It’s not the greatest picture, but it is one of the greatest burgers I’ve eaten in awhile. I have lived in North Carolina for seven years, but up until yesterday, I never tried a “Carolina Burger.” To die for. Head over to Salem Street Pub in historic, adorable Apex, NC. You won’t find a better burger. You’ll need a few big napkins. You’ll need to go to the bathroom and wash your hands because they will be covered in chili and slaw. Don’t let someone take a picture or videotape you eating it. It was done to me. It’s just wrong.
What’s in it? Here’ s great link to learn how to put it together. It’s a creation. http://www.ourkrazzykitchen.com/2011/10/carolina-all-way-burger.html
It sells. I loved the atmosphere although I think the place could use a little help from The Right Hue and get a new color palette. Especially the brown bathrooms. Love their chalkboard tables though. We were drawing in five minutes since there’s a blurb about a drawing contest with a $25 winner. Not exactly where my talent lies, but I do love contests.
It’s a flower in case you cannot tell.
I’ve been looking for a good pub in the area. This is it. Live music Friday and Saturday nights, a place to hang out, grab a beer and burger. What’s better than that? Michael, John and Scott wrote a hysterical review of their trip to Salem Street Pub for their hilarious blog about burgers, thestraightbeef.com. These guys are serious beef conniseurs.

I know a thing or two about burgers. I’m with the boys on this one.
