 BurgerFi?

BurgerFi? Wed, 08/7/13 3:33 PM (permalink)
A Florida-based burger chain called BurgerFi is opening an outlet a few blocks from my office (and across the street from the Reading Terminal). They have the thin patties that I like and also serve frozen custard, which I love when it's made well.
 
Does anyone have any experience with BurgerFi? Is this a place I should be excited about?
 
A Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers opened in the Philly burbs in the past year and I love their burgers and custard. I'm also a shake shack fan. So if BurgerFi is even close to being as good as those places, I'd be very happy to have it as a lunch option during the week.

    Kinda reminds me of Culver's.
     
    Their fries look great on their website.

      The Smashburger pix look good, too, but, as lleechef noted when we went, "It's a small step up from McDonald's."

        I think we're also getting a Smashburger somewhere in or near Philly. I'm glad to have some of these chains move into the region, given the fairly slim pickings for fast-food style burgers we had until relatively recently. As I mentioned above, I've become a pretty big fan of Freddy's Frozen Custard's double cheeseburger.
         
        Now if we could just get Culver's and Steak 'n Shake. The fries at Freddy's remind me a lot of the fries at Steak 'n Shake.
         
        I've moved to within a 10-minute drive of Charlie's Hamburgers, which is the only burger place in this region and one of only two in Pennsylvania to make the Hamburger America book. And I love their burgers; but they're SO greasy - maybe the greasiest burgers I've ever had - that I only get them occasionally. Some of these smaller chains are the next best option, as most of the highly regarded burgers in Philly are the large pub-style ones. I prefer a couple thin patties piled on top of each other.
