There's been a trend for new chain restaurants to be more sustainable and eco-friendly, and BurgerFi out of Florida is one of them. To start with, all their burgers use all natural Angus beef. Not only that, they use tables made of recycled wood, and chairs made of recycled Coke bottles. Their fans supposedly use 66% less electricity than normal.
Their most popular burger is the Breakfast All Day.
Other than burgers, they're also known for serving frozen custards - concretes in particular, the frozen custard so thick it's supposed to stay in the cup if you turn it upside down, hence the name "conrete". No, I didn't try flipping it upside down ...
In the one I tried, the vanilla frozen custard is layered with red velvet cake. Other flavors include key lime pie and one with peanut butter, chocolate, and brownie all in one.
Sometimes I crave milkshakes but I stop by telling myself that it's too cold out. Since I'm here for a tasting I had an excuse to go ahead and finally get a milkshake! I got a coffee shake while my friend ordered the chocolate. Hit the spot! Of course, the shakes here are made with their frozen custard.
Just want a soda? On top of the Freestyle Cola machine, they have Mexican Coke!
The regular BurgerFi burger is a double patty with lettuce and tomato but there's an option to build your own burger.
Vegetarians rejoice. Their veggie patty is made of quinoa and it's one of the better vegetarian patties I've tried, cooked so that the outer layer is crispy. Here, it's served with a lettuce wrap, which you can get with any of their burgers (I was going to just say "protein style", but is that an In-N-Out only term?)
Check out their (not-so)Secret menu, which includes things like 1/2 + 1/2 burger (one beef patty, one quinoa patty) or the Hippie Veggie (quinoa burger on potato bun).
There are also hot dog options like this Chicago Dog complete with pickles and hot peppers and poppy seed bun.
The Urban Fries are topped with parmesan shavings and aioli, and a regular order is massive enough to feed 3-4 people. Here's glass of beer as a size comparison.
BurgerFi also serves local beers, so the menu varies by location. Of course, since Boston is home to the one that started the craft beer movement, many of the options here involve a Samuel Adams beer.
