Dugg Burger

Construction is finished on the new Dugg Burger in Casa Linda Plaza and the sign is up. This morning employees were gathered around the table finishing up training. The location is set to open sometime next week.

Last time we heard from Dugg Burger, they explained their “reversed burger-building process,” in which they dig out the top portion of the bun.

So instead of starting with the patty and then adding toppings, the Dugg team will fill the “dugg out” bun with toppings chosen by guests in a build-as-you-go fashion. Then the burger patty is added hot off the grill after all ingredients are selected.

“This process eliminates the wait that is customary at other burger restaurants and ensures every burger is exactly as the guest wants,” the email states.

There will be twelve toppings, referred to as the “Dugg Dozen,” which includes hickory-smoked bacon, sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions and fire-roasted jalapeños. A thirteenth ingredient, a guest-pick called the “Lucky 13,” will rotate throughout the year.
