I ventured down West Market St. eager to try the new restaurant in Highland Square. My friends had been raving about metroBURGER and I was eager to try one of their signature design your own burgers.

MetroBURGER is locally owned and operated and offers the longest list of burger toppings that I had ever seen. Along with their unique burgers they also use completely biodegradable paper and plastic products, sure to appeal to the environmentally conscious crowd of Highland Square.

The décor is simple but bright and creates a chic city environment. There is ample seating both indoors and a few tables outside.

When you enter the restaurant there are clipboards to your right with menus attached. The ordering process is simple and interactive. You can either choose to order one of the signature burgers or create your own.

The burgers come in various sizes and are available in beef, chicken, turkey and veggie varieties.The toppings and sauces are really where metroBURGER enters the realm of the gourmet.

There are over six choices of cheese, 19 fresh toppings, and 14 delicious sauces. All of the choices can seem overwhelming but they allow a customer to choose the exact type of burger they want. The complete menu is available at www.metroburger.com and all items are available for carryout.

I chose to create my own burger and ordered a veggie burger on a honey wheat bun with onion, mushrooms, corn and bean salsa, mixed greens and brie cheese.

I ordered the intriguing Basil Pesto Mayo sauce and their fresh sweet potato fries on the side. While it took a little longer than I expected for my meal to be ready, it was made to perfection. My burger arrived warm, the bun was toasted and everything was delicious. The sweet potato fries were crisp and flavorful, and I loved all of the toppings on my veggie burger.

Because the burgers are made to order, don’t expect your food to be ready as quickly as a McDonald’s drive through, but from my experience the food and selection are well worth the wait.

I have heard several meat connoisseurs comment that the meat could use some seasoning and complain that the burgers can only be cooked medium well.

But with their hip décor, wide range of toppings, vegetarian options and delicious burgers I think metroBURGER is in the Square to stay.
