Beech St. Burger - Juicy!
Beech St. Burger is a small eatery in Little Italy next door to Greco Lean and Fit Beech St. location. Might you feel a little guilty chowing down on a juicy burger, knowing you could be better off next door? You might.
The Beech St. Burger location replaces the short lived Danni Panini which before that was the Nicholas Coffee Shop. Can they make a go of it? Their timing is right. If you're going to open a burger shop, do it when the smell of BBQ's permeate us as the warmer days of summer move in.
Under Greco's shadow, I was frugal in my choice. I picked the smaller, single patty Baby Burger. No cheese. No bacon. Of course, I loaded up on the salad toppings - lettuce, tomato, onion, hot peppers, pickles, plus small dabs of ketchup, mustard, relish and mayo. All for $6. I also, restrained with a more than ample small fry for $2.50. No fizzy drink.
The burger was juicy and flavourful - advertised as "Fresh Local Beef Handmade Patties". Although my bun looked a bit beat up, it was plenty fresh. Just a victim of a tight wrap. A small detail but I favour the sesame bun. I loved the "Fresh Cut Fries" as well. Next time I would happily share the spilling box with a friend.
Seating is probably a very tight twenty. And the open grilling and frying area is part of that ambiance.
The experience reminded me of visits to the nearby Hintonburger on Wellington Street. Making me wonder if their overflow of burger popularity might have fans venturing the 2 kms/4 minute drive to Beech St.
Burger season is here and so is Beech St. Burger.
