HIRAM, Ga. - When you think of Big Sexy, is longtime MLB pitcher Bartolo Colon the first thing that comes to mind?
Move over Bartolo, there’s a new Big Sexy in town, and by in town I mean in downtown Hiram, G-A. The Big Sexy is not technically “on the menu” at Willie T’s Dawgs & Burgers, and if you want one, you have to ask for it by name.
It’s definitely big beginning with “the bun,” or as I like to call it, two grilled cheese, chili, and onion sandwiches made with Texas Toast. In the middle, a large beef pattie with mustard and more chili, and then stacked high. It is definitely as sexy as it is big.
There’s a catch, The Big Sexy is not technically on the menu at Willie T’s. Relax, it is always available, but there’s a catch, you have to ask for it by name.
Four more things…
- Full disclosure, Ron Gant and Willie T’s owner Allen Wilson played minor league baseball together many moons ago.
- The aforementioned Ron Gant will splurge and eat a giant, greasy burger from time to time.
- There is an abandoned Speak Easy below the restaurant and it is supposedly haunted by a former owner, Archie Smith.
- I am currently lobbying to have the name of the restaurant changed from Willie T’s Dawgs & Burgers to Willie T’s Burgers & Dawgs.
