Fodor's Expert Review Dirty Martin's
This greasy spoon just north of UT campus has been satisfying the guilty pleasures of students (and all walks of life) since 1926. There might not be dirt floors and open flame grills anymore, but the burgers and sides are still classically unpretentious (with no grass-fed menu descriptions), but plenty of flavor (and grease). Sit at the counter to watch the longtime short order chefs at work at the grill, flipping hundreds of burgers, patty melts, and chicken fried steak sandwiches for hungry diehards. The outdoor patio tables fill up fast during UT home games, when the football game is broadcast on large HD TVs. The O.T. Special is a signature and the draft beers seem to taste best in their icy schooners.
