Don't Go Home Without
Created in 1904 by "Uncle" Fletcher Davis, the first hamburger originated right here in Athens, TX. Hotel guests should make it a point to try this world-famous burger during their stay in East Texas. It will be hard to go back to other burgers!
During your visit, remember that dress can be casual and there should be plenty of time allowed for "East Texas Time", which is many minutes behind the rest of the state. At our Athens, TX hotel we enjoy a much slower, more relaxing pace than others.
