The Meatstick
Robert Phalen probably wishes that people would stop talking about his burger, but it’s his own fault for concocting something this addictive—and giving it such a provocative name. The meat is 80 percent grass-fed beef and 20 percent bacon, which adds an echo of smoke to two charred patties—all oozing between an airy bun from Alon’s. $12 (burger and fries). 1029 Edgewood Avenue, oneearedstagatl.com
