CHARLOTTE, NC (Jane Wester/Charlotte Observer) -

Though the Charlotte-based restaurant Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar is best known for burgers and milkshakes, it’s a breakfast item that attracted criticism this weekend.

The dish includes eggs, jalapeno peppers, jalapeno bacon and Pepper Jack cheese, with salsa and sour cream on top.

Its name on the menu? The “Border Patrol scramble.”

People have taken to Facebook and Twitter to criticize the name, calling it “racist” and insensitive to immigrant families.

Activist Andrea Pino objected to the name on Twitter. “Way to reflect today’s America,” she said.

Bad Daddy’s has replied to complaints on Twitter and Facebook, asking people to reach out via direct message.

The restaurant did not respond to a request for comment from the Observer Sunday.
