Maybe there is a Southern Pines resident who can help me come up with the name of the restaurant I stumbled into last Sunday. It was one of the only places in town (the quaint shopping district section of Broad St.) that was open for Sunday lunch. The location is on the Southeast corner of SE Broad St., near the one-way/two-way split and a few doors up from a coffee shop. It's a sports bar that serves a full menu lunch. Plenty of TV's showing football on a Sunday.
My burger had a flavor combination I used to get in California at the Carl's Jr. chain. Burger, bacon, and barbeque sauce. To complete the "Western bacon burger" (the old chain product name) you choose onion rings as your included side and put them on the burger in place of the raw onion slices the restaurant tries to foist on you. The burger was excellent quality, and not overcooked at all when I requested that they go as pink as the cook was willing to risk it.
I love that combination of flavors on my burger and with the nice juicy mess it made, I was in heaven. I'll be going back (and this time I'll note the name of the place).
