PB2 Update! We were supposed to receive our shipment of PB2 today. However, UPS did not deliver. It has been rescheduled for delivery tomorrow. Sorry for the delay. There was no explanation given.

MooYah Burgers Review: Like the website says, this place is a no frills burger joint. Your menu options are burgers (beef, turkey, or veggie), grilled cheese, fries, sodas, and shakes. If you are in the mood for this type of simplistic fare, then you will be pleased. Starting with a courteous and pleasant staff that is too rarely seen and going down to the clean and almost Spartan decor, the workers and the setting exemplifies the simple and welcoming nature of what they serve.

We started with the turkey burger which is more like eating a thin turkey breast than a ground turkey burger. The turkey burger was good, but we were thrown off by the breast vs. patty approach that was taken. I am going to have to give the nod to the turkey burger at Topz. Nevertheless, the MooYah version was a good difference rather than a bad one. It might just come down to a personal preference. An advantage to the MooYah way is the unlimited topping at no extra cost.

The only two items that have a charge to them are the bacon, which is fantastic, and the cheese (American or Swiss). Unfortunately, American cheese is not quite as good as a cheddar option in my option. But this is really my biggest gripe, and the bacon goes a long way to making up for this problem. The other toppings include the following: lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms, jalapenos, special sauce, buffalo sauce, A1 Steak Sauce, BBQ sauce, mustard, mayo, and ketchup. Moreover, they have a great low-carb option where they wrap your burger in big leaves of iceberg lettuce.

In the interest of offering a fair comparison to other burger places, we also tried the 100% all beef patty burger. While the turkey burgers were good with all the extras, the all beef burger leaves you wanting more in a very good way. I'm usually not a big red meat person, but this burger was outstanding. My wife and I opted share a Swiss, sautéed mushroom, and grilled onion burger. This is a burger that is worthy of going back to get again.

In addition to sacrificing my waste line for the sake of this review with the extra burger purchase, I also pilfered a few fries. They didn't have sweet potato, but the fries that they did have were plentiful and properly seasoned. At about 7 to 8 dollars for a burger with bacon, cheese, extras, and a drink on the side, this is an affordable restaurant that I highly recommend.
