Comment: I flew to Georgia this weekend to attend a wedding and realized I was about 3 miles from the Marietta Diner, an eatery of "Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" fame. For some reason I was under the impression that their burgers were to die for... I should have read what Guy Fieri recommended : (  The burger was unexceptional. A typical mediocre diner burger you would get just about anywhere. The meat was a very fresh coarse ground beef, tender and flavorful enough. I ordered mine med/rare and got served medium - ouch. As I was eating my sandwich, I noticed a man at the table next to us being served the homemade chicken pot pie and I was floored. It was huge, served in a bowl with a homemade flaky crust; it looked amazing. Then I saw what looked like beef stew over egg noodles, again, amazing. This is when I realized there is more to the Marietta Diner than their cheeseburger - a lot more. Overall, I just can't give this burger more than a 7.5/10.  The next time I'm at the Marietta Diner, I'll try to turn off my burger tunnel vision.
  
Below you'll also see my son's more insightful menu selection... the Caribbean Monte Cristo - a wonderful  sandwich of Turkey, Ham, melted Swiss & Cheddar Cheese wrapped in a Tomato Basil Tortilla, Beer Battered and Deep Fried, served with Pesto Mayonnaise & French Fries, very nice.
