NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Combining two unlikely foods together seems to be all the rage in restaurants these days, and Nac Burgers has joined in on the fun.
On Wednesday, they unveiled their latest creation, the Donut Burger.
Owner Billy Huddleston Jr. came up with the idea when someone brought donuts in for the employees.
“At first it was a joke, but then the more I got to thinking about it," Huddleston said. "You don't see a donut burger just everyday, especially around here.”
The burger is made with an all beef patty, cheese, bacon, a fried egg, and donuts in place of traditional buns. The experiment was soon turned into a menu item after employees tested the burger.
"I was skeptical at first," said Nac Burger employee Courtney Taylor. "But once you try it, you're going to want it again. It's so delicious!”
After the first customer of the day tried the burger, he seemed to have the same reaction.
“Well I was a little apprehensive of what it would taste like," said Nac Burger customer J.P. Calloway. "But when you bite into it, it's got the sweetness of the donut that
goes rather well with the bacon and the eggs.”
One negative some of the potential customers have expressed is that it seems very unhealthy.
“A lot of people say, 'Oh it's not healthy,'” but it's a one time thing; you can try it and get it every now and then,"" Taylor said.
"Going out to eat it about having fun and letting loose. It's okay to live a little sometimes," Huddleston said. "If you want to eat healthy, stay home and eat a salad," he joked.
Nac Burger said they just hope people are open minded and adventurous and come try their new concoction.
