Chandler Goff, owner of Mulligan’s in Decatur, GA, was recently on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to share his gift to human civilization – “The Hamdog.”


The Hamdog is “a hot dog padded with sliced cheese and a half pound of hamburger, dropped in the deep fryer, bedded like the reclining Olympia on a hoagie roll, then lavished with chili, bacon, onions and a fried egg.”


Another item on the Mulligan’s menu – “The Luther Burger” – is “a bacon cheeseburger with a sliced, glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut for a bun, supposedly a favorite of Luther Vandross.”


With all the hype surrounding the so-called “obesity epidemic,” it’s comforting to know that culinary pioneers such as Chandler Goff still exist.


I hope to one day be a Hamdog Pilgrim.
