Unique Burgers in Hattiesburg to Mix Up Your Takeout

Burgers are an American classic, and make a perfect takeout meal. If you like your burgers a little more creative, though, never fear. Several spots near our apartments in Hattiesburg serve up delicious, unusual takes on this American staple. Here’s where to pick up unique burgers in Hattiesburg:

Movie Star Restaurant

A local favorite, Movie Star Restaurant serves up Southern hospitality and comfort food, “like your momma made it.” The family-owned restaurant got its name ten years ago from its first building, the Movie Star lingerie factory. They make a Southern version of a burger called Hamburger Steak. It’s a ground sirloin patty smothered in a gravy with onions and mushrooms, minus the bun. You may need a knife and fork to eat it, but it’s one of the best unique burgers in Hattiesburg. The restaurant offers curbside pickup, so call ahead to place your order.  

Gold Post Sandwich House

The burgers at Gold Post Sandwich House have a New Orleans twist: they’re po’boys. The Lowry family, who have owned Gold Post since 1971, make sure to bring Louisiana authenticity to their fusion creations. The beef patty comes “dressed,” which means lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo, plus ketchup, mustard, and onions. French bread with a thick crust, baked in New Orleans, makes for a truly authentic po’boy. Call to place a takeout order, and pick it up through the drive-through window. Or you can order delivery on Waitr or GrubHub.  

Ed’s Burger Joint

Ed’s Burger Joint sticks to traditional burgers — but with several unexpected combinations. The Jam Burger comes with bacon jam, shredded cheddar, and grilled onions. Cheese lovers should go for the Heavy Eddie: two Angus patties with American cheese, Ed’s Grill Sauce, bacon, and onions, all tucked between two grilled cheese sandwiches. Local chef and author Robert St. John owns Ed’s, and he makes sure to only serve the best. The beef is fresh, never frozen, and the buns come from the local bakery, Breadsmith. Choose no-contact pickup with curbside service or delivery from Waitr. 

Another night, consider ordering in the best fried chicken in Hattiesburg. The area offers lots of great restaurants and fun activities. Contact us today for more information about our Hattiesburg apartments at Breckenridge Park.
