Our Very Best Veggie Burger

We have exciting news for burger lovers. Meat lovers, veggie lovers, and yes, even veggie  burger skeptics. We have a new plant-based burger in all our restaurants, and what we believe is Our Very Best Veggie Burger ever.

Our new (and super-secret) recipe is made from whole grains, whole foods, and the perfect combination of veggies from farmers we know and trust. Our Very Best Veggie Burger is topped with chopped cabbage and lettuce, our Bread & Butter pickles, tomatoes, chopped onions, muenster cheese, special house sauce, and served on our freshly baked brioche bun with french fries. We love our recipe so much, we have also created a Veggie Loaf platter too, which is served with mashed potatoes, roasted cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, and topped with mushroom gravy. Our Veggie Patty is also available as a side on our breakfast menu.

We are super excited about these new vegetarian offerings, now available across all our seven restaurants. Over the years, we have offered our guests a few different plant-based burgers. For the past several years, we have been serving the IMPOSSIBLE™ Burger. In fact, we were the first restaurant in the DC and King of Prussia areas to serve the IMPOSSIBLE™ Burger. In this time, we’ve studied what guests have enjoyed about IMPOSSIBLE, and reflected on the positives and negatives of the product. We have decided to drop this one exception to our “we make it ourselves from scratch” ethos.

“The Impossible Burger was an unusual offering for us, since it is not scratch-made in our restaurants, and it comes from a lab rather than a farm or ranch,” says Co-Owner, Dan Simons. “We were intrigued by the potential of Impossible Burger, and their stated motivations about health and environment. In our company, we are always weighing how our choices impact the environment, as well as our farmer-owners and our guests. Bottom line? Factory food is factory food, no matter how you dress it up. We feel that our farmers are great stewards of the land for the long haul. Our chefs were excited to create a new plant-based offering for our vegetarian guests ­and for meat-eaters who love a great veggie burger. The fact is, this challenge is Not-Impossible, and I think when you taste our plant-based burger, you’ll agree.”

We hope burger lovers of all stripes will join us soon. We think you will agree that we have created Our Very Best Veggie Burger.
