Burger Lovers Rejoice! – So when most people think of a juicy burger, Five Guys comes to mind. My friend was curious to see if BGR: The Burger Joint was comparable if not better so I offered to try it out for lunch. Having been on tv with Throwdown with Bobbly Flay and also Man vs Food, I had high expectations. They definitely lived up to the hype.
It's a small burger joint in downtown Bethesda and a great lunch option for the many business people diving into their juicy burgers. The menu is much more diverse than Five Guys. You have the options of regular burgers, lamb burgers, veggie burgers, sliders, etc. They also offer regular fries, sweet potato fries, asparagus fries, and gigantic onion rings. Literally, this onion rings are over 2 inches thick, each! The best deal is the box set for $8.99 which is what I got. It comes with the option of a regular burger, veggie burger or sliders, fries and a drink. I chose the regular burger with the works meaning lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and they're special mojo sauce. I came to the conclusion that the mojo sauce is mayo with a bit of spice, maybe hot sauce?! The only downfall was the bun was not sturdy enough to support the burger and all the toppings. It was a bit of a mess but so worth it.
With this chain taking off and opening new stores in NoVa, it's definitely worth a quick trip to try it out. Prices, value and the amount of food is comparable to Five Guys but BGR takes the cake! More options and better tasting burger, how could it not be the best!
