Larger-than-life owner Jack Perkins has a few rules, none of which are made to be broken. Wait in line, place your order, then sit down at an empty table and wait for your number to be called. Stray from that formula, and you may never get the chance to sink your teeth into this near-perfect burger, recognized by Food Network star Guy Fieri of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The patties consist of a 70-30 ratio of ground chuck to brisket, which translates to fatty and flavorful meat that melts into the buttered, griddled bun. House-made ice cream floats somewhere between soft serve and milkshake.
