**Boston Burger Company was sweet enough to host me last week. I am a huge Davis Square goer and had been meaning to stop in for a long time, but hadn’t had the chance. While our food was comped, all opinions expressed are my own. Thank you so much for having me in, guys! **
As the size of my thighs will attest, I LOVE food. I’m thinking about my next meal while eating my current meal. I am unapologetic about both of these things 🙂 While I don’t generally eat a ton of red meat, when I want a burger, I WANT A BURGER. With cheese. And toppings. And fries. And I want it served with a delicious beverage. Well, all of my burger wishes were granted during this Tuesday night dinner. I’m an adventurous eater and since I was given this lovely opportunity to check out Boston Burger Co, I decided I would try something I wouldn’t find anywhere else which was the Vermonster [“sauteed granny smith apples and red onion, bacon, maple mayo, cheddar”]. Oh, wow, was I glad I did! The combo of flavors was unique, but played off each other very well. I guess it should be a no-brainer, since many of the flavors are found in breakfast offerings, but if you’re still hesitant to try them via a burger, don’t be. My dinner companion (my BFF) had the Buffalo Burger [“buffalo sauce, crumbled blue cheese, diced celery, boney’s special sauce”] which was out of this world as well. I am a buffalo and blue cheese snob and they clearly took both seriously. If neither of these sound up your alley, there is tons to choose from on their large menu which includes more than just burgers and fries. We already discussed bringing the guys back with us since we know they’ll be fans too. Next time, I’m going for The Sophie [“prosciutto, goat cheese, candied walnuts, fig jam, arugula tossed with lemon vinaigrette and drizzled with a balsamic reduction”]. Or maybe The King [“peanut butter, bacon, fried bananas dusted in cinnamon and sugar“]. Or…
Alongside our tasty main courses, we tried the garlic parmesan fries. The word “fries” is really an understatement though, as they were generously cut wedges of potato working the perfect crispy on the outside-melt in your mouth on the inside balance.
To wet our whistle, we ordered cranberry margaritas. YUM! Definitely recommend. If you’re more of a burger and beer type, they got you covered on that front too.
Sorry the picture quality on this post isn’t the best! I was having a hard time with my camera and the lighting . Don’t let that deter you in the least though, this place is delicious and fabulous!
I visited the location at 37 Davis Square in Somerville (there are two other locations in Cambridge and Boston). Among other accolades, Boston Burger Co has been featured on “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”, “The Phantom Gourmet”, and won Rachael Ray’s Battle of the Best Burger.
