BurgerFi Excellence: True Bombdigity Delicious Burgers!

Good Day Foodie’s,
Trey’s Chow Down made a trip to Sarasota, Florida. We were out to investigate and review the amazing BurgerFi. My fellow foodies, trust me this was a fantastic place.
The delicious “CEO” burger, Moo!

BurgerFi states: “We really get cooking with our 100% natural ANGUS and WAYGU beef, free of hormones and antibiotics and chef-driven menu items, like our famous crispy fries and double-battered onion rings — served hot and crunchy with our chef-created sauces. Other favorites include our VegeFi (our own gourmet spin on a veggie burger), Vienna hot dogs with all the fixings, frozen custard, natural sugar cane sodas, and local craft beer and wine. You’ll find the highest level of pride and attention in everything we do.”

I chose to visit the Sarasota location because it was located in a new development area, and is also a new unit for BurgerFi. 
came on the scene just a few years ago back in 2011. They’ve already been named in “Top 50 Movers and Shakers” by Fast Casual Magazine. BurgerFi has a BIG list of other awards already in the bag too. Their locations are colorful, clean, open and fresh with beautiful patios.

All-American Awesomeness at Liberty Burger

Good day burger buddies,

I received an email from a burger lover who requested I check out Liberty Burger. He thought I would enjoy it, I figured “Why not”?

There are plenty of new burger joints to visit, but it is nearly impossible to visit them all. After I did my due diligence, I thought it necessary to take a ride over to chow down at the DFW Liberty Burger.

Liberty Burger philosophy is, “We are family-owned and Texas-grown, and that’s how we operate. We not only strive to reinvent the all-American concept of the hamburger, but we pledge to be a restaurant with high-quality food, social contribution, and environmental responsibility. We believe in doing things right: sourcing the freshest and highest quality product, finding local bakeries that use only American-grown ingredients, and ensuring that our meats come from responsible sources.

No, it’s not the easiest way to run a restaurant, but it is the right way – and that’s what we are committed to doing. Call us crazy, but Liberty Burger has goals far above the “bottom line.” We hold our values close to our heart and pride ourselves on quality, community, and service. From the beef to the beer to the beverages, Liberty Burger strives to use only family-owned and Texas-grown products and services.

We believe in supporting the communities that support us, and we are thankful for all of your support.”

Trey’s Best Hamburgers 2017

Fred’s Diablo Burger

I just love hamburgers. My family has been involved with burgers ever since I can remember. We’ve sold them in basically every restaurant concept we’ve owned and operated for the past 100 years. We’ve created new burger profiles for our restaurant concepts, and helped with the creation and implementation for others too. My granddad started “Quality Meat and Provision Company” in 1930 in which we produced, boxed, sold and delivered our family hamburger patties to restaurants all over Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.

As a boy, I not only worked in our restaurants, but I also worked at our meat company helping make and box hamburgers too. I’ve had so much experience with hamburgers that if there were Masters Degrees for hamburger knowledge, I would have to have had three of them by now at the very least.

Having so much history with hamburgers, I’ve always wondered when and where the hamburger was created. According to Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro, the hamburger- a ground meat patty between two slices of bread, was first created in America in the 1900’s by Louis Lassen, a Danish immigrant and owner of Louis’ Lunch in New Haven, Connecticut. Louis Lunch is still in operation today and is a wonderful place with a cozy-looking atmosphere.
There are several different versions of stories of when the hamburger was invented- one version is that of German cook, Otto Kuasw- who created a very popular “sailors’ sandwich” made of a fillet of beef fried in butter, served with a fried egg, between two toasted buns in 1891, Hamburg, Germany!
