Street Team Steven went here to try not only the burger but the tenderloin sandwich, too. I will be 100% upfront here, I’ve had better burgers from Nick’s than we did on this trip. The ratings were for this trip, no matter how much I’d had before (and I have had Nick’s several times).
That was a darn fine burger and I’m so glad I went back. Double patties, mayo, pickles, tomato, onion, and lite mustard. King’s Hot Dogs is located at 1009 Bethania Rural Hall Rd, in Rural Hall. This was recommended to me by my friend nick’s old fashioned hamburgers Paul Jones and while I have eaten at Hero House before, it has been a long, long, long time. Mostly because it’s on Stratford Road and can be a pain to get in and out of. I just went for a late lunch and missed most of that traffic.
It was seasoned so well and the ingredients so fresh, that it made me go, “mmm” out loud. Stephanie had one, as well and she agreed with me. When we drive by here going to her mom’s, I think, “man, I could go for a Greek Guys’ Burger.” Greek Guys Grill is located at 2545 Somerset Center Dr, WSNC. These burgers were different kinds of burgers going up against each other. The list had specialty burgers, pub burgers, diner burgers, weird burgers, and so on. This year, I decided that to be a contender for the list, it was going to have to be a “standard” ingredient burger.
Since buying the restaurant, Haynes, who is a former commercial insurance industry employee, said he has changed little. They still hand-pat the burgers, make their own chili and ranch dressing and source as much other food as possible from local businesses. For example, the pimento cheese and slaws used on many of the sandwiches are made at Lexington Style Trimmings restaurant. On this tour, I am sorry to say that I had some of the worst burgers I’ve ever had in my life.
