If you live in the Boston area, chances are you’ve heard of the Boston Burger Company. The BBC is well known in the area for their over-the-top burgers, gourmet fries, craft beers and their Freak Frappes. Yes, that says Freak Frappes. They also have apps, sandwiches, and salads, but it is named the Boston BURGER Company, so I think it’s pretty much against the law not to order a burger if you go there to eat. Just sayin’. They serve burgers with names such as porkasaurus, the kitchen sink and the hot mess…I mean, how can you not try one?
Christian and I had the chance to stop in to the Boston Burger Company for dinner a few weeks ago and because we are both super smart, we started with dessert. I wanted a Freak Frappe in the worst way and I was afraid if I didn’t order my frappe first, I wouldn’t have room for it at the end of my meal.
Prepare yourselves for the incredible creations you are about to see. Seriously, you’re going to want to drop everything and head there right now!
I got the Nutella Freak Frappe. It’s made up of vanilla ice cream, nutella, nutella wafers and coconut.
Chris got the “Churro-ly We Can Taco Bout It”. It is a dulce de leche frappe with churros, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and a choco taco, dripping with chocolate and caramel syrup.
There are new Freak Frappes every month and the “Churro-ly We Can Taco Bout It” was the May special that was so popular it was added to the menu. Of course we tried each other’s and they were both to die for. I only wish I had been able to try ALL of their Freak Frappes.
But let’s get to the burgers, shall we?
All of their burgers and sandwiches are served with homemade potato chips, and choice of baked beans or slaw. Any burger can be served as a bowl. You can also sub any burger with a turkey or veggie patty for just $1.00.
Chris got the Mac Attack. The Mac Attack comes topped with homemade 4-cheese mac & cheese, bacon and it was featured on Diner’s, Drive-Ins, and Dives.
I got the 420 Burger, topped with mozzarella sticks, fried mac & cheese, onion rings, fries, bacon, golden bbq sauce and american cheese. You guys! I can’t even…..
The service at BBC was fast and out server was super attentive. My Diet Coke refills came faster than I could ask for one.
BBC has three locations: Davis Square in Somerville, Mass Ave in Cambridge and Boylston Street in Boston. We ate at the Boylston Street location (1100 Boylston) and that location is a perfect spot to walk of your dinner. It’s right outside of the Back Bay, so it’s up the street from the Prudential Center and not far from the Boston Public Garden & the Common.
As you might expect based on the location, the restaurant isn’t huge and since it’s so popular – expect to wait when you go there. In the nice weather there are seats outside, so that offers additional seating in the summertime, but it’s TOTALLY worth the wait no matter when you go. You know how you hear about a place that’s wicked hyped up, but then you get there and it doesn’t even come close to living up to the hype. Trust me, the hype about Boston Burger Company is legit! .
Pro tip: Make sure to go to the Boston Burger Company with a big appetite because you will be stuffed to the max by the time you walk out of there.
