Cheeseburger Booth of Elvis

Field review by the editors.

Tupelo, Mississippi

When Elvis Presley was in elementary school in Tupelo, he liked to stop at nearby Johnnie's Bar-B-Q Drive-In for a cheeseburger and an RC Cola. Johnnie's is still a working burger joint, and one of its well-worn wooden booths is identified as "The Elvis Booth" with a gold plaque. Above it, among much Presleyabilia, hangs a photo of a young Elvis sitting in the very same booth.

You can still order a cheeseburger at Johnnie's, although it no longer sells RC Cola (a bad business decision on someone's part). The place is small, and it's a popular eatery with the locals, so you may not actually get to sit in The Elvis Booth when you visit.
