History of the Pimento Burger
Numerous interesting developments resulted from the SFA's Pimento Cheese Invitational.
Two of our members -- Jim 'N Nick's of Birmigham and Memphis Minnie's of San Francisco -- have plans to add pimento burgers to their menus. (Harper's of Charlotte and beyond already features one.) And just this morning we heard from the daughter of J.C. Reynolds, proprietor of the late Dairy Bar of Columbia, S.C., whom many cite as the "inventor" of the pimento burger. Donations to the SFA of photographs and film relating to the Dairy Bar are forthcoming.
