Derek and I were really craving burgers last night so we did a little bit of research online and decided on a place called Bareburger. They specialize in a variety of different burgers and practically everything they serve is organic. You have a huge list of options for what kind of burger you want. They have piedmontese beef, turkey, grilled chicken, veggie burger, portabella mushroom, bison, elk, ostrich, or lamb! They also had a great list of all natural cane soda and milk shakes.
They served water in these great little pitchers. I totally want one of these!
I went with the vanilla creme soda and Derek got the cane cola.
The specials they had going on were amazing! I knew what I wanted right away. The Spicy Bacon Elk Burger and it was only $10! I was already impressed with this place before our food even came. Derek got the same burger and we decided to split a basket of fries that came with three different dipping sauces.
The fries reminded me of french fries you would get at a fair, which is a good thing! They were delicious. There was curry ketchup, which I actually didn’t like very much. Derek loved it, but I felt like I was just eating a bottle of curry powder. Then there was chipotle mayo and some kind of bareburger ‘special sauce’ I enjoyed the other two sauces, but honestly they were nothing spectacular. I still enjoyed the fries a lot though.
This burger was amazing! The bun was excellent, it held everything together nicely and it was the perfect amount of bread to meat ratio. It was cooked just as I asked and it was just the right size. This was my first time eating elk and I must say it was tasty. The sauce was nice and spicy and I could taste everything on the burger separately and was therefore able to enjoy every aspect of it. I ate the whole thing and didn’t feel too full at the end of it. We sat for a while contemplating a milkshake for dessert and we ended up getting a warm brownie with ice cream AND a peanut butter and jelly milk shake! Mmmmm, it was so good!
Sorry for the blurry picture.
We were STUFFED after this! The shake was humongous and it we were able to fill up two glasses with just one shake. It was a perfect size to split, but we definitely didn’t need the brownie. The milk shake was nice and thick and it really did taste like peanut butter and jelly. I’m going to have to re-create this myself at home.
Overall this was a fantastic find and I was impressed with everything I had. The prices surprised me considering everything was organic. It was definitely reasonably priced and I can’t wait to go back. I think I’m going to try the Ostrich next time!

Oh and they are supposed to be getting organic beer and wine very shortly. They are just waiting for their Liquor License to be approved. Let’s pray they have stuff on tap!
