Why is Macon Interesting?

Originally opened in 1976, The Rookery was purchased in 2009 and has led the revitalization of downtown Macon.

During an era that saw Jimmy Carter ascend to the White House and Macon’s own Capricorn Records release hit after hit making music history, the Rookery was just being born. Today the Rookery bustles on, serving Allman Burgers and Jimmy Carter shakes to Maconites and travelers from far and wide. Voted Best Burger in town and featured in Garden and Gun’s “Guide to the South’s best Burgers 2014,” the Rookery’s dining area, outside patio, and renowned bar are always bustling with satisfied patrons. Other noteworthy features are the onion rings, hand-cut fries, milkshakes, and extensive craft beer list. The Rookery does not accept reservations.
