It?s a restaurant named for dumplings and known for burgers.
However, Dotty Dumpling?s Dowry kitchen manager Benny Roe has a no-fail philosophy for his cooks.
?Everything's good with bacon,? Roe said.
And Roe lives it. Most of the burgers are already topped with bacon, and if they?re not, they have the option to add slices.
However, putting bacon on nearly everything on the menu has a price, and that price is rising.
?Over the last couple of months, we've seen upwards of 20 percent increases on bacon and all pork products with that virus, and it's really difficult with prices right now,? Roe said.
That virus is Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea, and the disease has killed millions of young pigs across the country.
Roe said the restaurant now shells out $9 to $10 a pound for its high-quality bacon, which has forced cooks to cut back on bacon on certain dishes and forced Roe to raise the price of meals.
