#EatHBURG: Outdoor Dining

The weather is heating up in Hattiesburg, and that means one thing: we can finally eat outdoors again! What better way to celebrate the arrival of springtime than grabbing your closest friends and heading out for a burger, cold brew or barbeque? 

Dive headfirst into local flavor with these HBURG restaurants!

Head out on the Keg and Barrel’s back patio for cornhole or sit on the porch under the perfect shade at this local watering hole. With brews from Germany, Ireland, Mississippi breweries, and even some brewed in-house, the Keg’s extensive beer list will have you wanting to try them all. Pair a brew with Debris Fries or the Dirty Diana and you’ve found the perfect Saturday afternoon.
