By now you may have heard all about how this burger joint sports Slow Food principles (beef and chicken are all natural, hand-cut fries are cooked in trans-fat-free vegetable oil). But how's it all taste? Pretty good. Burgers are hand-formed and cooked to a nice pinky medium. Opt for aged cheddar, bacon and egg toppings, and be sure to add the rustic, skin-on fries. Shakes are decent, but our favorite sipper is the Lemon Squeeze, a blend of fro-yo, strawberries and lemonade.
