I’m in the club with my homies, tryna get a l’il V-I, keep it down on the low key, ’cause you know how it feels.
I said shorty she was checkin’ up on me, from the game she was spittin’ my ear you’d think that she knew me.
So we decided to chill
Conversation got heavy, she had me feelin’ like she’s ready to blow! She saying come get me, come get me, So I got up and followed her to the floor, she said baby lets go, When I told her I said….
You know, on second thought, I don’t really feel like dancing. V-I, schmee-I. Can we just ditch this place and go get a burger?
So, anyhow, to make a long story short, shorty and I left the club together and went to this new spot called Yeah! Burger that just opened in the White Provision complex. We had a nice time getting to know each other as we waited in line to place our order. This is what we observed:
The line: Moves at Taqueria del Sol speed — you stand for a bit, but once you place your order and find a table, the food doesn’t take long to come.
The design: Kind of similar to Flip Burger Boutique on the outside, with its bold red sign framing the entrance. But the interior is a winning mix of muted, natural building material and colorful graphics that evoke the spirit of the Dancing Hot Dog from drive-in movie theaters. Low key but also really fun.
Yeah! Burger is the upscale hamburger joint du jour — this time from chef Shaun Doty and operating partner Erik Maier.
The menu: A fun list of patties made from various critters and non-critters as well as hot dogs, salads, traditional sides and a full line of shakes, sundaes, floats and concretes (shakes with blended add ins). The menu doesn’t wear its organic-natural mission statement on its sleeve, but it lets you know that it supports local farms and sustainable agriculture. Nice.
Choices, choices: First up, the patty: beef, bison, veggie (made with organic Sea Island red peas) or turkey, with a chicken breast to complicate matters. Next, the bun: White, wheat, gluten free or a lettuce wrap. There are over a dozen toppings and nearly as many sauces to choose from.
We got: Three burgers to sample:
On the side: A big, fresh salad makes for a nice accompaniment. Kudos for serving it in an actual porcelain bowl. The fries? Yeah, I know you want to know about the fries. They were neither terrible nor transcendent, but it takes a new restaurant at least a month to get its fries right, so I’m not going to pass judgment. I will say a shake less salt on both the fries and o rings would make them more to my liking.
If you still have room, the shakes are made with Strauss Family Creamery organic ice cream. Just sayin’, shorty.
