Couple of weeks ago, Tina and I were in Greenville, SC and before we headed to a movie, we wanted to find a bite to eat. We had resigned to the fact we would be eating typical chain, fast-food, but thankfully we stumbled upon a local place that sounded interesting instead.
Metro Burger is a locally owned gourmet burger shop at 1102 Woodruff Rd, in the old Jack In The Box location, right across from the movie theater. On the Metro Burger website, they list it as a chain (and have info about franchise options) but this is currently the only location. I would LOVE to get one of these in Columbia! It is so much better than a Five Guys or any other burger joint I have been into a while.
They have lots of great signature burgers on the menu, but also have a build-it-yourself option too, so you can create almost any possible combination. Tina built a wonderful turkey burger with lots of great toppings (regretfully I did not get a picture of it…). I had one of their signature items called a Carolina Slawster Burger! Angus beef burger, blue cheese slaw, tomato and one onion ring! It was delicious! And I was pleasantly surprised to see they serve Duke’s mayo with it! (my favorite!)
If you are looking to save money, and get a cheap, super-quick burger that is ready the moment you order it, head to MickeyD’s or something… but if you have a few minutes to wait, and can spend a little more, this is the place to get a burger in Greenville.
***(And I will promise to frequent the location if someone in Columbia wants to open one up! Just let me know! 🙂
