“Our team has been working on these creations for months to perfect the steak to bacon ratio (65% steak burger, 35% ground bacon) so that the incredible flavors perfectly compliment each other for a uniquely amazing taste.,” said Gary Huether, Jr., Arooga’s co-founder and president. “Bacon is more popular than ever and our burgers are the bomb already. We wanted to give our guests what they want in an Arooga’s sort of way.”

The Bacon Grind Burgers will also be available, as part of Arooga’s new menu, at the brand’s upcoming location in Uncasville, Connecticut, planned for a March opening as part of the 15-unit franchise agreement with Mohegan Tribe for the New England area.

“Arooga’s simply loves to blow our guests’ minds with innovative food, especially wings and burgers, and our new Bacon Grind Burgers will do just that,” Huether, Jr. continued. “We have always had a ‘Why Not’ attitude in the kitchen. If it’s cool and tastes great, it’s going to end up on the Arooga’s menu.”
