Help name a new burger restaurant in Georgia!

Posted for a friend:
We're looking for great names for a new burger restaurant in Georgia. We're focusing on the basics: hamburgers, fries & milkshakes. Nothing is made until you order it, so freshness and simplicity will always be our focus. We're thinking of a somewhat nostalgic 'Happy Days' feel, but that's not required.

Burger Jerk

Because I like the sound and I like the use of the word Jerk as in Soda Jerk.

Where in Georgia? That might make a difference.

Nostalgic feel? That would be on the lines of:

Mel's
Al's
Ruby's
Bubba's

...or something like that with a short traditional name or nickname.

How about some examples of burger joints from up here in Manitoba? (non-franchise)

Dairy Whip
George's Burger and Submarine (Might actually be a franchise, im not sure)
The Half Moon
VJ's Drive Inn
The Burger Place
Kelekis
Wimpy's (I believe this is/was a chain, but this is a one-off unrelated location)

For the record, Dairy Whip is the king of Manitoban burgers in my opinion. The Greek style "Fat Boy" seems to be quite common and insanely delicious. It's a standard burger, large and on a big soft bun. Topped with Mayo, mustard, tomato, shredded lettuce, pickles, onion, and chili (no beans!).

Well, for a Happy Days feel, you would of course name it "Arnolds." Might not want to be too obvious about it, though, like copying the decor from the show.

Other thoughts:
Fast & Fresh Burger
Burgers, Shakes, & Fries
Classic Burger
Old Fashioned Burgers

Is this a sit-down restaurant or more fast-food feel (like In-N-Out)?
posted by junesix at 10:25 AM on July 14, 2006


Is there going to be any kind of special, "signature" burger that you can only get at this restaurant, like the Big Mac or the Big Buford? If there is, you could name the restaurant after the burger -- "Big [Something]'s, Home of the Big [Something] Burger!" Big Sweeney or Big Thompson or Big Dave or whatever the owner's name is.

I've always wanted to start a restaurant where they give you a beef patty cooked to your request and you, the customer, choose the bun (from several varieties) and apply the toppings (including many exotic toppings, way beyond the usual) buffet-style. It would be called Smorgasburger (or SmörgÄsburger if you want to include the original Scandinavian diacriticals).

Since the chances I will ever start a restaurant are slim to none, if you by some chance wanted to use something like that concept, you can have the name.
