Screen shot 2014-08-30 at 2.36.06 PMAnn’s Snack Bar is a small restaurant in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia famous for its hamburgers. It is owned and operated solely by Ann Price, known to patrons as “Miss Ann”, and has been in operation since 1971. The house special is called the “Ghetto Burger”, a double bacon chili cheeseburger with a secret ingredient, which her patrons named as a joke (another with cole slaw is called the “Hood Burger”).[1]

A 2007 Wall Street Journal article called the Ghetto Burger the best hamburger in America. In the same article, the author declared Atlanta to be the best city for hamburgers, citing the Vortex (in Little Five Points and Midtown Atlanta) and the EARL (in East Atlanta) as other Atlanta restaurants with top hamburgers.[2][3] Fans include celebrity Sean Combs and a “horde of Twitter-driven food enthusiasts”, who began to discover the restaurant after a 1998 Atlanta Constitution article.[1]

Price, who is in her sixties and hoping to retire, has been trying to sell the restaurant since 2009, initially setting the value at $1.5 million, but as of late 2010, the difficult real estate market has forced her to lower her asking price.
