Del Ray Restaurant Embraces Every Alexandria Controversy in a New Contentious Sandwich

Holy Cow Del Ray has taken all of the outrage and fury of Alexandria’s most controversial issues and put them between two buns.

The restaurant at 2312 Mount Vernon Avenue announced its new “burger of the moment,” the Seminary Road-Dockless Scooter-Waterfront Development-Halal Butcher-Bike Lane Sandwich, on Facebook.

The creation features a grilled chicken breast and melted jack cheese on a toasted potato roll topped with bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickled onion and Miracle Whip.

The restaurant acknowledged in the post that the Miracle Whip — a cheap alternative to mayonnaise — was a fittingly controversial decision to represent the burger’s conflicted name. Some commenters argued that naming a chicken sandwich a burger was the more controversial decision.

The sandwich costs $8.95.
