The organic-patty–pushing chain rolls out a 14th outpost. Grab a stool at the reclaimed-steel counter for combos like the Big Blue Bacon (Wisconsin blue, fried onions and bacon marmalade) or the Habanero Express (pepper jack, poblano pepper, habanero-chipotle mayo). Each burger comes with your choice of protein (grass-fed beef, buttermilk-fried chicken, ostrich) and bread (brioche, wheat-flour wrap, tapioca-rice bun). Round out your meal with sides like butter pickle chips and house-made Carolina slaw, an all-natural shake (peanut butter, raspberry) or a local brew (Sixpoint, Ommegang).
