Everyone who's had the Bacon Burger at the Avenue Pub in downtown Tuscaloosa's Temerson Square knows they're delicious, but according to a story published by BuzzFeed this week, they're the very best Alabama has to offer.

BuzzFeed said they worked with Yelp to aggregate restaurant reviews and find the highest rated burger joint in every state and in D.C.

Topping the list for the Yellowhammer State was Tuscaloosa's own Avenue Pub, whose handmade bacon burgers have been a favorite of patrons since the restaurant opened in 2014.

Craig Williams, who owns and operates the Avenue Pub, said he was honored by the positive reviews that landed his burger on BuzzFeed's list.

"It feels pretty amazing to be on this list," Williams said Tuesday. "We have been so fortunate to gain this type response from the Tuscaloosa community and we have a fantastic staff that is dedicated to taking care of our guests.We just celebrated 5 years of business and I couldn't be happier with where we are."

If you've never had a burger at the Avenue Pub, stop by sometime and see what all the fuss is about. If you're already familiar with how good the food is there, this is a great excuse to stop in and experience it again.
