About this Dish

“We use ground turkey in all our locations due to high customer demand for a healthy alternative to high-fat burgers and heavy sandwiches. The flavors in the Dill Dijon Mayonnaise complement the ground turkey. Our guests just love the ground turkey burger menu offering and it has been a consistent winner for us.”  – Restaurant Owner Donna Crivello from Donna’s Cafe in Baltimore, Md.
