Burger Warfare

Am I the only one that's the least bit excited in this new restaurant called Burger Warfare? I keep checking for an opening date, but it seems to be there's no definite date yet (does it seem like an inordinately long wait to open a business, or am I just hungry?). Did it open, and no one told me? I love the artwork that they're doing on Facebook, but what I'm really wondering about is if it's going to be any good.

Statistically, the odds aren't in their favor. While we have our share of okay burger restaurants, even good hamburgers, there's none in Greensboro that are great. Even the legendary McPhersonator (No. 2 on my list of best burgers in NC), isn't a tangible: I'm-going-to-crave-this-when-I-move sandwich. It's a once a year sandwich. There is of course a sliver of hope that they get it right. All I ask for is a single chili-cheeseburger with actual good chili. Almost every chili in North Carolina is horrid (please no beans). I really want this place to be amazing. I'm excited, but I don't want to be let down. Not to mention that they have very stiff competition just a few miles down the road at Johnson's. I really can't see how they're going to beat the whole fresh slaughtered take on the hamburger? Please don't make this another attempt on gourmet burgers. I want push-cart, bloody, medium cooked, cheesy, gooey, and delicious burgers on soggy buns. No plates, just wax paper and a handful of napkins.

If this really is a war, how do we decide who wins? Perhaps its just a gimmick (a good one at that), but to suggest you've got the gumption to title a restaurant in a way which suggests superiority (that's sort of the point of war) takes a lot of guts. Bravo to you, and good luck! I can't wait to try it!
