Yes, that is a chicken fried burger, and it also happens to be Black Sheep Lodge's Eater Burger. Available starting today until Tuesday, May 3, it costs $7.99 and consists of a "100% fresh-ground Angus beef patty, hand-breaded and crispy-fried to golden-brown perfection, and then smothered in homemade, buttermilk-bacon gravy and served on a toasted white or wheat bun." It comes with your choice of side. Options!
