungry and inspired to eat hamburgers, and I was curious to mess with the Yahoo! Maps geocoding API.

The only hard part was typing in the addresses. A clever person would have emailed you to see if you already had such a list. :-)


David said...

Hey George, while I have you here (assuming you get back to this) I did spot one wrong address that you might want to note for your errata if you haven't already.

You have the address for Donovan's Pub as 5724, but it is 57-24 I think and according to Google Maps there is no such thing as 5724. It is an understandable mistake - who ever heard of a hyphenated address?


Jay said...

Hey David,

So far this summer your Hamburger America POI has guided the missus and me to Rotier's and Browns in Nashville (back in June), and on a road trip last week we hit Hamburg Inn No. 2 (Iowa City), Town Topic (Kansas City), The Meers Store (Oklahoma), Casino El Camino & Dirty Martin's (both Austin), and Dyer's (Memphis). Six great burgers in five days!

David said...

Jay - that's great! Thanks for letting me know that the list has been useful (and apparently accurate).

You managed to hit more spots than I did this summer. I need to get out more.


Jay said...


We can't stop! A few weeks ago we took a trip to Columbus and tried the Beanie Burger at Gahanna Grill (fantastic), and on the way back we went to the Hamburger Wagon in Miamisville, OH. Those little burgers were easily among the best I've ever had in my life.

This Saturday we're planning a drive to Michigan to go to Redamak's before they close for the winter.

Thanks again for putting together the POI. So far every entry has been spot on.

David said...


Thanks again for the feedback. I am really pleased that you are getting so much use out of it.


Erik said...

Hi David!

This is much easier than typing in addresses from the table of contents. Thanks!

I believe you missed one (at least). I just got back from a weekend trip to Cotham's Mercantile where I had the Hubcap. It was BIG and delicious. Anyway I don't see it on your list.

Here's a link to my google map where I've plotted the places I've been or will go within the next few weeks. Look near Little Rock. I went to the original in Scott on a swampy lake. Neat place.

I'm a travelling consultant based in Memphis. I try to go to a local-based place whenever I'm on the road.

Dyer's just opened a satellite location near my home. It seems that ownership/management on a few of these has changed recently. (Northgate in Greenville, SC comes to mind). I hope they maintain the quality.

Who would have thought hitting burger joints and meat & 3 type restaurants would be so much fun. said...

Wow, fantastic resource. Thank you!
