The Diner Burger
Burger authorities have all but exiled mustard, but the brave few who use it do so with great success. Big and burly, the Diner Burger is a thrilling play of American cheese, biting raw onions, and sharp hits of French’s mustard and mayo. Its thin patties are aggressively salted (sometimes too aggressively) and deftly seared on a flattop for tremendous effect. $10 (burger and fries). 918 Austin Avenue, thealbertatlanta.com
