Do you like big juicy burgers with creative toppings and fillings? Do you like moonshine (who doesn’t these days)? Do you like an eating establishment within a stones throw of several specialty drinking establishments? If you answered yes to any or all of these, the recently opened Stillhouse Craft Burgers & Moonshine restaurant might just be for you. I recently attended a media dinner (which I don’t do often) and came away impressed with their selection of moonshine (over 50 different brands, mainly from Georgia) and the flavor combinations of the burgers. The one thing that is painfully obvious from the moment a two patty behemoth, loaded with toppings, hits your plate is that it’s impossible to eat like a normal burger…unless you can unhinge your jaw. This is the Spicy Memphis Pork burger and while it’s damn tasty, it’s a little hard to eat. The only other issue I have is with the reversed bun, which while unique is not functional as it must be removed and inverted.
In addition to the Spicy Memphis, they have a fried oyster burger, a turkey burger for the health conscious, a fried green tomato burger, a duck burger and my favorite, the Steak & Eggs burger which is two seasoned steak patties piled on layers of deviled eggs and green tomato relish…good…lord.
In addition to the burgers above we also had the fried oyster burger, which we topped with a crab cake…why, because we could.
Aside from the burgers, Stillhouse serves a few salads and a variety of sides and appetizers like spicy mac n cheese, moonshine mussels, bacon cream corn, deviled eggs and a few fry creations topped with either melted gouda or pork gravy…if you haven’t figured it out already this place is about excess so don’t be bringing your point counting friends here.
Aside from the burgers, Stillhouse really shines with their selection of moonshines and moonshine libations, like the Carolina Mule which combines lime, mint and ginger with a Carolina moonshine.
We also tried the barrel aged moonshine and the Mountain Sunrise (OJ, homemade grenadine and shine) and would order both again. Stillhouse is a fun place and their drink and burger menus are definitely different. I would suggest coming and splitting two burgers amongst three people and sampling some of their moonshine offerings. It’s also a great spot for late night eats as they’re open until 1:00am most nights and are in the heart of the Buckhead bar district at East Andrews. Next time I’m in Buckhead, it’s past 10:00pm and I’m four+ drinks in…you better believe I’m coming for the pork gravy fries!
