Jerry Lawler King burgers hamburgers resteraunt slamburgers

In the mid-70’s Jerry Lawler lent his name a burger restaurant called Smashburger in Memphis, Tennessee and there’s the menu.

Jerry Lawler Slamburger resteraunt

If I was in Memphis in the 70’s, I would be all over this place like white on rice!

And check out those prices! Everything is so cheap that you could in fact eat like a King!

Sadly it is closed and the building is apparently empty.  That’s the crappy part, guys!

    “Yes, I’d like to order the half pint Superstar Bill Sundae.”

    Outside of the main city, Memphis is a pretty depressing town.

    But what’s this? “Gibroni”? Did King give The Rock his Jabroni catchphrase?!?

    • Autrach Sejanoz says:

      The term ‘jabroni’ is/was a common phrase used by wrestlers in the carny talking era. Rocky just liked the sound of it.

  3. Al Boondy says:

    Guessing Lawler himself did the artwork for that poster …

    Also, is “gibroni” an early spelling for “jabroni”? Has the Iron Shiek been lying all this time, claiming that he was the one who originated the term?

  4. Geoff says:

    Guessing also that King was also hardup for a job between wrestling stints. Isn’t that him at the counter pointing to the sign above?

  5. Scrooge McSuck says:

    “Home Made” Chili.

    Comedy that writes itself.

  6. Gotchism For Life says:

    Any truth to the rumor Lawler only wanted girls aged 15-18 working there?

  7. #OPC says:

    I don’t know how I’ve been watching wrestling all this time and have never heard the term, “SLAMburger”.

  8. The Doctor of Style says:

    So this is where those “burger king” taunts originated…

  9. Brian Henegar says:

    “We sell the food so cheap, because the King don’t need the money”…I’m guessing after three divorces, that is no longer the case huh?

  10. Anonymous says:

    “Homemade” being in quotes next to chili is oddly creepy and makes me want to never try that or anything like it ever.

  11. John C says:

    I see Jerry’s tossed salad is a off the menu item that has to be special ordered.

  12. That Don Guy says:

    The Google Maps image is showing the wrong address. 5099 Old Summer Road is now the HighPockets Pool (“and poker”) Hall; apparently, it replaced an earlier pool hall on the site in 1983.
