building

Bugerlich is a large modern place that offers mostly hamburgers but also other options like pulled pork, steak, sweets and salads.  They have a full bar.  Their feature is that there is no server but rather the menus are on pop up screens that rise out of your table.  On that screen you select your choices as well as the options for the preparation of your burger, pay and then wait and they deliver the food to your table.  Some of tables are high tops but there are also regular height tables and some outside (where you must get a printed menu or order at the counter).   The logo is a heart in a circle and they are on the exterior of the building, the business cards and on the rough wood ceiling.  The walls are tile and there are windows to the street on a couple sides which allow the room to get very bright.  Flatware, napkins and condiments are on each table and music is in the background.   Otherwise the walls are decorated with drawings, sayings and liquor bottles.  They also have lots of draft beers.

We tried a couple of their burgers and some sides.  The Cheese Burger was on a brioche bun with two grilled beef patties, Lollo Bionda lettuce, sun-riped tomatoes, onions, cheddar cheese, homemade ketchup and mayonnaise.  In your choices you select your bun, how you want it cooked, single or double patty and other add ons.  The meat was pink but not particularly beefy tasting.  There was too much lettuce and other salad parts for me.  The bun was nicely fresh and the meat still juicy but it wasn’t a flavor explosion.

Frankie enjoyed a beer

 

The Crout Burger was on a brioche bun with a choice of one patty or two, Lollo Bionda lettuce, cooked sauerkraut, homemade ketchup and mayonnaise.  The sauerkraut was too tart for me and again the balance of ingredients was off.   It was just okay.

For sides the Burgerlich Pommes were not a super crisp version of a French fry but the taste was good.

The onion rings were covered with lots of really crisp coating but not enough onion to balance.  They were still very edible though.  This seemed like a place for a good quick snack from quality ingredients and it filled that bill.

On the way out they offered boxes of apples for you to have one.  I didn’t but it was a nice thought.
