Review: Burger Parlor

Located within a mile of Fullerton College, Burger Parlor offers great burgers and non beef patties.

Located in Downtown Fullerton off of Harbor Boulevard, Burger Parlor is a quick drive or even walk from Fullerton College. Contrary to a typical burger joint, Burger Parlor offers burgers in a wide variety of styles. You can substitute your beef patty for a turkey patty, grilled chicken patty, crispy chicken patty, or even a portobello mushroom patty.

Beyond the various choices of patties, Burger Parlor also allows customers to alter their burger to become something other than just a traditional burger on a bun.

They offer a “protein style” similar to In-n-Out’s with the “Lettuce Wrap it” option, the “Burger Bowl it” option that turns your favorite burger into a salad and lastly the “Poutine it” option which puts your favorite burger on a bed of chili fries.

Besides the delicious wide variety of burgers, they offer a few sandwiches, salads and sides galore.

Their fries are amazing and come in a myriad of variations as each and every one has the perfect crisp outside without being burnt. The onion rings are also some of the best and they do the impossible; the onion does not slide out of the breading on the first bite.

Burger Parlor also offers an assortment of shakes including the classic flavors Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry. In addition they offer some more fun choices including Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Cap n’ Crunch, Nutella Banana and Cookies & Cream.

Grilled Cheese, Chicken Tenders and smaller sized burgers are offered on their kids menu.

In terms of sauces, there are different ones that come on different burgers and fries are served with ranch. At the condiment bar there is not only Heinz Ketchup and Barbecue Sauce, but the restaurant makes their own Ketchup as well.

The Burger Parlor has something for everyone of all ages and all on dietary restrictions. It has a great atmosphere and food that will make you want to come back for more.
