(AKRON, OHIO) July 19, 2014 - The Akron RubberDucks announced today a new addition to the popular "Extreme Foods" menu.
The new entree is the "Return of the King Burger," a four-ounce burger topped with Boursin cheese, a king crab meat blend, and wine and gold slaw. The homemade coleslaw is mixed cabbage tossed with champagne vinaigrette and seasoned with salt, pepper, and Old Bay Seasoning.
The new burger honors Akron native LeBron James and his recent return to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
