CG Burgers Restaurant Review
A quick eight-minute drive from the Kendall Campus to The Palms at Town & Country takes us to CG Burgers. Opened in May, CG offers an array of hearty, mouthwatering burgers, fries, wings and more at an affordable price.
The restaurant offers a spacious dining area with a modern-western look that makes for a pretty upscale dining experience at a burger joint.
Carrying the motto of “all-natural, antibiotic-free, humanely raised beef,” I sampled several items from their menu.
The Pub Burger, a single stack hamburger with your choice of mostly free toppings—cheese and bacon are extra—is the basic burger. I got the burger with the works and chipotle sauce along with zucchini fries—the restaurant’s signature fry—and a regular drink for just under $12.
The burger patty was cooked well done and was a bit lackluster, but the tangy chipotle sauce made up for the missing juiciness of the meat.
The zucchini fries were a fantastic surprise, offering a good, crispy bite perfectly complimented by the ranch dressing. I also got to try the home-cut sweet potato fries, which were also exceptional. Of the four sides, I thought they were the best. The regular french fries were disappointing, almost always being too greasy and missing a much-needed bite.
Of the other menu items I tried, the steak sub was delicious but a bit too small for it’s $8 asking price. The other types of burgers I tried included kobe , bison and lamb, and were between $7.95 and $9.50.
Except for the lamb, which was served with their special home made tzatziki sauce: a Greek yogurt-based sauce, the kobe and bison really didn’t warrant the steep price increase over the regular burger.
Overall, I’m a fan of CG burgers. The ability to choose what I want on my burger along with the overall variety of the menu will keep me coming back for more.
