Welcome Home Super Cam!
When preparing for a Homecoming, perhaps a little Dab will do ya. So says Hickory Tavern, the Carolinas’ absolute go-to game-day destination, which is reviving a crowd favorite dish as it welcomes Superman home with a burger named in Cam Newton’s honor: affectionately and rightfully so …The Dab Burger.
Carolina Panthers fans universally recall Newton as the franchise’s most charismatic and an NFL record-setting quarterback. Guess what peeps: he is back and so is the burger.
“There is only one #1,” quipped Hickory Tavern founder Brad Smith. “Cam has never left the hearts of Carolinians. Panther die-hards will never forget the 15-1 2015 season and that MVP and Super Bowl year. More importantly, we fondly recall his philanthropic efforts. He defines the Carolinas and we are excited to honor him.”
At the height of Newton’s and the Panthers success, the beloved Hickory Tavern, a Carolina restaurant gem, created The Dab Burger. The Dab Burger features an extra dab of mustard in order to honor the quarterback who has more fun celebrating first downs, touchdowns and wins than anyone in the history of the league.
The Dab Burger, priced at $9.50, will be available on game days at the brand’s 23 Carolina (North and South) locations.
Hickory Tavern CEO and President Paul Baldasoro put it perfectly: “The magic is back and so is The Dab Burger. We are your game day headquarters and we look forward to you joining us. There really is no better place to watch the games as we cheer on our Panthers together. Thank you, Carolinas and welcome home, Cam!”
