“Best local old school burgers and Dogs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

Ever heard of the term "hole in the wall"? Well, Ward's Grill in Whiteville NC fits the bill. Opening at 7am to people in line for hamburgers and dogs tell the tale. Stand and order and be on your way. Each day custom ground fresh beef is pattied out and sold just as long as the supply lasts. Usually they run out by no later than 1pm, so do dilly dally or you will be eating elsewhere. Another thing, don't ask for ketchup or lettuce, tomato or mayo, cause you won't find it there. Burgers and dogs come with mustard, chili, (which is great homemade chili), onions and cheese. You can leave off items but that's your choice. Little bags of chips, and bottled drinks can be purchased. But anything else... Get stepping, you won't find it there. What you will find is the most delicious, tender, mouth watering burgers on the planet. Come early and plan to stand in line. You will be rewarded for your wait. Plan to get your supply when the girl says, "what for ya'"? Then salts your burger before she wraps it. A not to be missed stop off of 74/76 highway!
