THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Zip Burger Restaurant Review

: If you're in the mood for Burger King chic, this upscale joint with upstairs banquette seating offers options that range from all-natural Hereford beef to savory salmon to homemade veggie delight. Zip through the detailed menu choosing a bread type (such as lettuce wrap or English muffin) and cheese (goat cheese, fresh mozzarella), and don’t forget the toppings (including sauerkraut and applewood-smoked bacon). Order at the counter downstairs and then head to the second floor. Feel free to debate the healthfulness of your natural turkey burger on sourdough sliced bread as you wash it down with Belgian fries and a thick black-and-white shake.
