It was my understanding that, as of September, North Carolina changed it's rules to finally allow restaurants to serve rare burgers as long as a formulaic warning is printed on its menu. For at least the second time today, I encountered a restaurant that is unaware of/unwilling to comply with the new standard.
I had lunch today at the Red, Hot and Blue on Falls in Raleigh. One person tried to order a rare burger and was told in no uncertain terms that the kitchen would not serve a burger any less than well done. Not even medium, only well done. The proper warning was printed on the menu.
I don't even like rare burgers but this is ridiculous. We had a similar problem at the Leesville Taproom. At least they allowed medium burgers. Has anyone else encountered this problem since the rule change?
