Carolina Style

'Carolina Style' is an assortment of condiments added to hamburgers or hot dogs, originating in the Piedmont of North Carolina. The traditional condiment combination for Carolina Style is chili and coleslaw, though sometimes onions or mustard can be added as well. This food styling has started to gain national recognition, with major food chains such as Wendy's adding Carolina-styled products. 

The Carolina Style burger was featured on a 2013 episode of the Travel Channel's food-centric program Burgerland, where the host sampled and discussed various versions of the dish from restaurants in Charlotte and Monroe.
