While I enjoy a burger every once in a while, you have probably gathered from my name that it’s not something that I crave often. However, curiosity got the better of me when I noticed a lot of posts for Betty’s Burgers on my Instagram feed. So when my burger craving finally struck, I dragged my willing accomplices to check out this new joint.
I love the very summery and laid-back decor! It’s quite a pleasant change from the typical dark, bar-style burger joints that make it ever so hard to take good photos. Ha! What’s even better is the simple and streamlined menu. As I don’t frequent burger joints, longer menus make it choices so hard!
You can’t really judge a burger joint without trying their classic or original burger. Luckily one of us chose this. This is simplicity at its best – lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese plus their special sauce! I can’t quite put my finger on what the special sauce is, but it’s a winner. This also means I have to come back to, um, conduct research.
This is the classic stack, the classic burger with a patty made from portobello mushroom, gouda and guyere cheese. For the vegans out there, their vegan option is a burger with just the mushroom patty. I knew I wanted a proper meat burger but the vegetarian burger with the mushroom patty was equally tempting. I suppose Betty had this in mind when she wrote her menu because this is pure genius.
Now I’ve tried a few different pork belly burgers on the Coast, but this is the clear standout! The tender, juicy pork belly was perfectly matched with the sriracha sauce, picked radish and carrots.
Nothing too much to say about the onion rings. They were good but I think a bit overpriced. I think you can get more for the same price at other joints.
I’m not a fan of shoestring fries in general. These were good, but I much prefer thick cut fries.
Overall I enjoyed this burgerscapade at Betty’s Burgers & Concrete Co. Obviously you may be wondering what the concrete stands for. I will be back here in the very near future so stay tuned and find out!
