Thursday Night Special: Tower Burger Co.

 

Who loves family-owned  restaurants?! I do! A few friends sent me invites to like this Facebook page, Tower Burger Co. and the next day, we got hungry! lol We love burgers and since our local burger place is only open for lunch, we loved that this place is open until 11pm, great for late night snacking.

 
Can we just skip the review and just make a lunch date! Seriously, the meat is seasoned, which is one of my pet peeves, under-seasoned food, period!

So, it was Sunday afternoon and we had already woken up late. I gave the girls a bowl of cereal and we started getting ready for church. I had some laundry to get done and then we left and were still running late, so we decided to travel to the next town over to go for Sunday service at 3pm. We had a few hours to spare, so I mentioned lunch. We were driving down Bus 83 and remember that Tower Burgers was on Bus 83. I wasn't sure where it was located, but as soon as we hit Tower Rd., hubby was like, duh! lol 

The sun was beating down that afternoon and as soon as we walked into Tower Burgers you can see the awesome sky-light! Isn't that cool. I don't think I've ever seen a eatery with a sky-light.


We walked up to the counter to order and there was a easy-to-read and everything looked so good. We were talking about options with the cashier. He said there is a grain and salmon burger and hopefully a veggie, turkey and black-bean will be available soon. I just love healthy options. We visited with my mom, three girls and my husband and I, it was almost $50! I say that is reasonable for the delicious food, drinks and amazing service, almost too good! On to the food!


 Fries! Perfectly seasoned! I'm not a big fry person, but my husband is.... take his word for it, he loves them! Bacon, Cheese Burger, OMG! Cheese melted, bacon crispy and onions thinly sliced! And the bun, I think I remember reading on their FB page that it's a butter roll or something. So good! And look at presentation, on a mini cookie sheet, how cool is that. And yeah, there is no dressing, you can add your own. My own complaint was that by the time I was finishing my burger the bread gets all gooey, some people like that. I'm not one of those people, so I just take out the meat and leave out the bread :-)

 Kid options! Yvette, my oldest had a burger, she devoured it and Eliada and Annaleah had a grilled cheese, look at that oozing out. They were greatful enough to also provide a side of tomato for the girls too.

Love how the front end is set up, and as you can see, the Sweet Tea is a big hit. I forgot to ask what type of tea, but it is brewed every morning. Hubby said it tastes like black tea. Below is a view of the back of the house and the cute young waiter we had. He worked so hard the whole time we were there. It's funny cus we usually don't leave a tip at a burger joint, but this waiter was very polite and prompt. When we were leaving I was handing him a tip and he said that there is a tip jar up front and they split the tips at the end of the night. That is so honest of him. Check out the pictures below.....





My thoughts about Tower Burger Co? My new fav burger place, for sure! And it's actually not far from where we live, which is a plus. Also love the hours and excited to see if they add the extra healthy options. Price is mid-range for our area. Most of the burgers were about $8. Yeah, it's like more expensive, but it's not McDonalds! Service was phenomenal. Can ya'll see that bag?! Woowhoo for being green! It says "Reusable & Recyclable"

This restaurant actually opened last month, I wish them the best of luck and so happy that the mid-valley is getting more family-owned restaurant that we can support! Visit their Facebook page and Instagram for pics and more info. If you visit, feel free to mention you saw it on The Mami Blog!
