The classic burgers here are made from lean, all-natural, 100% certified organic Pat LaFreida beef served on a brioche bun, so don’t expect the same grease-dripping savoriness of a ballpark burger. Burger Guru’s main appeal is an exotic, all-natural meat selection intended to satiate the ‘Burg’s more adventurous palates: for a few extra bucks, ostrich, elk, kobe beef, and lamb can be substituted for regular beef . Topping combinations include everything from fried eggs to a spicy Greek cheese spread, but a safe bet is always the classic bacon cheese burger, oozing in cheddar cheese and topped with Applewood smoked bacon. Herbivores, be warned: the meatless burger options are definitely not the restaurant’s specialty. With most burgers at around $12 in price, money-tight customers grumble at having to pay extra for fries that can vary from soggy to overly crispy. Save room for a milkshake instead, and enjoy the spacious back patio filled with large wooden tables, plants, and shady umbrellas, perfect for warm-weather lounging.
