Amazing! That is the first word that comes to my mind when I think about my visit to the Boss Burger Southport location. Last Friday the Hubz and I headed out for a quick dinner with my parents to Burger Boss. Before I go most places I always read the reviews so I can know what to expect. The reviews were impressive. I looked for certain key words and I was glad to see they were all there. As a true beef fan I eat burgers a lot, but I don’t want a plain flimsy burger. I want a burger that’s fresh, packed with bacon, cheese, onions, lettuce and a good sauce and paired with a great order of fries. After visiting Burger Boss I can honestly say I received that and much more.
As you may know my husband is a cook, which means he is extremely picky when it comes to restaurants. Especially when it comes to burgers, he is the kind of guy that wants everything piled up on his bun plus two gourmet beef patties. I knew taking him would be interesting. When we entered the restaurant we were greeted and the cashier walked us through the menu. My dad was busy speaking with the manager Mike about their great location and the whole concept of grass-fed cows. Once we finally got his attention he eagerly ordered.
The menu selection is solid. You can pick a beef burger, turkey burger, veggie patty, Portobello mushroom, or chicken breast. My mom went with the chicken breast and the rest of us did double beef patties (yes I can eat double the meat LOL). My husband and I actually picked the same burger separately ( I knew it was something about him I liked. heehee). We selected The Southport Boss which has Applewood Smoked Bacon, All-Natural Cheddar, Lettuce, Tomato, Boss Sauce, Pickles, Grilled Onions piled high on a Brioche bun. Yep. I ate ALL of mine. So did the hubz.
Like I mentioned before my mother got the Chicken breast instead of a beef patty, but the sandwich is made the same way. Her selection was The Classic Boss that included American Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Pickles, Ketchup, Mustard, Mayonnaise and she had it piled on top of a pretzel bun. My dad loves a good gourmet burger so he picked The Bleu Burger which consisted of Melted Bleu Cheese, Sauteed Mushrooms, Grilled Onions, Lettuce, Mayonnaise, on top of a Whole Wheat bun.
We didn’t do much talking at our tables. We just ate and smiled. The fresh handcut shoestring fries were like no other. They even have delicious sweet potato fries. To seal the deal I ordered a coconut milkshake and my mom jumped on the bandwagon and ordered a strawberry one. So tasty, rich, and smooth. I don’t have one bad thing to say about this place. I like that it’s kid friendly I will bring Dereon with us next visit. The men loved the fact the big screen TVs were playing the basketball game while my mom and I loved the décor and the clean and spacious bathrooms. The staff was extremely helpful and warm. The atmosphere was laid back and welcoming I didn’t feel rush at all. Before we left the head chef sent us out their monthly burger for us to try out and boy, it was amazing. January special is called The Banh Mi Boss and it has different flavors all rolled into one great burger: Angus beef patties with their in-house Pickled Carrots and Radishes, fresh Cucumber slices, Jalapeno Peppers and Cilantro, all tucked in a toasted Brioche bun finished with Sriracha Hoisin Mayo.
Burger Boss is great for a laid back date night, family night, a quick bite for lunch, or you just want a great burger. Stop by The Burger Boss on Southport. Check them out their website and like them on Facebook!
