Fresh. Contemporary. Handcrafted.
When asked what three words best described Southern Burger Co., owner Christian Siler put these on the table. What more could you ask for? Well, lucky for you, Southern Burger Co. has a lot more to offer.
With its origins stretching back a mere six years, Southern Burger Co. has established a new way of crafting burgers. They began as a food truck, delivering some of the finest hand ground burgers the people of Chattanooga have ever tasted. When it became obvious a truck wasn’t big enough to house their success, they moved into a restaurant in Ooltewah, where they are now located.
From the very beginning, their “thing” has always been fresh ingredients. Almost all of the ingredients you desire are made right there in the restaurant. They have their own specialty ketchup, mustard, and jam. It’s not just any jam, it’s bacon and habanero jam. They aren’t messing around when it comes to homegrown flavor.
A few novelty ingredients are locally sourced, including the delicious Wickles Pickles from Alabama and Niedlov’s Breadworks. Don’t you wish you could sink your teeth in right this minute?
Their nightly events are just as numerous and tempting as their ingredients. Monday-Friday from 2-6 p.m. is happy hour. On Tuesday’s you can try your hand at free trivia night with $5 pitchers of craft beer. Wednesday is College Night, which means if you’re in college and you’re as broke as you claim, you can come B.Y.O.B. (Build Your Own Burger) for $3.99. Last, but definitely not least is $3 Pint Night from 6-10 p.m on Thursdays. Pick a day and Southern Burger Co. has something for you.
When they say they are all about specialty, they mean it. They have local craft beer on tap everyday and hand ground burgers with ingredients such as fried mac n’ cheese, Chorizo sausage, and eggplant. No, not on the same burger of course.
If it isn’t obvious already, the folks at Southern Burger Co. put as much love into everything as they can. Mr. Siler’s hope is this, “That we have customers leave more relaxed than when they got here…that they go home happier.”
With all these deliciously mouthwatering ingredients and southern charm, it would be near impossible not to go home happy. See for yourself and go stop by for a handmade, heartfelt southern burger and a tasty cold drink.
