When you stop at the gas station for food, you expect to find chips, candy and even hot dogs.
But at a Chevron station on Chamblee Dunwoody Road, you can get a huge, freshly made hamburger with four beef patties, pickles, cheese, mustard and “sassy” (sweet and salty) sauce on a potato roll.
The Quad burger is the creation of Billy Kramer, owner of NFA Burger. NFA stands for “not fooling around.”
Kramer used to be a sales representative who traveled the country and documented on Instagram the burgers he ate.
But, “I knew I couldn’t be an expert if I couldn’t make one,” Kramer told the AJC in 2018. “I had to be able to have an intelligent conversation about what makes a burger good or bad, and I knew I could only do that if I was in the business in some way and learned how to make a really good burger.”
That’s when NFA Burger was born, first as a pop-up in various places around Atlanta, and now as a fixture in Salim Thobani’s Chevron station at 5465 Chamblee Dunwoody Road.
If a four-patty burger seems a bit much for you, don’t fret. You can get one, two or three instead. The menu also includes the Jersey Dog — an all beef hot dog with pickles mustard and sassy sauce on a potato roll — tots, fries and “Schmoops,” which are house-made minirolls with butter, cream cheese and cinnamon sugar.
The one thing you won’t get Kramer to put on your food, however, is ketchup. Well, actually, he will, but he’ll charge you $1,000,000. There is ketchup available if you want to add it to your burger yourself.
NFA Burger is open 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday; and closed on Sunday and Monday. Kramer’s burgers have a 4.5 star rating on Yelp. Recent reviews include:
