Yeah! Burger – Atlanta, GA

Looking back, I can’t believe that I haven’t said anything about Yeah! Burger.  We eat there about once every three weeks.  It’s really quote simple: I ask Jo where she wants to eat, and, regardless of where we are or when it is, she says, “Yeah! Burger”.  The concept is near perfect: they use natural and organic ingredients and allow you to build-your-own burger.  You start with the patty – beef, bison, turkey, veggie or chicken breast – and place it on a bun – southern white, whole wheat or gluten-free – and add your ingredients.

With two locations in Atlanta (Howell Mill and Virginia-Highlands) it’s not “fast-food” but it is great food done relatively quickly.  The reason we go back is for the turkey burger.  I’m a beef guy (although the bison there is a less-fat alternative) but I’ll have to admit that Yeah! Burger has the best turkey burger I’ve ever had.

This one is on whole wheat with tomato and turkey bacon.  Usually, I add pimiento cheese but I didn’t the day that I took this photo.

I’ve also tried the chili and cheese (pimiento) dog:

It was okay, but I’ll stick with the burger in the future.  Consistently, the food is tasty and they feature monthly burger specials (crab, the lamb) along with monthly side specials (caprese in a cup, a beet salad).  One of the other “nifty” menu options is that you can order Fifty-Fifty as a side (half french fries / half onion rings).  And they have a secret menu.  Here’s a Dirty South Bison Burger from a recent visit. Definitely a winner in my book.
