Better than what, Crown Burger, Five Guys, Smashburger? Yes, better than them all!
|My kind of RV|
Rachel was inspired last Wednesday. She texted me that the Better Burger Truck was going to be close to our home from 6-8pm. I was ecstatic as I have been looking to try this truck and also that I didn’t have to make dinner; it had been a long day and I was out of ambition.
Walking towards the truck was a beautiful sight (and smell). The website mentioned a garlic burger and I got to enjoy that smell during the one-block walk. It was if I was in my own little world.
I chose the Blue Burger: Blue cheese and Horseradish blended into the patty and topped with Pepper Jack Cheese. Rachel went with the Garlic Burger: Minced Garlic and Garlic powder blended in to the patty and topped with Swiss cheese. We went “Mo Betta” on both burgers which means that it is smothered with grilled onions. We also split an order of fries. Not just any fries, Sweet Potato fries. You can also go “Mo Betta” on the fries, with garlic and savory seasoning.
To sum it up: WOW! Most garlic burgers have just garlic powder or garlic salt mixed in with the patty. The minced garlic gave this burger some power. Once you took a bite, the garlic permeated your mouth within about 5 seconds. It was strong but not overwhelming; very fresh tasting.

As for the Blue Burger, blue cheese, horseradish and pepper jack cheese is a fiery combination. I enjoyed it but it was a little overwhelming. I will try this burger again but without the pepper jack.
The sweet potato fries were excellent. They cook them a little longer than most, which makes them crispier.
The high quality of the food really comes through. All the beef comes from grass fed cows raised right here in Utah. The buns come from Stoneground, probably the best bakery in town. You pay for the quality, $7.00 for a burger, but it’s worth it. I did not try the shakes but they look delicious and come from Farr’s Ice Cream, also here in Utah.
Better Burger sure does have a niche. It was a busy night when I came by. Something that I will definitely do again; I’m thinking Bacon Burger next time, it has bacon chunks blended into the patty. My mouth will water until then.
