BurgerFi, a franchise that boasts all-natural, grass-fed beef, just opened in Winter Park on the corner of Park Avenue and Fairbanks.
This quick-service restaurant has a pretty basic menu of burgers and hot dogs with a variety of choices of toppings. The set-up is very reminiscent of Pine 22 but without quite as many topping options. They have a number of locations around the country.
Kevin and I went to check out the newest burger joint to hit town, and the place was packed for a weekday. To accommodate a larger number of people, the tables were very close together, so be warned that you’ll be buddying up next to your dining companions and neighbors.
Kevin ordered a double hamburger with grilled onions and lettuce. He said that he enjoyed the burger but prefers both Five Guys and Pine 22.
I ordered their VegeFi burger, which is a quinoa burger with cheddar cheese and toppings on a multi-grain bun.
I really loved my burger. It had a lot of flavor. The outside of the quinoa burger was crisp and the inside was creamy and full of flavor. The texture was really great and paired well with the cheese and bread. I also love Pine 22’s black bean burger, but I may prefer this vegetarian burger to Pine 22’s. It was that good.
My biggest qualm was that they don’t serve their food on plates, so you end up creating a placemat of napkins to eat on.
As a side, we ordered the Cry and Fries, a combo of onion rings and French fries meant to be shared.
Neither was anything spectacular. The onion rings were massive but very greasy. I only ate one before throwing in the towel.
BurgerFi is a nice option compared to all the pricier places lining Park Avenue, especially when you want a quick bite to eat. Rumor has it that their frozen custards are amazing.
What is your favorite type of burger? I love Hillstone’s veggie burger, and Kevin had an amazing burger in Arlington that was a combination of beef and pork.
