Frequent patrons and fans of the Burger Joint food truck known to roam the Midtown streets will undoubtedly be elated to learn that their favorite mobile menu has taken on a full-scale brick-and-mortar location right in the heart of Montrose.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of devouring one of the eatery’s juicy, uniquely and impeccably-dressed 44 Farms-bred hamburgers, my humble suggestion is that you make it your business to do so, as soon as humanly possible.
The masterminds behind other local food trucks like Koagie Hots and The Golden Grill, culinary engineer Matthew Pak and business partner Shawn Bermudez (who’s also behind other Montrose favorites like Royal Oak and Pistolero’s) wanted to bring an air of simplicity back to the concept of the specialty hamburger. The result is offerings like their Kimchi Burger, which manages to fit the complexity of Korean BBQ flavors into a burger that’s deliciously filling without being physically overwhelming.
The Burger Joint’s menu also features hot dogs and salad bowls, an array of exquisite sides---the bacon-parm fries are a must-try-----and a wealthy list of custom dipping sauces to add just the right amount of pizzazz to whatever you order. You can wash down your meal with any of the local craft beers the Joint has on tap or, if you’re dealing with a pestering sweet tooth, you can grab one of their delectable handspun shakes. They even offer a Not Your Father’s Root Beer Float (made with the increasingly-popular root beer ale) so you can theoretically do both.
Best of all, the move into a stand-alone location doesn’t mean the Burger Joint will be giving up its food truck hours; Fridays and Saturdays will see them stay open until 4AM, so whether you’re headed home after a night out on the town, or stricken awake in the middle of the night by hunger pangs, you won’t have to open an app to find out when and where they’re operating that night, and you (presumably) won’t have to stand in line.
