Taziki's Spreading Southern Love This SummerTaziki’s Mediterranean Café is tapping into its founder’s roots by combining Southern and Greek staples to introduce the Southern-Style Lamb Burger. The summer offerings don’t stop there, as Taziki’s also innovated a Greek play on the classic Cobb salad to introduce a new level of Southern comfort.

“Our founder and Chief Culinary Officer, Keith Richards, continues to innovate and deliver creativity in our modern Mediterranean menu,” said Taziki’s CEO Dan Simpson. “These two new limited-time offerings are no exception. We are also very pleased to once again partner with the American Lamb Board and feature 100% American lamb in our delicious burgers.”

From June 12 to September 3, every location of the acclaimed fast-casual Mediterranean brand will feature a Southern-Style Lamb Burger and an Athens Cobb Salad on its menu.

The Southern-Style Lamb Burger is packed with two griddled-cooked seasoned American lamb patties on a toasted kaiser bun with spicy pimento cheese, sliced tomato and grilled red onions with a choice of side, starting at $12.49.

The Athens Cobb Salad is filled with fresh mixed lettuces, diced tomatoes, marinated garbanzo beans, crumbled feta, pickled red onions, crispy bacon and a sliced egg, topped with Taziki’s Greek Yogurt Ranch dressing, starting at $8.75.
