Hannah Pugh invented her “HP Burger” recipe while working at her family’s restaurant, Mike’s Country Kitchen, in Pine Hill in Wilcox County, where she’s been co-owner the past five years. The combination of sweet pineapple, crunchy bacon and American cheese, topped with barbecue sauce (she prefers Sweet Baby Ray’s brand) has proven to be very popular with diners.

“I have always enjoyed coming up with new creations for the weekly specials,” Pugh says. The secret to a good burger? She says it’s the flat-top grill they use at the restaurant. “There’s something about cooking it on a flat top; the grease drains off better. We use fresh, 80/20 ground beef and we hand-patty our burgers every day.”

At the restaurant, she works alongside her parents, Mike and June Rush, and her sister Elizabeth Bender. They have a weekly hot bar in addition to daily specials. Pugh also makes her own Boudreaux sauce, a Cajun-inspired sauce she says is “like a ‘comeback sauce,’ but a little different. I’d like to try selling it one day.”
