Technomic, states that 39% of consumers purchase a burger from a fast food restaurant on a weekly basis. If true, this could explain the reason for the explosion of burger joints in the Boston+ area. In the suburbs, one of the newest burger additions is WuBurger, which opened in Woburn earlier this month. It's still new, but as a preliminary opinion, based on four visits, it's a worthy spot for a delicious and inexpensive burger and you should make a trip there.
Located in a small strip of stores, with ample parking, WuBurger has walk-up windows where you can order your food or you can choose to sit inside. Inside, you order at the counter and then seat yourself. Dependent on the time, your food might then be delivered to you or you might be called to pick up your food. It has a kind of a casual diner feel and the food is prepared quickly so it is a good choice if you are pressed for time.
The star of the menu is their Burger, which comes as a Single Patty ($4.50) or Double Patty ($6.50) and is served on a Martin's Potato or Sesame roll. Complimentary Toppings include: Lettuce, Tomato, Raw Onion, Pickles, Relish, Ketchup, Mustard, & Mayo, For $0.50 per topping, you can also add: Wu Sauce, Grilled Onions, Grilled Mushrooms, Jalapeno, American Cheese, Cheddar Cheese, & Swiss Cheese. And for $1.00 per topping, you can add Applewood Smoked Bacon, Blue Cheese, Fried Egg, Crispy Fried Onions, & Homemade Chili. There are plenty of options to customize your burger so you can experience something different every time you visit.
They have several other sandwiches ($3.50-$7.00) including a Veggie Burger, Grilled Cheese, Roast Beef Sandwiches, Hot Dogs, Fried Chicken Breast, and more. For sides, the main options are Waffle Fries ($3) and Hand Cut Onion Rings ($4), and you can get them topped with Bacon, Cheddar Cheese Sauce or Chili ($1 each). However, on my most recent visit, they didn't have onion rings available as there appeared to be an issue with them. I'm not sure if they are back yet or not.
If you want dessert, they have a full menu of ice cream treats, with the ice cream sourced from Richardson's Farm.. The X-Thick Vanilla Frappe ($7) was good and thick, though still drinkable through a straw. Have an ice cream cone or a sundae, frozen yogurt or soft serve.
WuBurger has gotten off to an excellent start and I recommend that you check it out. Grab a burger, waffle fries & a shake and enjoy!
