On one of my jaunts with my son, he suggested we try the BurgerFi® restaurant on Park Avenue. I didn’t protest. I’ve driven by the place many times and wondered if it was a typical hamburger joint. There are plenty of those around Orlando. Restaurants on Park Ave are a bit unique, so I figured BurgerFi® would also be out of the ordinary. It’s an awesome restaurant. BurgerFi® and the Burgerfication of the Nation® is quickly spreading (read more about burgerfication on the BurgferFi® website). And that’s a good thing. There’s nothing like a good burger, fries, and a shake.
BurgerFi® Restaurant Review
BurgerFi® occupies the corner of Park and Aloma Avenues in Winter Park. The restaurant offers both inside and outside patio dining. The decor and ambiance are urban, and the color scheme represents the sustainable farm-to-table movement. It’s fast and casual, too. We ordered inside at the counter. The staff was more than friendly and helpful. The manager explained to us how the menu system worked and then he talked about all of the sides and optional toppings. Once we ordered (it was so hard to decide what to eat), we found a seat on the patio (I love to people watch). The food is freshly cooked and served fairly quick.
BurgerFi® is not a typical burger restaurant. BurgerFi® focuses on all natural, free-range beef. No hormones, steroids, or antibiotics ever! We both drooled all over ourselves as the manager talked about the menu and the optional toppings. We both changed our minds several times before we finally ordered.
James ordered the Build Your Best Burger—a double natural Angus beef burger covered in Swiss cheese. The bun is branded with the BurgerFi® logo and name. It was so juicy and delicious he wished he had ordered the triple patty. BurgerFi® also offers a Veggie Burger—crisp quinoa burger, white cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and BurgerFi® sauce served on multigrain bun, and the All Day Breakfast Burger—natural Angus burger, American cheese, hickory bacon drizzled with maple syrup, fried egg, hash browns, grilled diced onions, and ketchup. The Build Your Best Burger option includes a variety of cheeses, bacon, fried egg, and other tempting toppings.
I ordered the 100% Wagyu Kobe Beef Dog with neon relish (weird, right?) and onion. It was juicy, not greasy, and flavorful. I thought seriously about the Chicago Style Dog—an all-natural dog topped with mustard, neon relish, diced onion, tomato slices, sport peppers, celery salt, and a pickle spear served on a poppy seed bun, and the New York Style Dog—an all natural dog topped with mustard and kraut. I absolutely could not leave without indulging. I’m a peanut butter freak, and I nearly passed out when I saw the peanut butter shake on the menu. It’s my new favorite thing. I loved the dog and fries, but the shake was out of this world. It was thick, creamy, and filled with real peanut butter. I’m so addicted.
We shared an order of the Urban Fries—Parmesan and herb fries topped with garlic aioli—I could eat these as a meal. The salt and vinegar fries were tempting, too. I also learned that fries can be ordered limp or extra crispy. It was a bit early, so we passed on the hand-craft beer and wine, but we’ll try it on our next visit. Preview the BurgerFi® menu online for a glimpse of what’s missing in your life.
Prices at BurgerFi® are comparable to other burger restaurants. The size of the portions and the quality of the food is outstanding, especially considering the reasonable menu prices.
