Kenmore Square has suffered for a while. It was sad, losing such popular local eateries such as Burrito Max and DeliHaus. However, we may be in for a new golden age with places like UBurger leading the charge. UBurger is an incredible burger joint that is out to be quality food done fast, and doing a darn good job of not appearing to be a fast food rip off. With juicy burgers, incredible frappes, and some of the best onion rings this side of the Mississippi, you cannot go wrong at this local hotspot.
Before a game, for lunch, or even just a quick dinner before class at BU, UBurger is here to fight your hunger needs. Sure, it can get pricey when you start upgrading from a soda to the thick, wicked tasty frappes (special right now is Reese’s peanut butter and chocolate), but $8 is enough to get you a burger, soda and fries or onion rings. But why stop there? Why not get an all beef hot dog with the works (mustard, tomato, onions, pickles, banana pepper rings)? And what about a grilled chicken sandwich, or heck even the Spiro Salad (field greens, gorgonzola, walnuts, pears, dried cranberries, balsamic vinaigrette), which is a pretty tasty treat on a summer afternoon.
But really the burger is what keeps people coming back. Every day the 100% sirloin for the patties is ground fresh, which really adds to the flavor. On the Boom Boom burger (chipotle sauce, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, fried jalapenos), every component adds to an overall outstanding burger, and if anything was missing, it would be a loss. So thank you, UBurger, for giving us faith that once again, Kenmore Square will have more to offer us in the way of delicious, locally owned fare.
