Diners take the reins at The Burger Bistro, which encourages them to customize their own burgers with six different patties and more than 20 different toppings. On traditional beef, organic lamb, or even shrimp patties, visitors cobble together a topping spread that might include pickled jalapeños, horseradish cream sauce, fried mozzarella, or applewood-smoked bacon. Each location also keeps diners on their toes with regular specials, which have included a turducken burger and sliders with waffles for buns. The donut burger—an occasional special that replaces buns with glazed donuts—earned the bistro a mention on CBS. For dessert, the eatery invites you to build an ice cream sandwich with vanilla, red velvet, or mud pie ice cream slipped inside a shortbread, Belgian waffle, or chocolate chip cookie sandwich.
