Clean Plate Recommendation

Cheeseburger Bobby’s

725 Beltline Rd SW, Decatur, AL 35603

Score: 98

If you’re like me, nothing satisfies better than a juicy burger — add cheese please!

Forget the salad bar, at the ‘burger bar’ you can dress up your hamburger and bun with a wide selection of toppings and spices.

But if you’re going off the menu — their “bucket list” burger has plenty on top like a fried egg, American cheese, bacon, an onion ring, Bobby’s sauce and a pickle on top.

Turkey and veggie burgers are also available for non-red-meat eaters.

Freshly cut fries get a pop of seasoning with salt pepper and garlic.

For dessert, their thick creamy custard serves as the base for concretes, sundaes and shakes.

They say they work hard to maintain a clean space.
