Review of BurgerFi

BurgerFi
Ranked #54 of 101 Restaurants in Leawood
Description: Your local BurgerFi isn’t some industrialized fast food giant. They were started in a gourmet kitchen, by gourmet Chefs. Not knowing fast food, the back of the house is built to be less burger joint, more five-star restaurant. When they needed a sauce, the Chefs didn’t call a food supplier. They started chopping. Mixing. Cooking. Making better choices. BurgerFi is better to people: serving only the finest natural, certified angus burgers, dogs, hand-cut fries, frozen custard, craft beer, wine and more. They’re better to the environment: each location is built to environmentally sustainable best practices and includes earth-friendly elements. And, they’re better to animals: sourcing from one of the best ranches in the country. Where cattle roam free. Breathe mountain air. Eat grass and are treated humanely. BurgerFi never waivers from this high standard. This doesn't come easy. Certainly not cheap. Truth is there are simpler ways to put a burger on a bun. But, they're not better.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Went to the 435 special the other day-burgers for $4.35. Expected it to be very crowded, which it was; didn't expect to be in such horrible humid outdoors to wait and eat. Didn't expect it to be SO noisy but once again, another new restaurant with just pipes for a ceiling. Physical location is great; indoor set up is not: If you are on one half of the restaurant, you must travel through the line of people for drinks, catsup, mustard, napkins and plasticware.

After we waited in the long line, the register employee couldn't seem to hear us and forgot the tomatoes,needed help in figuring out what Birch beer was (listed) which we still didn't get, charged us for 5 drinks instead of 3. Oy vey. Someone took care of that later for us but we had to find someone.

The burgers were AWEsome, including the quinoa-yum! Just TINY! I could've eaten 10 of them if they were a bit less pricey.

I would go back more often if I could eat on real plates, have real silverware and glasses, have a side included of some kind, and be served, for that price. Otherwise, I'd probably rather spend the $ somewhere I don't have to serve myself. My restaurant trips need to be a small vacation!

“Hohum Burger”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

We so wanted to like this new burger spot in the trendy Park Place shopping area, but were very disappointed. We thought the burger was very ordinary and pricey. With more than a half dozen trendy burger spots (aside from McD, Burger King and Wendy's) to choose from in our area, BurgerFi has some very stiff competition.

Here are some of the reasons we won't return ... Aside from better, cheaper choices:

The seating area is very crowded, noisy and chaotic. This is not a place to relax, have a nice conversation, and enjoy your meal.

The self-serve soda dispensers are difficult to use and tend to bunch up during peak times, especially with people getting refills along with the newly served. Our soda came out of the machine "flat" and was undrinkable.

BurgerfFi may serve high quality products, but all of the above leaves us wanting. We will try one of the other more dependable spots up the street in the future when we want a burger.
