Sometimes basic is actually better, like when it comes to the ingredients in your food. Instead of loading up their meals with ingredients you can’t pronounce, Basic Burger keeps it simple. Their chefs use 100% certified Angus beef, cage- and hormone-free chicken, and organic dairy in their burgers, sandwiches, and milkshakes. This return to the basics has earned them legions of fans.
They love that the fast-casual eatery offers everything from a basic hamburger—that is, a third-pound patty loaded with lettuce, tomato, and red onion—to a fully loaded mushroom Swiss burger smothered with A1 aioli. Buttermilk-fried chicken sandwiches, Chicago hot dogs, and even crispy wild-caught cod sandwiches bring some added variety to the menu. Even the health-conscious will find options that suit them thanks to offerings like the kale Caesar salad and thick-cut sweet potato fries in place of the traditional thin-cut French fries. But don’t skimp on dessert! You deserve an organic cookies-and-cream or strawberry shake on a hot summer’s day. If you decide to sit down and enjoy your burger on-site, feel free to grab a can of craft beer or wine.
