BGR – “The Burger Joint” Finally Arrives in Mobile

28 May

BGR “The Burger Joint” just opened a few weeks back here in the Mobile area. I was out of town for their Grand Opening, but wanted to check them out at my earliest opportunity. I love burgers. However, I am not a fast food guy.

The interior at BGR is clean, colorful and modern.

They even sell Cheerwine here! That is a big plus in my book.

I ordered the Greek Burger. I’d heard that it was fabulous — and it was. In fact, this burger was featured of Food Network’s Throwdown and defeated one of Bobby Flay’s burger creations.

Hungry now? The Greek Burger is made with fresh ground leg of lamb and artfully seasoned with a mix of cumin, garlic and mint. It is then topped with traditional Greek tzatziki sauce, feta cheese, cucumber slices, and red onion. The fact that this baby is served on a buttery brioche sesame seed bun only makes something truly great even better.

Burgers here are not done on the cheap — and you won’t be out the door in 2 minutes either. It’s all cooked up fresh to order and you CAN taste the difference. Burgers at BGR range between $6.99 and $10.99 and do not include chips or fries. I will surely return to sample burgers like “The Cuban” (topped with pork, ham, pickles, Dijon, and Swiss cheese), “The Wellington” (made with real black truffles), and “The Southwestern.”

Gourmet fries (thin cut sweet potatoes or thick cut Yukon Gold) and Vidalia onion rings at BGR run from $2.89 to $4.49 and can be upgraded to include parmesan, rosemary and roasted garlic (yes!). Shakes (made with Gifford’s and Breyer’s ice cream) are also quite popular. Ask them about the shake flavor of the day.

Burger fans rejoice! BGR is here at last. OMG!
