The Hamdog And Luther Burger Are Killing Off Southerners

A restaurant in Georgia, USA is serving what has to be the unhealthiest meals going. The Hamdog is a hot dog wrapped by a beef patty that's deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions and served on a hoagie bun. It's also topped with a fried egg and two fistfuls of fries!

This description is part of an article on how Southerners (living in what's called the "Stroke Belt") are not eating healthily enough. Instead they are frying everything and smothering it with gravy. Another delicacy mentioned in the article is a 'Luther Burger' which is "a bacon-cheeseburger served on a Krispy Kreme doughnut bun".

Uhhh... to the last comment, unless Decatur magically got transported twenty minutes away from Athens then you sir are comepletely wrong. I am the Gen. Mgr. at Mulligans in Decatur, which is proudly "Home of the Hamdog". I hope that you come to Atlanta to have one, not that bogus athens location. Hugs and kisses

Hey Flathead Mike,

I read about the Luther Burger and the Ham Dog now my friend and I are trying to plan a trip to Decatur. We live in Baltimore. And yes I can back you up, its in Decatur, I already have directions. You guys should have mail order delivery of the raw product and directions on how to make one. Now a Luther Burger sounds pretty straight forward, but the Ham Dog could be a challenge to make.

I will see you one of these days.....keep the strokes to a minimum.

Flathead Mike

Well Brian I look forward to you and your friend coming to see us one day. We have a Myspace site (unsder Mulligans of course), so look it up and drop us a line. I'd love to send you the raw product with directions, however I really don't think that the ingrediants would last the trip. Plus half the fun is eating it here at Mulligans. will be up soon so keep a lookout kiddies.

hugs and kisses,
Flathead Mike, General Mgr. and jackass of all trades.

I've got a fair following of people here:

Who would LOVE to roadtrip one day for that. Unfortunatly, most of us do not have roadtripping ability currently. :(

We're huge fans of all this 'unhealthy' food :D (and no we're not huge people)

I now am part owner of a bar in the East Atlanta Village. We serve the Hamdog but call it "The Mulligan".
Come see us to try one or email me if you want the recipe.
