Spend time roaming the historic downtown square, and at some point, you’ll be tempted to sample a Fayetteville institution, the world-famous Slawburger.
What is a Slawburger you may ask? Years ago, Lee McAlister’s great-grandfather had the brilliant idea of putting his mustard-based slaw on top of his grilled hamburgers, and the rest is history. The slaw adds a sweet and sour flavor that is definitely unique. In fact, once a year it is celebrated at the annual Slawburger Festival.
Today, you can grab this signature Fayetteville burger at a number of restaurants. Where can you find the best Slawburger? Well, that can be a nice debate. One thing is for sure, they are found only in Fayetteville.
