Can you please help me out?
Sorry, I could not find any sort of recipe for the Dog n Suds "Ranchburger" or "Ranch Burger". I did find a few mentions of it but no detailed description except that a few mentions called it a "BBQ Ranch Burger". I found many more mentions and descriptions of a Dog n Suds "Texas Burger". I even found a possible copycat recipe for the "Texas Burger." The question is: Is the "Texas Burger" just a "Ranch Burger" under a different name?† I could not find an answer. It may be that some D & S locations called it a "Texas Burger" and others called it a "Ranch Burger." However, if the "Ranch Burger" had bbq sauce, then apparently they were not the same.
A "Texas Burger" is described like this: A double-decker cheeseburger with one patty served with Dog n Suds Coney Sauce and the other patty served with something referred to as "special sauce" or "burger sauce." If a "Ranch Burger" IS the same thing as a "Texas Burger", then this might work:
Make yourself a double-decker cheeseburger.
On one deck use Dog n Suds Coney Sauce, for which there is a copycat recipe here: 01-28-2008†
On the other deck, use Dog n Suds "SOP Sauce", 2 recipes here: 03-31-2010
Remember that mayonnaise and "salad dressing" are not the same thing. If you make the one that calls for salad dressing, use "Miracle Whip", if you make the one with mayonnaise, use "Hellman's" or "Kraft".
If that's not it, then I am sorry. It's the best I can come up with. I will post this for reader input. I have heard from former "Dog & Suds" employees in the past, so I might again.
