The Famous Pool Room Coleslaw Burgers

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Elizabeth Fullerton

In the little southern town of Fayetteville, Tennessee, people come from all around to have these burgers. People who have grown up in the area but have moved away make special trips to get them. There are two different pool rooms on the square (Bill's Pool Room and Honey's). However, you can find these burgers at any greasy spoon in the Lincoln County area.

I worked several years for the man who invented the Pool Room Slaw Burger.The recipe that is posted here is slightly different from the original. As for how to eat the burger, the following is the most popular;fry your burger then put a layer of the slaw over the pattie(as much as you like),then a slice of raw onion, topped off by 4 to 5 dill pickle chips.They are best served on a toasted bun.
