I see why they were voted Best Burger

The Neon Pig's "Smash Burger" was recently voted "Best Burger in America" by Thrillist. I've eaten many a good burger in my time. One of my favorite burgers from New Orleans made it into the top 4 on the list (The Company Burger). I also place two other burger/slider places in NOLA in my Top... read more

We took out of town guest here to eat lunch because it was just named best burger in america! Well...it fell way short of that! First of all the place is way to small. everyone is almost on top of each other and people are bumping into us while we try to eat. The burger fell WAY short of being... More

My son and his family came to visit from Florida this past summer. While they were here, he and his wife went shopping in Tupelo and ate lunch at the Neon Pig. They are still talking about the "smash" burger. My husband and I were geocaching in Tupelo and decided to eat lunch there and we were not disappointed. The... More

Wow! I was in Tupelo on business and used Trip Advisor to choose a lunch location. The Neon a Pig Cafe is an awesome place. Very quaint and small. Each person is greeted and asked if they have eaten there before, because they then provide you with simple instructions to order you food: sir where you like and order from... More

Lives up to reputation - delicious, moist, smothered in pickled goodness and served on butcher paper. Huge beer selection too - added bonus!

This is a very laid back establishment, small and casual. I got the feeling that a most of the customers were regulars. There's nothing fancy unless it's the selection of beverages - pretty extensive for a restaurant and a town of this size. The waitress was friendly and helped me make my selection. I had the smash burger and was... More

Driving from memphis to Atlanta, and hit Tupelo around lunch time. My son loves burgers so we decided to try the Neon Pig. We ordered the Smashburger and also the daily taco. Both were excellent -- this burger with bits of bacon is probably one of the best any of us has eaten! served on ciabatta roll, which supports the... More

Went by recommendation from waitress that works at another grill we went to. When she told me the Neon Pig just won "best hamburger in America," I knew I had to check this out. I don't know if it's the best in America, but it's the best I ever ate. I also met some great locals that had parents that... More

This is a very small place, not much to look at on the outside, but they know their meats. We ordered the signature Smashburger (several cuts of steak all ground together and "smashed" on the grill). It was easily one of the top 5 burgers my tongue has ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Very small place in a strip mall. Not many places to sit and feels very tight. Does have a couple of small tables outside. Known for their smash burger. It was good but not the best I've had. It really does have quite a bacon\mesquite flavor so some might really love it. The cibatta roll was great. They only have... More
