Whenever a place is named Burger Bar you assume greatness. Â That’s what Guy Fieri fromÂ Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives visited the Burger Bar in Roy, Utah a few years ago. Â With a visit from Food Network and a name like Burger Bar it’s about time for BurgerVoice to head on over and see what all the fuss is about. Â Known for the Big Ben burger (and ice cream), the Burger Bar in Roy is a classic drive-in with plenty of outdoor benches to sit and wait on while your order is being made behind the giant ordering windows. Â Constant flows of people are well managed by the diner style employees with the diner hats and everything. Â Everything you need to know is in big writing above the ordering windows and the prices are surprisingly reasonable, even after Food Network popularity. Â Now for the burger review.
The Big Ben is loaded with potential because you immediately think something special is going to be handed to you in the form of a giant burger, at least that’s what I thought. Â The Big Ben can be ordered with as many beef patties as you’d like but the original is simply the Big Ben. Â As for the substance that is Big Ben I’d say it’s a little underwhelming as a single patty so please, please go for at least a double if you’re there so the meat will match the bun and you’ll have a much better experience. Â Everything is covered in a delicious fry sauce so be warned that if you aren’t in love with fry sauce your Big Ben experience may be tainted. Â If you like dough, as in bread, then Burger Bar is the place for you. Â The bun is delicious and at various times in my meal I wanted to rip off the bun and get some strawberry jam because it was that good. Â As far as the overall burger goes, it’s a cool place to go because of the popularity but there are a lot of way better burgers in Utah. Â It’s a good burger but not a great burger.
Now for the fries, fried mushrooms, onion rings and ice cream shakes which I normally don’t mention on this blog. Â First the fries, they are pretty darn good and can be ordered old school for some extra “original skin” goodness. Â The fried mushrooms are DELICIOUS! Â The ice cream and flavor options are PHENOMENAL. Â So why is Burger Bar so famous? Â I’m pretty sure it’s not the burgers but after tasting some of the other offerings, go for the mushrooms and a shake and you’ll be glad you visited.
