Dyer’s Famous Burgers – The History

Did you know that the very first burgers were fried in skillets?

Long ago in 1912, Elmer "Doc" Dyer opened a local restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee and continued using this unique way of cooking burgers in a skillet. This created the famous Dyer’s burger that is still served today. Dyer’s famous burgers are still prepared in the “ageless” grease generated by the cooked burgers each day. This Dyer’s tradition generated myths for over 90 years. The legend has it that the famous Dyer’s grease hasn’t been changed for over 40 years. Truthfully, the method used to cook Dyer’s famous burgers produces new grease from the cooked burgers which is strained, sauteed and flavored every day. Dyer’s old fashioned cooking method produces the most unique and tasty burgers found anywhere in the world.

The legend of Dyer’s "ageless" grease endures with our hamburgers cooked in the legendary grease transported via Memphis police escort to it’s various local restaurant locations over the past 90 plus years.
