In Good Company at The Company Burger

I have never been left so speechless after taking a bite of a burger. I’ve written many articles on specialty burgers, fast food burgers, diner burgers, but nothing compares to The Company Burger.

When you think of an average burger the word crunch rarely comes to mind, unless of course you are referring to the lettuce or bacon, but this is no average burger. As you take your first bite of this godly creation you’ll notice that there is a distinct crunch, no it’s not a potato chip or The Company Burger’s mind-blowing onion rings, it’s the actual patty. Between the perfectly-toasted golden bun and the crispy outer layer of the juicy, flavorful beef you get a bite that will take your breath away.

Their delicious antibiotic/hormone-free patties are accompanied by house-made bread & butter pickles, local onions, and of course gooey, melted American cheese. Their burgers are phenomenal served as is (undressed), but I highly recommend dressing them with their large array of homemade mayonnaises. Basil, Chipotle, Garlic, and even Bacon-aise are just a few of their complimentary decadent creations.

If you’re a purist and can’t bring yourself to harm the perfect burger with condiments they have a ton of sides worth checking out, including tater tots. For just $2 you can get French fries or the best darn onion rings I’ve ever had and dip them in these heart-attack and smile-inducing sauces. Definitely get the onion rings. You can never go wrong with super battered sweet red onions, especially when you dip them in garlic mayo.

I promise you won’t be disappointed by these burgers, they are completely worth the $6-$12. And if you are in the mood to give your taste buds a thrill you must try the pork belly corndog—that’s right, pork belly. Enough said. There’s a reason why there’s already a line down the street from The Company Burger (and a gym next door).

  • I consider myself a Burger elitist.  I seek out the best burgers in the metro area, and I disagree with this article.  I ordered the standard Company Burger.  The burgers are over priced, and it is impossible to get them dressed in anything other than their flavored mayonnaises.  The bread they are on is fantastic, but overpowers the experience of the Burger.  And the meal you get is small for the price you pay.  My buddy and I went in, spend about $20 each, were completely unsatisfied.  We took a walk across the road to Dat Dog to get our fill, which never lets us down.

    They are trying to do too much with their burger, and charging a premium to do it.  Want a great “small” burger try Camelia’s Grill.  My favorite full sized burger:  Nothing yet beats the Peanut Butter Burger at Yo Mamma’s in the Quarter.
