Troy’s Burger Corner: The Red-Eyed Mule


The Red Eyed Mule- “Jake’s Sloppy Troy's burger cornerSlaw Burger”

by Troy Anders

When I read that Food Network star Alton Brown said this was his favorite burger in Atlanta, I had to give it a try.  After I tried it, I couldn’t have agreed with him more. This Burger is a 6 oz black angus patty topped with “sloppy jimmy” and coleslaw, with 2 buttered and crunchy Texas toast buns. Normally for me to really like a burger, it has to be a thick and nice piece of meat. This flat top fried burger did

just the trick. Everything about this burger is good, but what makes it special is the combination of the slaw and the “sloppy Jimmy” which is like sloppy Joe. I’m not sure how to describe the taste this combination makes but it sure is good. Without a doubt… my favorite burger in Atlanta. I look forward to finding a burger that beats it.

Please add a comment to this post if you have suggestions for burger places for Troy to try.

  1. Hey Audra and Troy, your review of this burger reminded me of another popular burger that is worth the drive. The Bully Burger at The Dawsonville Poolroom. Have you heard of it? It is a little hole in the wall kind of place that pays tribute to Nascar racing and has a very old school feel. It is not fancy but the burgers are really good. It is crowded on fall weekends when the pumpkin patches are open. Best to go at an off time, not far from Dawsonville outlet. Now I am hungry!
