The restaurant industry has become oversaturated with burger
places with only a few adding anything close to consistently tasty,
innovative burgers ultimately worth returning for another meal.
Boston Burger Company is one of those select few that rises above
all the trends and attitudes, acting like a bridge between the best of
traditional burger places and modern, 21st century versions. What
impresses me most about the Boston Burger Company is that they don't
try to do too much with its burgers: They cook it right and accordingly
to customer specification and serve it in a big portion. You'd be
surprised how many burger joints and restaurants screw up those
fundamentals. I recently
ordered the Alpine burger with Swiss cheese and mushroom and
immediately fell in love again with the idea of having a nice, juicy
burger for dinner.It has been a while since having a certified
Alpine burger with homemade chips and baked beans from Boston Burger
I also like the idea of the burger served with delicious
homemade potato chips and a choice of cole slaw or baked beans.
Although fries are available and fantastic at the Boston Burger
Company, the chips and cole slaw or
baked beans are, collectively, more healthy (with the slaw and beans
leading the way).
For me, burgers just haven't tasted like burgers the past several times
at other restaurants -- the result, probably, of all those places
trying to outdo each other and forgetting about the customer.
It's the equivalent of a writer writing to impress himself instead of
considering the audience first. The Boston Burger Company seems to
author its burgers and other menu items with a priority on the
customer. They serve a wide
variety of specialty and build-your own burgers with creative touches
(like the "Vermonster" with sautéed apples & red onion, bacon,
maple mayo, sharp cheddar), and also specialize in
amazing, over sized "Freak Frappes," as well as soups, salads,
wings and craft beer.

The excellent overall dining experience extends to all other facets of
the restaurant with a comfortable, cozy dining and bar area, attentive
and friendly service, good value for the money and a crack management
team making sure everything runs smoothly. If one of those elements
doesn't work, it can spoil a meal no matter how good the food. I found
the Boston Burger Company meets all criteria of a good, solid
restaurant, and not just coming across as another one-note burger place
that gets people in and out quickly.
Boston Burger Company is a dining out goldmine for anyone in the
Harvard Square area. Returning and first-time students to Harvard
University should definitely take note of this amazing burger place --
and everyone else, for that matter!
