I have been a little behind on my tweeting lately, we are moving out of our condo in a few weeks and just have a lot going on associated with that. I have been trying to spend B’s nap time packing and cleaning, but I still take my blog reading/tweeting breaks.
A few weeks ago I saw this tweet.
Before I followed them, I checked out their site. The basis behind four burgers is that there are FOUR burgers you can choose from, I will get to those, but first, the BEEF.
The burgers are all natural, local north east family farms grass fed beef raised without hormones, antibiotics or steroids. I can’t get behind this enough. Nick and I are all about eating local and knowing all about where our food comes from so this was right up our alley.
You don’t need me to tell you that supporting the smaller local farm, is better for the land, the environment and of course the community.
I decided to follow the company on twitter and low and behold:
I got in touch with the man behind the twitter and he was going to set up a burger extravaganza for Nick and I. We decided to cash that in this Saturday, we had a babysitter and needed a break from the packing and moving stress. We were told we could go to the Cambridge location, which was closer to us, instead of Boston. Unfortunately when we got there the employees didn’t know we were coming, but they were awesome, I just showed them the email and tweet saying I had won, and then gave Nick and I a free burger, side and drink.
So what can you get?
- Natural, Grass Fed, Locally Sources Beef Burger
- Organic-Vegan Black Bean Burger – with mango bbq sauce, lettuce and tomato OR salsa, guacamole and lettuce
- All Natural Turkey Burger – with cranberry chutney
- Salmon Burger – with sesame slaw and soy mayo
- #5 The Special Burger – Yankee Farms Bison, North Star Lamb, Durham Ranch Wild Boar, or Ostrich. Not always available.
Now lets build our burger
- CHEESE - Vermont Cheddar, Pepperjack, Blue, Swiss, Sharp Provolone, American, Herb Havarti, Smoked Gouda
- EXTRAS - NH Smoked Bacon, Sautéed Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Sautéed Onions, Sautéed Peppers, Fried Egg, House Cured Jalapeño Peppers, Carrots, Guacamole, Salsa, Chipotle Mayo, Dijon Mustard, House Sauce
For sides you can get a salad, hand cut french fries, sweet potato fries or half & half fries. They also have a plethora of desserts, as well as beer, wine and soft drinks.
They take your order at the counter
Give you a number
And they bring you your food. It couldn’t have taken more than 15 or 20 minutes.
So what’d we get?
Nick’s – Beef burger with lettuce, tomato, cheddar, Jalapeño peppers and house sauce. Side house cut french fries.
Mine – Beef burger with lettuce, tomato, cheddar, onions and house sauce. Side of half and half fries.
sorry for the blurry photo
Clearly, we hated our meals.
The burger was one of the best burgers I have had in a long time. You can really tell the difference between crappy slime beef, and good, hormone free beef. The burgers were juicy and cooked perfectly, Nick and I prefer our meat at different temperatures and you could tell the difference (medium vs medium well). The cheese was nice and melted and the house sauce was the perfect amount, at least on mine, there was a bit more on Nick’s and it got all over his hands, the buns were also toasted, a huge bonus.
The french fries were perfect, I sorta hate soggy and crispy fries, and very few restaurants get them right in the middle. These were in that sweet spot, my only issue being that it was mostly regular cut with a dozen or so sweet potato thrown in.
I actually really struggled deciding which burger to get because all four sounded delicious, and we eat salmon, turkey and black bean burgers at home.
The service was excellent, more than one employee came to our table to ask us how we liked our food, and no they didn’t know I was a blogger, they asked other tables as well. The place was constantly busy the entire time we were there (7 pm on a Saturday night) but the wait was never very long. If you are in the Cambridge or Boston area I HIGHLY suggest you check out Four Burgers.
Nick and I are going back this weekend, and you better believe that I will be trying something different.
If you went to Four Burgers which burger would you get?
