May 14, 2016

To get my appetite going, I stopped by Shula Burger which is practically in Lakeland. So here is a quick recap of my visit.

Entering this location reminded me of Smashburger. The menu featured standard choices including a build your own. They sold beer and wine and had a couple of TVs as well as outdoor seating. The good thing is that they were using an actual grill to cook the meat, and you can watch it all through a long horizontal opening in the wall.

I got the Shula Burger with cheddar and sides of spicy brown mustard and herb garlic mayo. It came out with Shula embedded in the bun just like BurgerFi. They cook it up at a medium temperature but I should have asked for medium-rare. The first couple of bites I got that slight char on the outside and it was slightly juicy. The herb and garlic sauce was like Big Boy sauce but better.

In all, it was good and I would stop again but it didn’t stand out compared to its competitors like BurgerFi and Burger 21.
