A friend of mine recently told me he thinks of BurgerFi as a “blend between Five Guys and Shake Shack.” I can see where he’s coming from; the sleek modern interior with wood details and even the color scheme remind me of Danny Meyer’s masterpiece Shake Shack (is it a little outlandish to call a burger place a masterpiece? Maybe, but their Stack Shack is pretty nice).

Personally, BurgerFi is a totally different thing. The burgers are delicious, just like those other popular places, but there’s something at BurgerFi that neither of them can compete with – a quinoa burger.

BurgerFi recently opened an outpost on Miracle Mile and it’s only a matter of time before the area’s health conscious and vegetarian find out about this crispy quinoa burger served on a multigrain bun or lettuce wrap. If you’re more the carnivorous kind of eater, naturally you’ll be pleased to find variations on the classic favorite Angus burger. It’s a pretty small and straightforward menu; there are less than a dozen items including burgers, brisket and hot dogs with a variety of toppings to add on. There’s also a pretty nice selection of wine and craft beers.

Pssst – go visit this new burger spot and order something from the “secret menu.” It’s not advertised in the restaurant, but there are a couple of combinations of menu items that the kitchen will hook you up with. Give it a quick Google in advance and ask for something like the “1/2 and ½” – an Angus burger with a quinoa patty on top… the best of both worlds!
