Yeah! Burger (Atlanta, GA)
1017 N Highland Ave, Atlanta, GA 30306, T: 404-437-7845
Yeah! Burger is one of the many new upscale burger chains that offer high quality burgers at pretty hefty prices. They currently have two locations in Atlanta and I visit the one in trendy Virginia Highlands. Yeah! Burger specializes in choice and quality, notably all locally grown organic ingredients. They have a couple of specialty burgers, but it’s mostly build your own. You have a choice of beef, bison, turkey, veggie and chicken (all organic) – the also had a (seasonal) lamb burger that time. Catering to a demanding clientele, they even have a vegan and gluten-free menu.
I get a Grass-Fed Beef Burger ($7.49) on an artisan-white bun with tomato, sliced onions, fresh jalapenos (+$1), and bacon jam (+$1). The two thin patties were perfectly grilled – medium, as I had ordered – and very tasty, as was the fresh bun. The bacon jam and jalapenos gave the burger a perfect sweet and spicy mix. Excellent! I also had a side order of hand-cut French Fries ($2.99), which were good, but not outstanding.
Yeah! Burger has one of the best burgers I ever ate at a fast food (type) restaurant, but the high quality ingredients (and hipster looks) come at a high price.
