For the last few weeks, our dad has been taking us to dinner at new places. I told him I needed new blog content once and he’s been making sure I get it. LOL Several weeks ago, we decided to try a restaurant that I heard had gluten-free buns. Nikki & I were on the way there when our dad called and was at a different restaurant. He thought he knew where the other one was located and ended up at The Burger Company. Since it wasn’t that busy (which is great at 7:30 on a Friday night), we decided to just meet him there.
The Burger Company has several locations, most under the name American Burger Company. The story on their website doesn’t mention why there’s a difference in names. There are seven locations total, with a majority in the Charlotte area. You can also find a location in Greenville, SC and Smithtown, NY. The location we were at is on the smaller side. It has high ceilings and exposed duct work. According to their website, The Burger Company is a green restaurant with countertops made from recycled paper and flooring made of bamboo. They even recycle their frying oil into biodiesel fuel! They also have cool decor.
They had several options for Nikki to choose from. She chose the grilled chicken sandwich on a gluten-free bun. The highlight for Nikki was the tater tots. They were cooked in vegetable oil which means they were safe for Nikki to consume. I decided to try the Pretzel Bacon Burger (hold the mustard). The bun tastes like a pretzel and was pretty tasty. I also went with the tater tots. Our dad ordered the Rise ‘N Shine Burger which comes with a fried egg on it. Shame that I forgot to take a picture of it.

We enjoyed The Burger Company and would definitely go again.
