There’s one thing we learned as Americans; everything is better fried. That’s why we are all so pleasantly plump and why our State Fairs are basically run by fried butter and Carny creeps. Dyer’s Burgers in Memphis knows what pleases the common folks and that’s a frying pan loaded with beef fat tallow that is purportedly one hundred years old. Take your beef patty and drown it in the beautiful lard until it becomes crispy. They deep fry the cheddar that goes on the burger. If we could have it our way, our hearts would be deep-fried, too.
