Local restaurant serves magical burgers
BY MARY SLADE DUKE and MARIA PROKOPOWICZ
While us editors may disagree on some things, we can both agree that we love food and there is no better food to enjoy with your friends than downtown Greenville’s Sup Dogs.
Don’t let the name fool you; when you go to Sup Dogs, you don’t get a hot dog. You order the best creation known to the culinary world: the bacon cheese fry burger. This mouthwatering burger is not just a burger, it’s an experience. It is everything it sounds like and more. It has the power to change the world. One BCFB could unite Congress, stop world hunger, and even put a smile on Vladimir Putin’s face.
The world’s juiciest, most succulent beef patty is topped with, well, the food of the gods: bacon cheese fries. They are sent straight from heaven, and when topped on a delicious burger, you get the best of both worlds. The hamburger buns are decorated with the perfect amount of ranch and their famous Sup Dogs sauce.
When the burger is served, the top bun is left off of the burger so you can take in just what it has to offer. Our hearts begin to beat a little faster as the scent wafts up from the basket and we finally see our heart’s desires in front of us. The ranch is always in a perfect “Z” shape on the top bun while the bacon cheese fries and Sup Dogs sauce are embracing each other on the bottom bun.
The result is, without exaggeration, breathtaking. We literally don’t breathe when we eat this. There’s no time, because we’re busy stuffing our faces.
When one bites into a BCFG, not only does the eater grow wings, somewhere in the world, a miracle happens. It is a beautiful thing, knowing that just eating a burger can create something so wonderful in the world.
Often times, a few tears are shed over the course of this meal, beginning with the first sight of the masterpiece, to the realization that it will soon be somewhere, deep in our stomachs.
At the end of the meal, although we are stuffed to the point of explosion, we cannot help but feel somewhat empty at the disappearance of the BCFB.
The moment you realize your beautiful creation is gone is sad, but when you look down at your stomach, it’s even sadder. However, needless to say, this treat is worth the guilt.
When you see this hole-in-the-wall college hangout, you don’t expect to be blown away. When you walk out of Sup Dogs, though, you realize what you’ve been missing all your life.
This burger beats any of its competitors by a landslide. You simply can’t find a BCFB like this one anywhere in eastern North Carolina. It’s filled with everyone’s favorites; from beef to bacon to cheese to French fries, there is something for everyone.
One’s first BCFB is life changing. It will open your eyes to new possibilities. Like us, you will probably make it a priority to eat it as often as possible. You may find yourself dreaming of it or stalking the Sup Dogs twitter page, longingly staring at the drool-inducing pictures they tweet. It’s normal, we do it. There is nothing like this original burger.
