I’ve mentioned before that we tend to stick to south Davis County when we’re going out to eat. It’s the area that we’re most familiar with, and what we both grew up doing. I made a goal this year to explore restaurants in more of northern Davis County and we started the year out about as far north as we could go! If you haven’t heard about Burly Burger yet then you’ve probably been hiding under a rock because I swear we were one of the last people to go. Burly Burger has been all over social media and we’ve been wanting to try it out! I’m happy to be one of those people who have experienced its greatness so I can share it with you!
Where: Burly Burger (2572 E South Weber Dr, Ste 4, South Weber)
Cost: Plan on about $10 per person when you order a burger, fries and a drink or a shake
I spent a lot of time drooling over the menu online before we went on our family date to Burly Burger. And even though I’d prepared ahead of time, it was still hard to pick the one thing off of that menu that I most wanted to eat that day. Every single thing on that menu sounds so delicious and watching everyone’s food come to their tables while we were there, it all looks and smells just as delicious. I knew what my husband would order before I’d decided what I was going to order.
My husband ordered The Swanson, named after one of his favorite TV characters. It comes loaded with bacon and an egg and he said it was just as good as he imagined it would be. I think he also debated ordering the Mr T (pastrami burger) and The Duke (onion rings and bacon) but I don’t think the decision was too hard for him. I ordered my favorite kind of burger, one with pineapple and teriyaki sauce (The Rock) and it did not disappoint. You know you have something good going when you can’t put your burger down after you start eating because it’s too messy and there’s a big pile of napkins next to your plate after you’re finished. Our kids got chicken tenders and the lil burly burger kids meals. We also ordered Battered Fries and a basket of Onion Rings to share.
If you asked our toddlers what the best part of dinner was, it wouldn’t be the food, it would be the fire. They were so intrigued by the flames that would flare up every so often from the grill. It was the best dinnertime entertainment and I credit that for how well they acted at the restaurant. My husband and I were entertained by the art on the walls. In addition to their floor to ceiling chalkboard menus, Burly Burger has a large wall covered in fun quotes and decorations that are unique and interesting. I wish we’d picked a different seat so that I could have looked at it more without having to twist in my seat and be so obviously staring in the direction of other people who were eating.
Burly Burger’s food is classic, delicious and uniquely theirs. The atmosphere of the restaurant is fun and friendly and inviting. The staff was wonderful and the owner stopped by each table to see how everyone’s food was and thank them for coming in! I hope that Burly Burger moves their restaurant to a bigger location soon because they are popular and the tables were constantly full, even when we arrived before 5pm. If they wanted to expand south, we wouldn’t complain about that either ;)
Have you tried Burly Burger yet?
