Greensboro Hamburger Options Get Serious.
Finally Greensboro has seen the opening of Burger Warfare. This has been the longest act of public foreplay in local restaurant history.
It all began for most of us, with the 5,000 pound armed robot just off Battleground Ave. When I first caught the giant beast out of the corner of my eye I had to stop the car and turn around to check it out. This was Jan. 2014. Having started my 52 burger project, I was excited and planned to include this place in the mix. Well, 56 burgers later, on February 9, 2015, the doors finally open.
There’s not much I can tell you here that won’t be obvious on your first visit. The place is military themed out the ying-yang. It’s over-done in an extremely passionate and expense-be-damned way. God bless’em.
The real point of the story, from my standpoint, is the hamburgers. I had high expectations for the food itself. I also knew that the first week of opening would be a little cra-cra. Damn the torpedoes. This is irresistible. I mustered to the bar and order’d up. They did not disappoint.
The menu has several military-inspired and unique burger plates, and of course they’ll build yours any way you like. The ingredients are quality and the execution certainly passed inspection. The fries are fresh and tasty but I had been leaning to tots, which I’ll try next time. The Warfare sauce was excellent for dipping.
For the adults, beer from the company store, Pig Pounder Brewery, will satisfy. The Coke products seem ordinary. For us kids at heart I’d like to suggest they add bottled Cheerwine, and Sun Drop. Another good idea, and one I didn’t catch on the menu, is the bottled wine “Cheeseburger Red“. It seems to be served by the glass but that’s for next time too.
The bottom line is that you need to try this place for yourself. The hamburgers are among the best in town, and the environment is too fantastic to miss.
