At this counter service burgery, you can go simple with the "Classic" topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato and ketchup. Or you can go wild, with a Big Mash Bite, topped with -- yikes -- mashed potatoes. You'll also find a juicy turkey burger.
For those who like it simple, there's the Classic, topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato and ketchup. I was able to get it medium-rare and thought it good and juicy, although surpassed by the turkey burger, which was done B.C.L.T. Bite style - with bacon, Cheddar, lettuce and tomato. This is the home of the Big Mash Bite, topped with - yikes - house-made mashed potatoes. Any burger may be customized with free toppings (lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, jalapeños and onions); cheese costs extra, as do "premium" items such as caramelized onions, bacon and houseroasted peppers.
Burger bill $4.59 (basic burger) to $7.99 (double burger); 50 cents additional for each "premium" topping.
