After starting this blog, my good friend Mischa was going on about Roam Artisan Burgers. Last night, he treated me to dinner there. Business was booming, and the line was out the front door, but it didn’t take long for it to move along.
Roam’s menu consists of many different kinds of burgers. The first thing you need to decide is whether you want beef, turkey, bison, veggie, or their special (last night it was elk). Then, you choose from one of eight styles. Classic, French and Fries, Tejano, Sunny Side, Heritage, Chalet, Pacific Blue, and BBQ. Classic costs $6, but $7 with cheese. The others are $8. They also have a variety of fries including Russet, Sweet Potato, and Zucchini Onion.
A meal with a Classic-style burger, fries, and a drink comes to around $13.
Once you order at the counter, you’ll receive a number and they’ll bring it to your table when it’s ready. It was really busy last night, so it took roughly 20 minutes for our food to arrive. Burgers were on plates and fries were in a metal basket.
I took one bite and was in love. Died and went to Burger Heaven. The white corn strips on my burger added a great crunchy texture. The ranch sauce was yummy and the pepper jack with jalepeño relish added a nice kick.
The thing I was most surprised about was that the burger stayed completely intact the whole time. It first seemed a little messy, but it was easy to eat. Mischa’s had fries on the burger. Next time I’m going to have to try that. The fries were super tasty and had just the right consistency. They were perfect. Also: sesame seeds on both buns!
Roam was super awesome, and can’t wait to go here again. Be sure to get yourself a Dagoba Chocolate Shake. It’s great to have while you wait for your food.
