SARKburgers in the news in Honolulu

Honolulu Star Advertiser ran an article today on Washington's fondness for Football Coach Steve Sarkisian, and Shultzy's got to be a part of it.

New Flavor

SEATTLE » Don Schulze knows just how hungry University of Washington football fans are for a winner.

“Our best seller every football game weekend is the ‘Sarkburger’ ” — named for Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian — says the proprietor of Shultzy’s Sausage, an institution on “The Ave.,” as the main thoroughfare in the UW District is known.

The “Sarkburger” — described as “freshly ground top sirloin, swiss cheese, crispy hickory smoked bacon, a sweet pineapple ring and caramelized onion with a Sark-iyaki glaze” — is the creation of the Huskies’ third-year head coach, which these days assures popularity here.

“Sark is young, dynamic and approachable — and he can win,” said Schulze, who said he never offered Willingham a chance to design a signature meal because “he couldn’t win.”
