Who doesn't love a good greasy burger sometimes? Or what about a delicious gyro, Italian sausage or hot dog? Personally I hate fast food restaurants because they are so cookie cutter and often lack flavor and originality. In fact I do my best not to eat at fast food or chain restaurants but prefer to support the local flavor. If that sounds like you and you're craving that fast-food feel, then go to Dog-n-Burger.

Dog-n-Burger is by  no means a fancy place. If you want a nicer atmosphere, go to the other restaurant these people own called No Frill Grill that I have previously blogged about. Dog-n-Burger is a true burger shack complete with bar stools, a patio and picnic tables at which to enjoy your food. Located off a side street in Ghent, it's not on the main drag but more in a residential area so it is never too crowded. The food only takes a flash to fix, so it's a great place to go if you want a quick bite to eat or if you need something after an evening of drinking that just happens to end before 9pm.

The food: the menu is pretty standard with options like the burger, the double burger, the double cheeseburger, the hot Italian Sausage, the hot dog, the gyro, and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. You can get a combo so it comes with a drink and fries.  I had the gyro and it was awesome. Topped with tzaziki sauce and served with lettuce and tomato, it was exactly what I was looking for. My husband had a double cheeseburger and it was everything you want when you order one - juicy, smothered in cheese, and extremely bad for you. We both got fries, the crinkle cut kind, that were hot and fresh out of the fryer. It was a nice day so we sat outside on the patio and ate at a picnic table. 

Dog-n-Burger isn't the normal place I reveiw, but it's not like we can all always eat fine dining. So, if you're looking for that greasy burger or sandwich but hate to contribute to fast food nation, then go to Dog-n-Burger.

Atmosphere: Exactly what you want out of a place
