Burgerteca [Eat]

A few weeks ago my coworkers and I decided to try out Burgerteca. One of them read a bad review from the SA Express-News, so instead of not going, we decided to judge it by ourselves. Hey, there is no bad publicity.

We got there and the place was super colorful and pretty, like all of Johnny Hernandez restaurants. The ambiance was nice and our server was very friendly and took our orders pretty fast. I was going to share a burger with my friend so I let her choose the burger since I am not a picky eater.

She ordered the Al Pastor Burger- Beef patty with Al Pastor seasoning, grilled pineapple, tomatillo ketchup, manchego cheese, onion, cabbage, and cilantro. and the Queso Fundido Fries - french fries, poblano peppers, manchego cheese, and chorizo. The hamburger was really good, the bread tasted like it was homemade and it was super soft and tasty. After a couple bites, I tasted the spiciness along with the sweet taste of the pineapple. I love tacos al pastor, so anything al pastor is good with me. The fries were good, but a little cold. I think they added all the ingredients to the "casuela" and heat it in the oven. A friendly advise will be to add the "queso fundido" (melted cheese) on top of everything. They were good and I ate them anyway.

My coworkers order the Oaxaca Burger, The Chilaquiles Burger, and the Vegetarian, along with Mole Fries. I particularly love mole so Mole fries were my favorite.

Overall everyone was happy with their food. We discussed that if you are a picky eater and somehow close-minded you should stick to Whataburger or other places where they have basic burgers.

Burgerteca offers an experience, a lot of Mexican based flavors and not a conventional burger.  If you are looking for a different experience you should totally check this place out. I want to go back and try the Oaxaca burger, just because I love mole. They also have a very nice patio, that looks perfect for drinks after work, or even after a workout since it's located on the Mission Reach.

I will give Burgerteca 3 stars! I know my stars don't count but it's better than no stars. ✩✩✩
