“The Boston Burger Company”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The smallest entree, the Boston Burger was large, maybe 8 oz. The bun was larger, about 5” across and thick, made of processed bread flour, not a whole-grain artisanal bakery bun at all, which is what you’d expect at that price. Although everything about the Boston Burger restaurant points to a deli influence, no deli pickles were served or offered with the meal. The requested mustard was served in a small open bowl that had been sitting around for quite a while, judging by the discolored membrane on top. The potoato chips were more interesting than the bun and made of an unidentifiable vegetable, probably some kind of yam or sweet potato, cut thick and over salted. The iceberg lettuce was plentiful but unusable as the large, curly piece must have been a half to ¾”thick. I have a fairly accommodating mouth, but, with the thick-cut tomato and piles of Vidalia onion slices, I would NOT have been able to get it around THAT burger and would have been reduced to nibbling around the edges like a demented beaver. The Killer Bee? Not in this lifetime! If you have to eat it like a sit-down meal, why call it a sandwich? Next time, it’s the Kids Burger for me!

“Great Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I've been to this place a couple times now and these are some of the tastiest burgers I've had in recent memory.

Where they really shine is the variety of styles and toppings.
