A while back a friend and I were craving good old American comfort food. What does that translate to for us? Burgers and fries, baby! So we set out to eat at BurgerFi, which is a chain (not a huge fan of chains), but good nonetheless. I’d never actually gotten food from there so I was eager to try a few things. We talked to the person at the register and after some deliberation settled on a New York Style Hot Dog, A Double Bacon Cheeseburger (heart attack waiting to happen!) and “Urban” Fries from their “secret” menu.
We were eager to try the food, so those pictures above almost didn’t happen. I set in on my hot dog. It was juicy and flavorful and the kraut on top tasted really good! I mean, it wasn’t a mind-blowing hot dog experience but it was just what I had been craving. I also was able to snag a bit of my friend’s burger and that thing was delicious. It was juicy and flavorful, like the hot dog, and the bread was the perfect vessel for holding it all together. That didn’t last long for sure.
After that, we devoured the “urban” fries which are their fries with Parmesan and herbs and garlic aioli. I kind of got my hopes up a little high here. While they were good, there was just something about them that didn’t make them amazing. Like there was a missing flavor or something. Not sure I’d order this again.
Overall, I really liked BurgerFi. I think that they have good and interesting menu options and that they’re a solid choice for some good American eating.
P.S. Try a frozen custard the next time you go, it’s delish!
